Ant Control & Extermination Information

There are more than 700 ant species found in Canada and the U.S., although less than a handful of species commonly infest homes. Ants are social insects that typically live in underground colonies, made up of workers and a queen. Ants will eat practically any kind of food, but are especially attracted to sweets. Ant identification is relatively simple due to their three distinct body regions: head, thorax and abdomen, as well as antennae. Despite similar construction, ants vary in overall appearance. Small or large ants and brown or black ants are common nicknames for different species. If you do find signs of an ant infestation in your home or business, contact GreenLeaf Pest Control promptly. We will perform proper ant species identification, and recommend a course of ant control and extermination.

Pharaoh Ants

Pharaoh ants get their name from the mistaken belief that they were one of the plagues of Egypt during the time of Pharaohs. This species is thought to be native to Africa, but is currently found throughout the Unites States and Canada.
