April marks the beginning of the dreaded carpenter ant
season, and this year pest control professionals warm homeowners that it’s about to get uglier. The harsh winter followed by a late spring, on one hand, and the decline in the use of long-lasting chemical insecticides, on the other, may cause a rise in the carpenter ant populations across Canada.
According to news reports, this is the time of year when pest control companies based in Windsor
, Winnipeg, and several other regions start noticing an increase in the number of calls involving carpenter ants. Compared to an average of 20-25 customers per day this time of year, many professionals in these regions are dealing with 50 or more daily. All across the country, pest control professionals are preparing themselves for the high volume of callers asking for help to eliminate the pesky insects.
