Here at Advantage Pest Control, we have been recieving an influx of calls from customers for Carpenter Ants. Right now, in the spring, is when carpenter ants send out reproductive ants to attempt to start new colonies. The ice storm a few months ago, left many trees damaged or removed which limitted the areas where carpenter ants naturally live. These colonies have been attempting to relocate inside houses. The major areas affected include Toronto, Mississauga and Pickering but we have also been recieving calls from Markham, New Market and Vaughan. Carpenter ants are a difficult pest to eliminate and require an integrated pest management approach that often includes baiting and spraying. Take a look at our page on Carpenter Ants and if you suspect an infestations please give us a call at 416-840-4040 to speak to a carpenter ant specialist.
