How to Kill Ants in Mississauga?
If you have tried taking a shot at getting rid of ants, you probably already know that it is nothing close to the walk in the park. Many property owners in Mississauga wonder why their ant extermination efforts are futile. The question is not how to kill ants, it is how to get rid of ants ONCE AND FOR ALL.
Yes, you may try a homemade ant killer and try to defeat an ant infestation in your home or business, but unless you destroy the nest itself, you can never rest assured. You may constantly ward off the ant trails with insecticides, but no matter how many hundreds of these buggers you kill, there will still be thousands in the colony, all well and very much alive. Drop a breadcrumb on the floor and see what happens. What are you going to do? Search every inch of the house to find the ant colonies? They could be tens and tens of them.
The battle can be endless if you are not an experienced ant killer. Not to mention that there are numerous different types of ants, each requiring a slightly different extermination treatment and approach. This is why you need the help of a professional ant exterminator in Mississauga, who will use the most natural ant killer available and ant traps placed at strategic locations to wipe out the entire colony(ies). It is the only guaranteed way to overcome ant infestations for good.

Did you Know…?
The majority of ant issues and infestations in Mississauga involve only 4 types of ants:
- Carpenter ants
- Fire ants
- Pavement Ants
- Pharaoh ants
However, other less common ant-human issues involve black ants, sugar ants, and red ants. Although these ants are not common, at Pestend Pest Control Mississauga we still have a lot of experience dealing with all types of ants and we know exactly how to get rid of them effectively and at the lowest price available in Mississauga.
What you need to know about
Carpenter ants range from 3.4m to 13mm long and are usually black, although some may have a yellowish or reddish coloration. You can spot a worker from its large mandible. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. Instead, they remove wood and make piles of the debris outside their nests.
Behaviour & Diet – You can find carpenter ants both indoors and outdoors, decaying wood. They form their nests by cutting galleries into the wood and build passageways so that they are able to move from one section to another. It is an activity that produces lots of wood shavings, which is an indication of where the nest is. Carpenter ants feed on several foods people eat, but they have a particular preference for meats and sweets. Nevertheless, they also feed on other insects as well.
Reproduction & Signs of Ant Infestation – The queen, which lives up to 25 years, lays 9-12 eggs the first year. In about 3 months or less, the eggs complete their life cycle and offer their services to the colony. What most homeowners observe is the swarmers (ants with wings) that are produced when the colony has matured and is about to build new colonies, and workers as they forage for food.
So, if you see these winged insects, you know that you probably have a well-established colony in your property and an army of ants ready to move on to the next colony somewhere else in your home or office. You also know that you have a carpenter ant infestation if you notice sawdust-like debris (dead ants mixed with wood shavings) produced from tunnelling in the wood. And, if you hear rustling sounds, you can be sure that carpenter ants are digging in the home’s wood.
Pavement ants are about 2.5mm-3mm long and nest under sidewalks or in cracks in driveways. You may also see them dwelling in the underside of stones, bricks, logs, patio blocks, under mulching soil, and even indoors (i.e. within walls, inside insulation, under floors). They are light brown or black, and you can distinguish them from their lighter appendages (compared to the rest of their body) and the parallel lines on the thorax and head.
Diet & Behaviour – Pavement ants invade buildings seeking for food. They will feed on a large variety of foods, such as insects (dead and alive), grease, meats, honeydew from aphids, and seeds. Their favourite kind of food though is all everything greasy that people consume.
Pavement ants usually set up trails to from their nests to all sorts of food sources they find and forage for supplies for their colony. Since they come in large groups, they become a significant nuisance when they infest a garden patio or kitchen. It should be noted that they possess the ability to sting and bite, but they are not aggressive most of the times.
Reproduction & Signs of Pavement Ant Infection – Reproduction season is June and July and occurs when winged females and males swarm. The females become the queens of new colonies they start immediately after mating, by laying eggs. Pavement ants go through a complete transformation from the egg, to the larval and pupal stages before reaching maturity. A colony usually has many queens and more than many workers.
The presence of warmers, worker pavement ants, and small piles of excavated materials are solid indicators that you have intruders in your property. It is very difficult to locate the nests of pavement ants so integrated pest management is paramount.
