Our work methods

Here are our extermination methods for each type of ant:

Carpenter ants

 

Carpenter ant nests are most commonly found in thick wood structures contained in the exterior shell of a home, usually in areas which are or had been attained by humidity. Nests are rarely found in division walls or floors.

You have carpenter ants in your home during spring, winter, or autumn?
Then you can be assured that they have a nest within the structure of your home.

The most common areas for carpenter ants to form their nests are:

  1. Bottom of; window frames, door frames and patio door frames.

  2. Balcony structures, especially supporting beams.

  3. Roof structures, especially in roofs which have had water infiltration or those with inadequate ventilation, (common in homes from the fifties or sixties).

  4. Behind the tile wall in your shower, especially if a window is located in that wall.

  5. In the full wood wall located behind the brick wall of older homes.

  • After having inspected the premises and asked a number of questions, The AntMan will determine several areas within the wood structure of your home, where a nest may be located. He will give you a precise estimate within a price range given to you previously on the phone and will then proceed to do the work. 

  • A carpenter ant nest can only be eliminated by injecting the insecticide into the wall or wood structure in which the nest is situated. All interior spraying along baseboards, exterior walls or foundations is totally useless for the elimination of a carpenter ant nest. Therefore no interior or exterior spraying is done because this will only give false results.

 

  • The AntMan will only proceed to inject the insecticide into the chosen areas either by drilling small holes and then sealing the holes, or by using other methods which do not require any drilling, therefore no insecticide is accessible to anyone in the house and odour, if any, is minor. This treatment is safe for most adults children and pets. Special precautions may be necessary for people with respiratory problems, pregnant women, babies, birds and fish.

  • The main goal is to eliminate your existing ant nest and with the use of high quality, low toxicity, odourless insecticides like octaborate powder, which is also a fungicide, treated areas like attics, balconies and the full wood wall behind the brick wall will be protected against mildew and insects for a period of up to 20 years.

  • 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment there should be no more carpenter ants in the house and also no ants going up and down on the exterior of the house or crawling back and forth on a cable, telephone or electrical wire.

 

This treatment is guaranteed for a period of 18 months with no limit to the amount of visits required within this period.

Small carpenter ant

 

This carpenter ant is a similar but smaller version (5-7mm) of the regular carpenter ant. This ant will not dig through wood to nest in, but prefers nesting in hollow structures like aluminum or pvc window or door frames or any other such hollow structures.

  • After having inspected the premises and asked a number of questions, The AntMan will determine several areas within the structure of your home, where a nest may be located. He will give you a precise estimate within a price range given to you previously on the phone and will then proceed to do the work.

  • A small carpenter ant nest can only be eliminated by injecting the insecticide into the wall or hollow structure in which the nest is situated. All interior spraying along baseboards, exterior walls or foundations is totally useless for the elimination of a small carpenter ant nest. Therefore no interior or exterior spraying is done because this will only give false results.

 

  • The AntMan will only inject the insecticide into the chosen areas either by drilling small holes and then sealing the holes, or by using other methods which do not require any drilling, therefore no insecticide is accessible to anyone in the house and odour, if any, is minor.This treatment is safe for most adults children and pets. Special precautions may be necessary for people with respiratory problems, pregnant women, babies, birds and fish. 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment there should be no more small carpenter ants in the house and also no ants going up and down the exterior walls of the house.

 

This treatment is guaranteed for a period of 6 to 18 months with no limit to the amount of visits required within this period.

Pavement ants

 

Pavement ants vary from dark brown to black and measure 3-4 mm. Outside, these ants will nest under rocks and cement slabs, in pavement cracks, under stone patios, etc. Within homes they will nest in gaps and cracks of concrete foundations and cement floors, behind brick walls, chimneys and under door frames or basement window frames. This ant can hibernate within the structure of your home during colder temperatures. If you have these ants in your home during autumn, winter or spring, it means that a nest is living in your home.

