Have you ever contemplated the sheer magnitude of ants on Earth? It’s a staggering number: one quadrillion, or a one followed by fifteen zeroes. One million billion ants populate our world. While ants are undoubtedly an integral part of our planet’s ecosystem, their proximity to our homes and properties can necessitate action.
If your residence or property in Edmonton is grappling with an ant infestation, you’re well aware of the challenges they pose. Ants can wreak havoc in your yard, damaging your lawn and garden. Indoors, they are known to cause structural damage by chewing on foundations, walls, insulation, and even electrical cables. Some ant species come equipped with painful stings, while others can potentially transmit diseases. And the frustration of discovering ants in your pantry, cupboards, or wherever food is stored is all too familiar.
In the Edmonton region, we encounter several common ant species, including Carpenter Ants, Pavement Ants, Sugar Ants, and Pharaoh Ants. These insects have individual lifespans spanning several years but thrive in colonies that can house up to 500,000 ants. They employ scent trails to communicate with each other, facilitating the discovery of food and attractants. Often, these trails originate from a central nest.
While many do-it-yourself ant treatments target visible ants, addressing the root of the issue – the nest – requires expert intervention.
At Edmonton Classic Pest Control, our process initiates with the precise identification of the ant species present on your property. Recognizing the specific type of ants responsible for the infestation serves as the primary step in devising an effective strategy for their management. Subsequently, our skilled technicians will formulate a tailored treatment plan, which might encompass preventive actions, such as the removal of attractants, in addition to the implementation of active pest control strategies.
