There are few main types of ants that infest properties in the Toronto area, the carpenter, pharaoh, pavement ants and the occasional Citronella ants.

Carpenter Ants

Of these the most bothersome is the carpenter ant as it can cause extensive structural damage to your property if left their population is left unchecked. These ants do not feed on wood but rather chew through it, leaving behind them particles that resemble sawdust, to create space for their colonies. They mostly feed on insects, plant materials and household foodstuffs. Even though a single colony might not pose serious structural problems to your property in most cases these ants create so-called satellite colonies in the same structure. In buildings, they make their nests in moist or humid areas such as between paneled doors, in wood cabinets near dishwashers, in damp locations behind baseboards, and in window frames.

Pavement Ants

The pavement and pharaoh ants do not pose as serious of a threat as the carpenter ant but still need to be dealt with. The pavement ant usually enters homes by the cracks that form in the concrete slabs in basements or can be found around patio areas. They primarily feed on oils and grease but have been seen to eat insects and sweet materials. They are perhaps the most common household ant pest in Ontario.

Pharaoh Ants

The pharaoh ants can be difficult to eradicate since they make their nests in highly inaccessible locations usually near warm moist areas. Dealing with pharaoh ants can lead to a serious infestation since these ants are known to break off the main nest and create satellite colonies in the same structure if inappropriate pest control methods are applied. Pharaoh ant colonies have multiple queens and worker ants can be as many as 300000 strong.

Citronella Ants

The Citronella Ant, the Latin name for which is Lasius Interjectus, are named thus as they give out a strong lemony odor when crushed. They also emit this smell when threatened. Yellow in color, these ants are also commonly referred to as Yellow Ants, although they can be light yellow, a darker yellow or even light brown in color. Their diet mainly consists of the honeydew that is produced by subterranean aphids as well as mealybugs.

Dealing with ant infestations is not an easy task and in most cases should be left to a professional. Finding and treating an ant nest can pose a serious challenge to most home owners. Our exterminators have ample experience and are able to locate nests and place pesticide baits at the correct locations around your property to deal with the infestation. In only a few instances will there be need to drill holes to better access the ant nest and apply pesticides.