 

  • After having inspected the premises and asked a number of questions, The AntMan will determine several areas within the structure of your home, where a nest may be located. He will give you a precise estimate within a price range given to you previously on the phone and will then proceed to do the work.

  • A pavement ant nest can only be eliminated by injecting the insecticide into the crack, crevice or brick structure in which the nest is situated.  All interior spraying along baseboards is totally useless for the elimination of a pavement ant nest. Therefore no interior spraying is done because this will only give false results.

  • The AntMan will only proceed to inject the insecticide into the chosen areas either by drilling small holes and then sealing the holes, or by using other methods which do not require any drilling, therefore no insecticide is accessible to anyone in the house and odour, if any, is minor.  This treatment is safe for most adults children and pets. Special precautions may be necessary for people with respiratory problems, pregnant women, babies, birds and fish. 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment there should be no more pavement ants in the house and also no ants going in and out of the exterior walls of the house.

This treatment is guaranteed for a period of 18 months with no limit to the amount of visits required within this period. If pavement ants are visible in your home only during the months of July or August, then this means that they are probably coming from an exterior source and in this case, only an exterior spraying on the foundation is necessary.

Pharaoh ants

 

Pharaoh ants most often make their nests in warmer parts of a building where food is close by.

Most common areas where nests are found are in walls, bottom of cardboard containers, (even sealed), that haven’t been moved for 2,3 weeks or more, such as wax paper, aluminum foil, saran wrap, cereal, hot chocolate, shoeboxes, or even between layers of clothes, in video cassettes, computers, radios etc. Pharaoh ants will also nest and feed outdoors during summer, entering and making nests in neighboring houses.

  • The most common sources of new infestations are from infected articles brought home or from an infested apartment or townhouse amongst other apartments or townhouses.

  • Do not allow interior spraying for these ants, strong odors will alert colonies and cause an exodus of queens, resulting eventually in the formation of new colonies.

  • After having inspected the premises and asked a number of questions, The AntMan will determine the areas to be treated. He will give you a precise estimate within a price range given to you previously on the phone and will then proceed to do the work. The AntMan will then proceed to inject an odourless low toxicity powder called octaborate, through small holes, into selected areas where pharaoh ants are travelling. All holes made are sealed.

  • Depending on the infestation, a number of soft bait droplets containing octaborate will be discretely displaced in strategic areas like kitchen and washrooms and others if necessary. These soft bait droplets must remain in place for at least 6 weeks before being removed. The ants feed on the bait while slowly poisoning the whole colony which can sometimes reach up to several million workers and thousands of queens. The powder helps eliminate circulation between residences and apartments. This treatment is safe for most adults, children and animals. Special precautions may be necessary for people with respiratory problems, pregnant women, babies, birds and fish.

  • The complete elimination of a pharaoh ant problem in a given building can take from 6 weeks to 6 months depending on the size of the building, the number of apartments to be treated and degree of infestation.

 

This treatment is guaranteed for a period of 18 months with no limit to the amount of visits required within this period as long as all apartments within a building are treated, and at the same time.

Brown ants

 

The brown ant is very similar to the pavement ant, but more robust measuring 3 to 5 mm.

It will nest most often outside along building foundations but on occasion in house plants or even in walls of homes.

  • They are often seen in a line crawling up fruit trees or home foundations in search of food.

  • After having inspected the premises and asked a number of questions, The AntMan will determine the areas to be treated. He will give you a precise estimate within a price range given to you previously on the phone and will then proceed to do the work.

  • Brown ants generally nest outside, crawling into homes during summer in search of food, therefore only an exterior foundation spray is necessary to eliminate the presence of this ant in your home. This treatment is safe for most adults, children and animals. Special precautions may be necessary for people with respiratory problems, pregnant women, babies, birds and fish.

 

This treatment is guaranteed for a period of 6 months with no limit to the amount of visits required within this period.
