Ants don’t exactly inspire fear in Canadians, but in some cases, they should! Every day, property owners are facing damage to homes and businesses at the tiny hands of these household pests. Pavement ants might seem small but they can create large-scale damage over time. Instead of waiting for the worst, call an experienced for your Chilliwack pavement ant removal.
Much like other species of ants, this particular breed begin their journey outdoors. These pests will live in colonies until the nesting site becomes overcrowded. When this occurs, worker ants will set out, foraging for food sources and other resources. While certain pests stick to damp environments or rotting wood, pavement ants prefer urban centres. These particular ants can be found lurking around the cracks of pavement, brick patios, and building foundations. Despite being visible from the surface level, these insects construct tunnels underground. A passageway here or there is no problem at all, but overtime there are more and more of these weaving underground.
As tunnels become more and more common, the areas above them become unstable. Pest management does more than get rid of ants – it protects the condition of your property. Concrete, like driveways or walkways can crack under weight that is distributed unevenly. This leads to costly repairs and replacements. In addition to broken concrete outside, these ants spread bacteria indoors. As ants move around your kitchens or food preparation stations, they spread germs that are then picked up and ingested by their human hosts. This process of contamination makes proper pavement ant control all the more important.
Contrary to what most property owners might believe, ant baits are not the only way to get rid of pests. Proper pest control involves tracking down high traffic areas and treating infestations accordingly. In the past, the only way to identify satellite colonies for ants was to spot them visually. Because ants are prone to creating their nests in covered areas, this visual identification is easier said than done. Instead of drilling unnecessarily into walls or flooring, our experts have found a better way! Imaging tools allow our specialists to find satellite colonies and hot spots for insects without drilling into materials. Once these locations have been identified, injection rods are used to treat them at their source.
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.
