CARPENTER ANT PEST CONTROL VANCOUVER
Ants – Quietly Building Destruction
When most people think about pests, they think of insects that bite or sting. While some ants do bite, that is not the main reason why they should be dealt with. Carpenter ants move right into the structure of a building and make themselves at home, and they can do so without the human residents knowing that they’re there. Unfortunately, once ants get moved in, they can do a lot of damage. It’s critical to take action at the first sign of an ant infestation.
Most home owners assume that they can scare ants away with store-bought insecticides or traps. Unfortunately, ants are more tenacious than that. Many store-bought pest control products simply change the trajectory of the ant roadways that lead from their nest into the home. The fact is that you cannot handle a carpenter ant infestation by using normal household pest control products. Most store-bought ant killers are actually more dangerous for the family and pets that live in the home, and while they may kill a lot of ants, they don’t remove the source of the problem.
All too often, an ant problem is either ignored because the ants aren’t actually in the interior of the home or the problem is assumed to be dealt with after a bit of spraying. The result is a home that has been structurally compromised by the relentless attack of a quiet but effective threat.
If you think you may have an ant problem in your home, you can save yourself a lot of time and money by asking a pest control company like Gilpins Pest Control to come in and assess the problem. Deal with the problem early, and you’ll avoid expensive repairs later on. Only pest control professionals can truly remove the threat of a carpenter ant population that is determined to get into your home.
