    Toronto Ant Control Services For Your Home

    Ants have a tendency to invade homes and destroy property, costing homeowners in Toronto millions of dollars each year in repairs.

    If the ant’s nest is outside, they can damage lawns and gardens. If inside, hidden in your walls or foundations, ants can damage the structure by chewing wood, insulation and electrical cable.

    Some ant species inflict painful stings and spread disease. These include:

    1. Pharaoh Ants 

    which carry salmonella, staphylococcus, and clostridium;

    2. Carpenter Ants 

    which spread the fungus that causes histoplasmosis;

    3. Pavement Ants 

    can carry germs and disease, potentially contaminating human and pet foods;

    4. Fire Ants 

    which release a toxin that can cause temporary paralysis;

    5. Argentine Ants 

    whose venom can cause inflamed skin and headaches.

    Do-it-yourself ant control methods will not eliminate these pests; you need a professional ant exterminator in Toronto to get rid of ant infestation once and for all.

    Ants Extermination Frequently Asked Questions

    How does Power Pest Control eliminate ants from a property?

    Before your Power Pest Control Toronto technician begins an ant treatment, we will inspect the area to identify the type of ants present. This helps ensure that not only is the correct solution implemented but also that the particular attractant drawing ants to your property is identified.

    What are the treatment options for ants that Power Pest Control offers?

    The solutions to your ant problem will depend on the species and extent of the infestation. There are a variety of options available for controlling ants, including baits and dusts, occasional spraying, or a combination of control methods.

    Are the treatment options harmful to me and/or my pets?

    All pesticides have the potential to cause harm if not applied according to label directions. However, your Power Pest Control Toronto technician is well trained in the use of all pesticides used in our ant control program. You can rest assured knowing that your experienced technician will safely apply any necessary treatments in order to solve your ant problem.

    How can I prevent ants from coming back?

    To prevent future ant infestations, first determine why the ants are there. Food, water and shelter are what is attracting them to your property. Clean up food crumbs and spills; store food properly in tight closing containers; seal cracks and crevices in walls, baseboards, subflooring and walkways; and prevent nests from forming by eliminating moisture sources.

    Do you Have stubborn carpenter ants?

    We can help get rid of them!

    Carpenter ants are among the most difficult ant species to control on your own. They nest in moist woods such as within porches, windows, and inside roofing.

    While they feed on other insects, they are not fun to have around, entering through cracks and other openings or via branches that rest on the roof. Capable of chewing through wood almost like a termite when building their nests or tunnelling, they can be a nuisance.

    Our services at Power Pest Control Toronto not only mitigate the survival of carpenter ant colonies but also can prevent future infestations from occurring by inspecting your home’s perimeter and sealing off entry points with caulk or other materials that are safe for use around humans but fatal for ants.
