Although they are not as worrisome as other pests, pavement ants are a nuisance all on their own. Small mounds of upturned dirt or displaced stones are tell-tale signs that ants are in your space. Luckily, if you are in need of Kelowna pavement ant control and removal, Toodaloo can help.
Pavement ants protect themselves by finding the most secure shelter possible. This makes areas under sidewalks, driveways, paving stones and concrete, prime real estate. Kelowna, with its inclined driveways and paths which must be paved in order to be functional. This provides tons of places, both commercial and residential, that can be made into homes for these pesky pests.
Far from being obviously present, pavement ants are usually concealed and the most visible in summer months as they begin their mating process. Ants will hunker down near ready-food sources and enjoy many of the same foods that humans consume. This makes backyards and patio areas a hotbed for pavement ant activity. It is a rare occurrence but these insects can even bite when they feel threatened.
Locating the nests of these pavement ants can be a very difficult undertaking because they leave numerous patches of upturned dirt along the pavement lines. Simple solutions such as sprays or other insecticides are not the answer to your pavement ant problems, as these methods remove only the surface ants but do not penetrate down to the colony itself. Trying to remove ants this way is like trying to remove weeds by only pulling off their heads. The roots will continue to thrive under the surface.
Although fully removing an ant population from any space is an impossible task, reducing the populations will go a long way in making sure your home or business does not become overrun. Our Toodaloo technicians use eco-friendly solutions to limit to populating where it begins, with the colonies.
