Pest problems come in all shapes and sizes, and carpenter ants are some of the smallest. It is easy enough to take on the rogue ant or two but as a group, these intruders become clever. If you are dealing with a pest problem, our specialists can handle carpenter ant infestations at every level. Don’t live another day sharing your space with uninvited guests when you can call Toodaloo for your Chilliwack carpenter ant removal.
Some infestations might begin with a rustling sound or the appearance of droppings but ants infestations are much more sinister. This particular ant species begins their lives outdoors before breaking into homes and commercial properties. Once indoors, insects spread their numbers, creating satellite colonies behind closed doors. The only real clues to an infestation are small entry holes in wooden materials, tiny piles of sawdust and brief glimpses of ants themselves. Understanding these pests and their process is key to complete removal and prevention methods.
Parent colonies are constructed outdoors in rotting or decayed wood or even fallen tree branches and tree stumps. It does not take long for these nesting sites to becomes overrun with adult ants, mature larvae and eggs. When these insects run out of leg room, winged ants will take off in search of new digs. Instead of using teeth to break in, most ant species look for an opening like a door or window ajar or even areas of damaged wood. Anywhere that has moisture problems is an invitation for insect issues – which is, unfortunately, all of B.C! When you are looking for a local service to handle your carpenter ant control, our fool proof system has got you covered.
Carpenter ants feed on all the usual suspects but they still chew through wood and cellulose-based materials. This means that satellite nests can be tough to track down. Anything from a wall void to hollow doors can house hundreds of critters without property owners ever knowing. Playing the guessing game not only prolongs the infestation but can cause a ton of unnecessary damage. Drilling into walls or flooring and hoping for the best does not help locate carpenter ant nests. Instead of “taking a shot” on your property, our Toodaloo experts use imaging tools and injection rods to treat populations directly.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
