Although they are more active in the warmer months, pavement ants can still be found in the dead of winter, and worse, they will be looking to get into your warm, dry home for shelter and food. When this happens, you can look to Toodaloo for protection from these tiny home invaders. Barrie pavement ant control and removal is only a phone call away, so don’t wait!
Pavement ants are pale brown to black in colour, and are between 2½ to 3 millimetres in length. They are fond of sugar and greasy foods, but will also consume other dead insects. With so many food options, they can survive for a long time in your home. And when they do, they will make their presence known in the worst way possible. They will wreak havoc on lawns and gardens, pathways and driveways, as well as indoor areas. Over time, this can cause such surfaces to crack and warp from all the ant activity.
One of the main struggles people willl have in attempting to get rid of pavements ants is their nests. Pavement ants, unlike other species of ant, will have parent nests, which are sometimes outside the home. but still nearby. The rest are what are known as satellite nests. These satellite nests will be made in the vicinity of the parent nest, but far away enough that it could survive without it. This is to ensure the survival of the ant population. Obviously, this can be a problem for those facing an infestation.
Toodaloo technicians can guarantee results, unlike store-bought methods which often do not work at all. For one thing, we will make sure to locate all nests in the area. We will also do so without drilling multiple holes in your walls. That is because we have up-to-date equipment such as thermal imaging devices and injection rods.
