Ants

If you’re lucky enough to live in Toronto, or the Greater Toronto Area, you may be familiar with some of the most common ants found in and around the city. Here are five of the most common species:

The Carpenter ant is one of the largest ants found in Toronto, and is known for its tendency to build nests in wood. If you suspect you have a carpenter ant infestation, look out for small piles of sawdust near their nesting sites.

The Pavement ant is a smaller black ant that is commonly found living in cracks in sidewalks and driveways. These ants are relatively harmless, but can become a nuisance if they invade your home.

The Pharaoh ant is a tiny yellow/brown ant that gets its name from its habit of infesting homes and businesses in search of food. These ants can be difficult to control once they establish themselves, Using insecticide on them will only make the infestation worse by causing the multiple queens to bud (spread) so it’s important to call an TruTech Pest And Wildlife Control if you think you have an infestation.

The Odorous house ant gets its name from the fact that it gives off a specific smell when crushed. These ants are commonly found in kitchen cabinets and pantries, and can be a real nuisance if they get into your food supply.

The Argentine ant is another small black ant that is commonly found in home and businesses around Toronto and the GTA. These ants are relatively harmless, but can become a problem if they compete with other ants for food resources.

To prevent future ant infestations, it is important to maintain a clean and dry home, seal cracks and crevices that ants can use to enter, and remove food and water sources that may attract them. With the right approach, it is possible to successfully remove ants and keep them from returning.
