Stop Ants from Taking Over Your Kitchen

Stop Ants from Taking Over Your Kitchen
User Rating

Chances are, if you are reading this article, you are trying to prevent ants from taking over your home or business. Either way, you’re in the right place: here you will find advice on how to keep these insects away, and how to eliminate them if it’s too late for prevention.

Always work with an exterminator when it comes to an infestation. Doing it yourself will take a lot of time, effort, and materials, and typically results in a repeat infestation. It can be incredibly difficult to locate and exterminate the entire bug population in your home. The Camponotus species creates a large colony around a queen, but then creates satellite colonies around it. Satellite colonies often wind up in houses, and they usually will reappear next year if the original colony has not been treated. An extermination company like Toronto’s Power Pest Control will arrive in two visits: the first to track and trail the foragers back to their colony in order to identify all possible sources. It’s only once they know exactly where to find the bugs that they treat your home.

However, before you hire a company, there are some things you need to know and ask about.

Warranty A warranty is your ticket to an insect-free life, guaranteed. Getting a warranty means that the exterminator will come to your house at no charge to follow up on whatever treatment you picked. If you want to learn more about year-long and multi-species warranties, contact for further information.

Prevention for Commercial Clients Businesses, andin particular restaurants, should take a preventative strategy when it comes to pests. That means hiring an extermination company to do weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly visits to thoroughly check for the presence of bugs. This allows you to nip problems in the bud before they get out of control and ruin your business. The experts at Power Pest Control recommend 360-degree Toronto ant control as well as traps for rodents, roach monitoring, and integrated management practices adopted from agricultural techniques.

Chemicals You also need to make sure that the chemicals used for eliminating pests are safe for everyone, including pets. Talk to the exterminator beforehand and ask about their pesticides.

Ability Some of the most common pests in the Toronto area includespiders, millipedes, centipedes, cockroaches, bed bugs, hornets, wasps, bees, ants, as well as rodents like mice and rats. Find a company that can deal with any type of infestation, or even multiple species at the same time.

Licensing If you do turn to ant control in Toronto, then you should know that that the most trusted pest control companies employ licensed technicians who are licensed with the Ministry of Environment and will show you an Ontario extermination card.

All in all, keeping your kitchen clean and being conscious of what pests are common in your area can help prevent an infestation. However, it may simply not be enough to keep colonies fromestablishing themselves inside your home. The more you know, the more you can do to eliminate them and keep them from coming back.
