Common Ant Types That Invade Your Home

Ants are a nightmare. They infest your home and spread disease. They eat your food, endangering your supply and many of them ruin your house in a variety of ways. It is best to contact professional carpenter ant exterminator Toronto in the Greater Toronto Area to declare your home ant-free as soon as possible!

Pharaoh ants are a frustrating variety. They make their nests in people’s homes and are very tiny so they can get through truly tiny cracks. They have multiple queens in one nest and when they reach maturity they will start making satellite nests around your home. This will drastically increase the number of ants and the chances of seeing them. 

Citronella ants are not common but are recognizable by the fact that when you step on them they release a  strong citric scent. Most do not know why this is.

Pavement ants can break through old broke concrete that was not properly cured. If your foundation is breaking apart then there is a very good chance you will end up with pavement ants. They are tiny black ants that will live in your home and make a nuisance of themselves. They, like all ants, are there to find food and water. So make sure to remove those things to prevent ant infestations. 

Carpenter ants are one of the worst. They start out in rotten wood on your property but quickly move into your home and begin digging into the wood and furniture of your house. They are hard to notice until their colony reaches maturity at which point you will see winged ants. 

In all these cases your home is in danger from infestation. Your food supply and your basic comfort are important and having ants can drastically affect your comfort. So call the professionals if you have an infestation. We have the tools we need to end the infestation in short order.