Fire ants are about 1.6mm to 5mm long and are identified by their reddish body coloration that can range from reddish black to reddish brown, as well as their stinger that injects venom to their preys. Could this be the reason they lack predators? Maybe so.
Diet & Behaviour – The fire ants’ nests are in the ground and sometimes appear as mounds of 18cm high and 61cm in diameter. They love sunny and warm conditions, which is why you won’t find them in shady or wet areas. Fire ants are very aggressive, very active and form colonies counting more than 250,000 workers. Don’t be fooled. They will sting if they feel they are threatened.
Fire ants are omnivorous, meaning they feed on both vegetable and animal food sources, and among their delis are sweets, greasy foods, and meats, as well as seeds, earthworms, insects, spiders, honeydew, ticks, and more. That aside, the also eat vertebrates, such as rodents, birds, calves and other dead animals.
Reproduction & Signs of Fire Ant Infection – It takes approx. 30 days for an egg to become an adult fire ant. However, workers can live up to 6 months while queens 2-6 years, laying thousands of eggs annually.
We normally know we have fire ants on a property when there have been complaints about people being stung by ants, when we see swarmer ants and workers, or sandy mounds, especially after a rainfall.
Fire ant stings cause much pain and can even lead to death people allergic to their venom. So, if you are stung by one (or more) and experience a severe reaction such as excessive itching, nausea, and sweating, it is highly recommended you seek emergency medical services immediately.
Pharaoh ants range in size from 1.5 to 2mm for the average worker ant and approximately 4 mm for queen ants. They have a translucent yellow to light brown colour with a darker lower abdomen. This is a very difficult indoor pest to control due to their translucent colouration, small size and large colony populations.
Diet & Behaviour – Pharaoh ants are commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas of the home that are near a water source. They inhabit areas of the home where they can hide from humans such as in wall voids, wall outlets, under appliances and under the carpet or floor, usually near a food source. One colony can divide into several other colonies very quickly, potentially having several thousand members per colony. Pharaoh ants eat a variety of foods, particularly those high in sugar, fats and oils such as cookies, jam, peanut butter and honey.
Reproduction & Signs of Pharaoh Ant Infestation – Unlike most ant species, pharaoh ants mate year round with males that are usually from a different colony to create genetic diversity. There can be several queens per colony, each of which can lay up to 400 eggs after mating. It takes approximately 40-45 days for a freshly laid egg to develop into an adult pharaoh ant.
The most obvious sign of a pharaoh ant infestation is seeing them in your home picking away at food scraps. You can usually find a trail of them that leads back to their colony, typically in a wall void. If you see this you can be sure that there are a lot more hiding somewhere out of site.
For all the reasons mentioned above, it is crucial you contact your local pest control expert to manage ant infestations and secure your property against indoor invasions.

Professional and Helpful
First time user of Pestend services for ants. Salman was excellent. He was professional and helpful. Gave honest opinions, which was greatly appreciated. Would have Salman come back any time I have a problem.
I just wanted to say that our exterminator was excellent! Salman was very professional, polite and took the time to explain everything that he was going to do in our home. He wore protective booties over his boots, so as to not dirty our house with his shoes and I felt extremely comfortable leaving him in our house by himself. He was also very patient with my son (3 years old), who took a liking to him right away. He came back a second time to spray the exterior of our house, as it was raining when he did the interior and he told us not to hesitate to call him if we had any questions or concerns. I would recommend Salmon as an exterminator to any of my family and friends. Thank you for your help getting rid of the carpenter ants.
The gentleman (Fazee) who came had great knowledge and explained everything to me in details. Will recommend your company to other.
Very Nice and Helpful
The crew came in the summer for mice. We didn't see another until recently (4 months later) we saw new droppings. No questions asked, the came back to put more medicine. Salman was very nice and helpful. He showed up on time. We think we found the point of entry this time. Good service, I recommend.
We called Pestend Mississauga to get rid of what we thought was a wasp or hornet net hive. Tony showed up promptly the next day as scheduled and quickly assessed the situation and told us that we actually had honey bees and, because they are an endangered and a protected species, Pestend could not remove them by law. However, he informed us there were bee removal and relocation services that could do it possibly for free (depending on how difficult it was for them to get the entire hive colony). Anyway, Tony was matter of fact, up front and very honest and I certainly recommend them to anyone considering need of a pest control service.
