Ants are some of the strongest pests in the animal kingdom. When a bug is determined, they can do great things but this sometimes includes sneaking into your home. An infestation of ants is usually blamed on excess crumbs or poor housekeeping but the truth is, that there are plenty of reasons for these intruders to cross your threshold. Whatever might have brought them in, there is a sure-fire way to get them out: calling Toodaloo!
It is tough to imagine that something so small can cause so much damage, but ants are constantly at work! They might begin their lives in the great outdoors but carpenter ants are keen to be where the action (and the food) is. Colonies are built up in heavily wooded areas but when they become overpopulated, workers take flight. An opened door might be an invitation to human visitors but ants don’t waste an opportunity. Openings around door or window frames, cracks in foundations and even air conditioning and dryer vents can be access points for pests. Once indoors, ants begin to chew away at anything wood-based. Flooring, beams, decks and even furniture are all in danger from these small intruders. Unlike termites, ants do not eat the wood but simply take bites out of it, creating pathways to move deeper into properties and create new satellite colonies.
Basic baits might attract a few ants but a colony can have thousands of members. This means that pest control experts have to get creative in order to get rid of infestations completely. Treating the presence of ants at the surface level can’t manage those hiding out behind walls or under flooring. A few good hiding spots are not enough to keep our Toodaloo technicians from getting results. Imaging tools and injection rods help our experts track down high-traffic areas. Instead of drilling unnecessary holes in walls or floors, imaging helps to pinpoint necessary-to-treat locations and access them directly, getting the best results without any undue damage.
