The Okanagan Valley boasts some of the most beautiful views that British Columbia has to offer – when you can see them! The summers might be bright and warm but they give way to cloud cover and a whole lot of rain. This rains keeps the wood surrounding your property damp and inviting for pests – especially carpenter ants. Where there are ants in your yard, there are likely ants in your home. If you are dealing with uninvited guests, call Toodaloo for your Kelowna carpenter ant removal.
A few ants here and there may not seem like much of an issue in the grand scheme of your property, but these pests do not travel alone. Squishing one or two of these insects under your shoe won’t do anything to affect the overall population. Pest problems do not happen overnight but are the product of travelling. Parent colonies often house large populations of ants. These colonies grow and grow until they are no longer sustainable. When this happens, winged worker ants take flight in search of a new place to create a satellite nest. Carpenter ants find small openings along decks, patios, and uneven door or window frames.
Once they have decided on the perfect spot, these workers shed their wings and commit! Whether you know a lot or very little about ants, the main takeaway is that carpenter ants wreck wood. These pests have a primarily protein-based diet, they can eat crumbs, scraps and sweets as well. Unlike termites, carpenter ants just chew through wood without eating it. Over time, this habit can lead to costly repairs and replacements for property owners.
Carpenter ants thrive in damp environments, making Kelowna a perfect place to call home.
