Yes – they’re back – Ants. Season after season these tiny, industrious, sometimes damage causing critters, resurface to annoy the heck out of Calgary home and business owners. Calgary Pest Control Firm – One Man and a Ladybug – offer some great advice for preventing an ant infestation and what to do if you have one.
According to the experts – there are over 100 species of ants in Canada – so we shouldn’t be too shocked to see some working busily in our yards and homes. Not always a negative sight – ants live happily alongside other insects and help to control the number of unwanted pests like Silverfish and Moths – ants are tiny little insects that contribute to the environmental health of gardens, and it’s only when their numbers increase dramatically and/or they invade a home that action by a Calgary Pest Management Company is required.
Ants love to feed off sugary, oily foods – and their presence is usually noticed when they are on the look-out for sustenance. The first step in avoiding an Ant Infestation is to keep counter tops squeaky clean, sweep floors to remove crumbs, and make sure that there are no signs of sticky food (like honey) left on counters or sinks. If ants can’t find food they will be less enticed to take up residence in your home – make sure your garbage is taken out regularly and disposed of away from doors. If you’ve already noticed an army of ants marching up your walls or along baseboards, it’s time to contact a Pest Control team, as ants can cause significant damage to a home – destroying wood structures while trying to build a nest. Both financially and emotionally draining – an Ant Infestation in Calgary needs to be addressed immediately to prevent further damage.
