Having flying ants is a big problem already, but imagine having ants with wings on them. The reason why you see this peculiar looking ant flying around is that they are specially designated to breed to form other colonies. Carpenter ants are usually confused with termites due to their similar structure. When you see an ant with wings you can be almost certain that it has a reproductive role within the colony. When reproduction is a success the male ant usually dies and the female drops eggs to establish a new colony. Carpenter ants can usually be found in damp-dry wood. They are usually subdivided into two colonies which are called the mother colony and the satellite colony. It is best to contact professional ant exterminator Toronto in the Greater Toronto Area to declare your home ant-free as soon as possible!

 The mother colony prefers the wet damp logs or tree stumps from the outdoors while the satellite colony seeks to establish its colony in a much drier environment such as a home. They usually find a nesting area in wooden furniture or other dry places such as hollow walls. This, especially, poses a problem for homeowners as they cannot easily determine the entry points. For this, you need to hire a professional pest service based in the Greater Toronto Area who know how to deal with this problem with little or no trouble based on previous experiences. 

There are several methods to treat ants. The first option is ant dust which can be spread in areas that are difficult to reach. You must first conduct an interior inspection. The second one involves ant bait. Ants in search of food and water will pick it up and bring it back to the colony. As they eat from it, it will immediately get rid of the ants as they like to feast on their ant friends as well. The one that will eat the next and will also perish leading to a chain reaction. To deal with this problem effectively, you will need to hire a professional pest control service in the Greater Toronto Area as the technicians know where to look for. Most older Ontarian homes have crevices, cracks, or holes that provide an entry point into setting up a permanent place for the carpenter ants.

It is best to take preventable measures as soon as you suspect a bed bug presence in your residence. This is to be taken seriously as females lay up to hundreds of eggs in their lifetime and are known to even breed with their offspring which makes the likelihood of an infestation in a short amount of time inevitable.
