Ant Control and Extermination

Ant Control

Ants are common household pests that can invade your home or business, causing damage to property and spreading disease. At AQP Pest Control, we understand how frustrating and stressful an ant infestation can be. That’s why we offer reliable and effective ant control and extermination services to residents and businesses in Fergus, Ontario, Toronto and the surrounding areas.
Over 700 species of ants are found in Canada and the U.S., but only a few species commonly infest homes and businesses. Ants are social insects that live in underground colonies, consisting of workers and a queen. They will eat almost any food but are particularly attracted to sweets. Ant identification is relatively easy due to their three distinct body regions: head, thorax, and abdomen, as well as their antennae.

How to Know You Have an Ant Problem

If you suspect an ant infestation, look for these telltale signs:

  • Visible ant trails: Lines of ants following each other, indicating their path between their nest and a food source.

  • Presence of ant nests: Located outdoors near your foundation, under decks or porches. Inside your home in walls, cracks, or behind appliances.

  • Seeing individual ants: Spotting a single ant might not be a cause for immediate concern. But it’s a good indicator that there could be a larger colony nearby.

  • Sudden increase in ant activity: A significant rise in ant sightings suggests a growing infestation.

  • Discovery of ant waste: Small piles of sawdust-like material (frass) near entry points. Around the nest can indicate carpenter ant activity.

Types of ants

Different ant species require specific approaches for effective treatment. Here’s a closer look at three common types of ants found:

Ant Control and Extermination

Carpenter Ants

These large, black or reddish-brown ants are known for their destructive behavior as they burrow through wood to create nests. Signs of carpenter ant infestation include:

  • The presence of sawdust-like frass near entry points or around the nest.

  • Hollow-sounding wood when tapped.

  • Visible damage to wooden structures.

Our carpenter ant control program involves a combination of:

  • Nest elimination: Locating and eliminating the main nest using various methods, including baiting, spraying, or physical removal.

  • Barrier treatment: Creating a barrier around your property to deter ants from entering.

  • Addressing attractants: Sealing cracks, eliminating moisture sources, and addressing any underlying wood damage to prevent future infestations.


Pavement Ants

These small, black or brown ants typically build nests outside near foundations, sidewalks, or driveways. They are attracted to sweets and crumbs and can become a nuisance indoors. Signs of pavement ant infestation include:

  • Visible trails of ants, often leading outside.

  • Small mounds of soil around the nest entrance.

Our pavement ant control program involves:

  • Nest treatment: Targeting the nest with baits or insecticides to eliminate the queen and the colony.

  • Exterior perimeter treatment: Creating a barrier around your property to prevent ants from entering.

    • Addressing attractants: Sealing cracks and entry points, and maintaining a clean environment to eliminate food sources.


Ant Control and Extermination

Pharaoh Ants

These small, light yellow or brown ants are attracted to sweets and grease. Often build nests indoors near warm, humid areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Signs of pharaoh ant infestation include:

  • Seeing individual ants near food sources or in hidden areas.

  • The presence of small, yellow ant trails.

Our pharaoh ant control program involves:

    • Comprehensive inspection: Identifying the extent of the infestation and locating potential nesting sites.

    • Targeted baiting: Placing baits strategically to eliminate the queen and the entire colony.

    • Sanitation recommendations: Addressing sanitation issues and eliminating potential food and moisture sources.

After wanting to find someone local to take care of our ant issue we called... Abdul and he came 15 mins after calling him! He was so kind, explained everything we needed to do to exterminate them. It was quite bad. He found a nest in our basement and sprayed the basement and second floor. Was very affordable. Told us he would come back if anymore activity. Well they showed up a month later in a window in our dining room. He quickly came over and finished them off. He is very knowledgeable. So if you want someone who will take good care of your pests.. Abdul is the best!read more

We had our property sprayed for mosquitos and flies for a wedding held in our... backyard. Abdul was very accommodating, very thorough, came back on the morning of the event just to make sure everything was good. He spent a lot of time spraying, found the nesting areas and we had amazing results. The evening was very enjoyable and we did not have any problem with mosquitos. Also he sprayed for houseflies and the only ones I found were already dead. I will be calling AQP Pest Control again in the future!read more

I reached out to AQP Pest Control on Sunday morning due to an issue with... squirrels nesting in the soffets of a window of my roof. I heard back from Abdul immediately, and he came for an inspection and to provide a quote. I was very impressed as they were able to do the job that day. Juan came by, and did an excellent job, and was great to deal with. Abdul even came by at the end to check on how everything went. They cleared everything out, and installed a one way door. In two weeks they will return to seal everything off. I could not recommend AQP Pest Control more. Do not hesitate to resch out to them. Thank you!read more

Abdul was professional and friendly! He dispatched the wasps in a timely... efficient manner and insisted that I call if there were any lingering after a couple of days, and he would return to do additional work to ensure that the nest was inactive. It was reassuring to know that all work was guaranteed with no additional fees! The cost was very affordable, I would not hesitate to enlist their services again for any reason!read more

Can't say enough about the excellent service provided by Abdul. We had a very... significant problem with mice infestation . Tried to deal with the infestation by setting bait purchased at local retail outlet but numbers only increased over a 6 month period. Eventually we started seeing them in kitchen and elsewhere. Called AQP Pest Control and Abdul arrived within 2 hours!A thorough inspection of the outside and interior of our house was carried out and the entrance point identified as well as places most frequently visited by the mice in the house. Bait traps were laid out at the heavily trafficked spots and within 2-3 days, we saw no more evidence of the pests. Follow-up visit at 2 week mark confirmed where the bait had been consumed and more bait was inserted into the small locked boxes (not accessible by our dog) that the mice could access. The entrance point from the outside has been plugged.We highly recommend this excellent service - professional, courteous, informative and respectful of our home.5 plus starsread more

Abdul really knows his "pests" and how to control/remove them humanely. When... the critter is caught he insures that the animal is safe and comfortable and treats them with great care. He is devoted to providing the best customer service possible. I was very impressed. And he is a pretty nice guy too!read more

I had a very serious wasp nest developing between the foundation and walls. It... was the long weekend and needed to be dealt with urgently.AQP responded to my call immediately and worked most of the day on the issue. It was wonderful to deal with a local business with amazing customer service and professionalism. Abdul was so knowledgeable and compassionate - since the wasp did some damage to the house . He provided a temporary fix until another contractor could repair the holes permanently .His prices were honest , competitive and reasonable and he guarantees his work. Under the stressful circumstances- it was a pleasure working with him that day. Should you have any issues / I highly recommend AQP!read more
