In the category of harmful living beings, ants occupy an important place. Although they are small in size, they are able to disturb your tranquility to the highest degree. So when they invade a house, do not hesitate to get rid of them. Many solutions make it possible, but Exterminator in Montreal offers you here the simplest. It is about making a trap to capture these insects.
Different phases to design an ant trap
Making an ant trapis very simple. Here’s how to do it:
- Take a plastic bottle and split it into 2 with scissors;
- Make a homogeneous mixture of jam, water and powdery sugar;
- Pour this mixture into the base section of the plastic bottle while ensuring that it fully covers its bottom;
- Arrange the upper part of the split bottle on the base part so that the neck is directed downwards;
- Put in the neck 3 or 5 ants. They will attract other ants who will seek to join them.
This trap which is very effective must be renewed from time to time. You don’t need to cut another bottle. Just change the mixture.
Eradicating domestic ants: why?
Humans often consider ants to be beneficial insects . The reason is that they are predators of other harmful insects. Unfortunately, when they develop, they become real headaches.
Carpenter antsare especially dangerous for the structure of your home. Indeed, they attack everything that is made of wood in the house. They do not feed on wood. They are limited to digging galleries by rejecting the wood in the form of sawdust to the outside. This type of ants is worse than termites.
So if your house is made of wood or if its frame is made with this material, you may one day find yourself with a house to renovate entirely. In case of invasion, urgent antiparasitic extermination is required. Our specialists are at your disposal.
Pharaoh ants are widespread in Canada. They have the particularity of settling only in the warm indoor places of houses. In addition, these areas are the most inaccessible. These insects have a penchant for moisture. Therefore, you will find them in the back of appliances, slabs, furniture, etc. They are attracted to homes by the following foods:
- sugary substances;
- pies and cakes;
By attacking your food supplies, pharaoh ants make them unfit for consumption. Often to eliminate them, people use chemical substances. Unfortunately, they are ants with a sense that allows them to spot danger and divide themselves into several colonies. A professional intervention is then necessary.
Fire ants are among the most dangerous, because they directly attack humans. They inject an extremely painful venom into their victim’s body. This substance burns like a fire. This is where their name “fire ants” comes from. Certainly, their victims do not die as a result of their bite. However, you will have skin irritations and then blisters full of pus.
