Are carpenter ants taking over Toronto??
We have recently been completely inundated with calls for ant control in local Toronto homes. Most customers complain of large black ants, some with wings running rampant throughout the house!
What are these ants with wings or flying ants?
The winged ants, most people confuse with queens. However this is not the case. These are the reproductive males and only have one purpose in life, to mate. If your seeing them in your house in late spring or early summer, then chances are, you have a colony.
What can I do about carpenter ants?
Ant control in Toronto or any other city in Canada should be done professionally and involve an integrated pest management protocol. That’s what we mean by IPM.
Advantage pest control employs this technique in our program and it is essentially what separates us from most of our competitors. We are always looking for new ways to integrate new products with our licensed and seasoned technicians. Baits are a good example of new technologies we constantly add to our ipm program.
