Pharaoh Ant Removal in Toronto
Are you experiencing a problem with Pharaoh ants in your home or business? ICE is proud to offer effective ant control for Toronto homes and businesses. Pharaoh ants are also known as “tramp ants” because of their transient nesting behaviour.
Pharaoh ants are a yellow, light brown or reddish colour and have a stinger on their bodies, but are unable to sting. These pests are most commonly found in kitchen and bathroom areas, and the nest can be very difficult to find because it is usually located in wall voids or underneath flooring. They will usually occupy any crack or crevice with sufficient heat and humidity.
Pharaoh ants are classified as omnivores and will survive on fats, proteins and carbohydrates. These ants will only eat a certain type of food for so long, and when given the option, will switch to another food source.
Treatment and Prevention of Pharaoh Ants
Pharaoh ants cannot be treated with a residual spray. This is because once the spraying begins, the queen ant will move her nest to a new location. In other words, sprays and DIY methods can actually increase the size of a nest instead of eliminating it. Pharaoh ants are treated with a gel baiting system. Our team will also be dusting all wall voids in the home, and a complete non-toxic attic dusting will also take place.
