Carpenter Ant TREATMENT

There is no question where carpenter ants get their name. These woodworking pests are less concerned with construction and more committed to destruction. This can be beneficial outside but when these critters begin to creep into your home, it can mean serious destruction and costly repairs.

If tiny demolition crews have made their way into your space, don’t hesitate to call a professional for your Victoria carpenter ant removal services. Pest control experts can track and treat any populations indoors and in surrounding outdoor areas. For quick removal and long-term results, look no further than your local Toodaloo technicians.

Tracking Your Carpenter Ant Infestation

Spotting a rogue ant is common enough; so common, in fact, that you might not think twice about seeing one of these pests scurrying across a bench, landing or porch. The trouble with pests this small is that closed doors and window screens are not enough to keep insects out. Any tear in a screen or crack and crevice in walls; even ducts and vents might as well have miniature welcome signs for pests.

Carpenter ants begin their journey outdoors in downed trees, stumps and decayed wood. Parent colonies can range in size but there is a limit to how large they can grow within their resources. When numbers get too big, worker ants take off in search of a new home. This might sound well and good when you are expecting them to stay outdoors, but this often isn’t the case!

The interior of homes are the ideal spot to build a satellite colony. Wall voids and spots below flooring are low traffic areas where pest populations can thrive. All it takes is one insect to create a chain reaction. Foraging ants leave chemical trails for others to follow. From here, each ant is hard at work, building their space, by destroying yours one bite at a time.

The Habits of Highly Active Pest

From Canadian cities to the United States and Mexico, every North American is familiar with ants. These pesky pests are a part of the outdoor landscape of these nations, but not many people can tell one from another. More than being confused with other ants, carpenter ants are often confused with termites.

The average black carpenter ant does not eat wood, but do chew through it. For safety reasons, carpenter ants build their colonies in low-traffic areas and are not afraid to burrow to get to an ideal spot. Instead of chewing through tree branches, these pests damage wood around homes by gnawing through wood beams, floors, furniture and leaving only sawdust and wood shavings behind.

A bite here or there might not seem like a threat but a thousand mouths, chewing around the clock can severely impact the structural integrity of your property. Weakened materials can be a health hazard and this makes quick action so important.

Seeking Professional Carpenter Ant Control

In the past, trying to kill carpenter ants meant widespread destruction across your space. Because ant colonies can be anywhere, pest control industries were forced to drill holes into certain areas like walls or flooring in order to catch a glimpse of a nest or high traffic area. Luckily, this is not the case anymore!

In order to track down ant colonies without unnecessary damage, our Toodaloo technicians use imaging tools and injection rods to track and treat pest populations efficiently without causing damage. By treating these areas directly, our experts are able to avoid fumigation with harsh chemicals, opting for a direct and environmentally-friendly approach.
