Cooler Temperatures See Bugs Heading Indoors

With warm sunny days becoming fewer and fewer many business and home owners are starting to see more bugs seeking warmth by heading indoors.  Bugs have strong survival instincts and are able to detect very subtle changes in temperature and environment – and when the sun goes down their hunt for a warm home to wait out winter kicks in.

Carpenter ants in Calgary homes can wreak havoc in a fairly short time frame.  Carpenter ants are large, brown/black, their bodies are divided in to three segments and they sport a bent antenna.  These ants can bore their way into wood – destroying furniture and house frames.  To prevent carpenter ants from entering your home or business – clean up your environment so that it becomes a negative breeding environment.  Clean floors to remove sticky trails, fix any leaking faucets, and de-clutter to remove any form of shelter for ants.  If ants are already an issue in your home, contact a Pest Control Company in CalgaryOne Man and a Ladybug provide fast and effective service that handles all manner of pest issuesContact this Calgary Pest Control Firm today – 403.262.666
