Carpenter ants did not get their name by being lazy. In fact, these ants of some of the hardest working pests that you could ever come across. Our Toodaloo technicians both recognize and appreciate all the work that these pests do. However, your property is not their workplace and it is time for these pests to punch out! Your Red Deer carpenter ant control and removal does not need to be a pain. The expert technicians at Toodaloo Pest Control are highly trained and eager to lend a helping hand.
In rain or shine, carpenter ants are happy to be spending time outdoors. These ants create parent colonies in damp or rotting wood. Each parent colony comes complete with a single queen and a quickly growing population. When these numbers outgrow their space, winged female workers take off to find newer areas to find food and shelter. This all seems innocent enough but when this relocation happens to be inside your property, it is bad news.
When winged female ants find new, viable places to call home, they shed their wings and stick around. As soon as they land, these ants start to chew their way through wooden materials. If you thought it was bad enough to have them munching on your deck or patio, they do not stop there! Due to their size, ants can squeeze through tiny spaces in order to gain access to your home. Once they are in, these pests can be unstoppable without proper treatment techniques. That is when you call Toodaloo.
In order to properly remove carpenter ants from your residential or commercial properties, you need to have an idea of where to find them. Because pavement ants work alongside the bones of your home or business, it is nearly impossible to see them all or their colonies. Sure, you can spot the odd one on your counter or in your cupboard but colonies can average populations in the thousands. That is why our Toodaloo technicians use specialty tools to track the movement of these ant populations behind walls or under flooring.
If you want to get these pests out from behind walls, cracks or corners around your space, call Toodaloo today.
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.
