These social insects forage for food Indoors and Outdoors. They cause damage to food and at times our structures.

Some of the most common pest species of ants in Toronto area are:

Pavement Ants, Carpenter Ants, Fire Ants and Pharaoh Ants.

Our preferred extermination technique for an infestation of Ants

We would inspect and determine if Bait or Spray is more appropriate in the given situation.

Typically, if the ants inside the property are interested in foods, we would deploy suitable baits. Ants will find this bait during their foraging activities. Ants will not only feed on this bait but also carry it back to the nest to feed the Ants that are devoted to maintaining the colony. Some Ants may have multiple feeding on the deployed bait as the bait’s lethal characteristics do not become evident immediately upon ingestion.

So in most situation, by about 5 weeks time, most Ants would have become affected by the hidden poison in the bait. We expect that all Ants would have expired by now. The bait is usually in the form of a paste or a gel or is granular.
