It is not unusual to catch an ant indoors every once in a while. These pests are small, determined and hard to keep out of your home or business. Instead of being just minor inconveniences, these ants can be health hazards, annoyances and attractants for other pests. There is no pest too small or infestation too large for our Toodaloo technicians to handle. When ants are a problem in your home or business, call Toodaloo for our Timmins carpenter ant control and removal.
Typical carpenter ant colonies contain ants of different sizes and colours. They might look different, but they all have on thing in common: they chew through wood. Unlike termites, these pests chew through wooden and cellulose materials but they do not do it for sustenance. It can be difficult to spot ants even when they are out in the open but when they are behind your walls or under flooring, it is downright impossible.
Carpenter ants create parents colonies outdoors but as these spaces become full, winged ants take off to find new places to live. These satellite colonies are usually in close proximity to their parents colonies, but can also house hundreds of thousands of ants. These colonies are created in difficult to reach and harder to spot areas. One of the easiest ways to spot a carpenter ant infestation is by the clues that they leave behind. Those winged ants that have scouted new living areas shed their wings in order to enter your space. These discarded wings, small piles of sawdust, as well as droppings are all indicators that carpenter ants have taken over your property.
In the past, pest removal companies have had to drill multiple holes into walls and flooring in order to find high traffic areas. Instead of causing unnecessary damage, our Toodaloo technicians have come up with methods that can track these pests without any damage. Thermal imagine allows our Toodaloo technicians to to see behind walls and track these pests to their hideouts. Once those problem areas have become obvious, injection rods allow our experts to treat the area directly, driving these pests out.
