Canada's ant population spans across 100 species (Main pest species for us in Ontario are: pharaoh, pavement, carpenter and acrobat ants), and some of them can cause serious damage to the structure of your property when they take up residence (see our latest article on carpenter ants
also). Once they have established a colony, they can be hard to remove. Knowing the species you are dealing with is the best way to manage and control swarms of ants. In addition to expert knowledge of ant species, GreenLeaf Pest Control technicians know the appearance, nesting habits and behaviour of different types of ants, and that helps us to identify the best control methods to eradicate your little ant swarming problem, as well as carpenter ant infestations.
There are many little ant species, some as small as 1.5 mm in length, and others as big as 4 mm. They nest in decaying wood, cracks in cement and wall voids.
