Professional Ant Control Services for your home, cottage, event or business.
When ants enter our home through tiny cracks, they leave behind a scent, so other ants can follow the trail to food. Unfortunately, that trail often begins at a nest. If the ants nest outside, they can damage lawns and gardens. If inside, hidden in your walls or foundations, ants can damage the structure by chewing wood, insulation, and electrical cable. Some species of ant also inflict painful stings, with the ant venom causing some people to develop inflamed skin and experience cramps and headaches. As well, a few species, such as pharaoh ants, spread diseases such as salmonella, staphylococcus, and clostridium, which may cause botulism. Ants are unsightly and will contaminate your food. Some ant colonies can also grow exponentially quickly, making them even more difficult to eradicate.
Most do-it-yourself pest treatments only kill the ants you can see – in reality, hundreds more of the pests could be on their way. To truly end the infestation and prevent ants invading your home in the future, you need a professional pest control service.
Most ants come inside looking for food. They are attracted by sweet and sticky substances.
Ant proof your environment by making food unavailable:
Always cover food - who knows where that ant has been before it crawls across your food
Clean food and liquid spills immediately
Clean food debris from under kitchen appliances
Make sure all garbage cans are tightly sealed
Keep compost piles enclosed and covered. Keep as far away from the house as possible
Put away pet food as soon as your pet is finished eating
You can also help prevent ants entering your home by sealing access points such as cracks and crevices in door and window frames
