Flying ants have been buzzing around Canadian homes for a while, making it hard for us to focus on our backyards, especially during spring and summer time. 

Identifying Signs of Flying Ants

Spotting flying ants in your home can be a disruptive experience, especially if they appear in large numbers. Recognizing the signs of these winged intruders is the first step toward managing an infestation effectively. Here are some of the key indicators that flying ants have made their way into your environment:

  • Winged Ants Indoors: Often mistaken for termites, flying ants inside your home are a clear sign. Unlike termites, flying ants have a more defined waist and their wings differ in size.
  • Swarm Activity: Flying ants are often seen swarming near established nests, especially during mating season. This usually occurs on warm, humid days, often after recent rains.
  • Debris from Chewed Wood: Carpenter ants, a common species of flying ant, leave behind a sawdust-like material from their nesting activities in wood. Finding such debris can indicate their presence.
  • Sighting Near Entry Points: Check around doors, windows, and other cracks in your home. Flying ants may use these as entry points to investigate new places for establishing colonies.

By staying vigilant and noting these signs, you ensure a timely response to flying ant issues. Swift action often prevents larger colonies from forming, which is crucial for maintaining the health and safety of your home environment.

Inspection and Identification

We begin by meticulously inspecting your property to correctly identify the presence of flying ants. Recognizing the species allows us to differentiate them from termites, another prevalent household pest, based on wing structure, body form, and behavior.

This step is crucial for determining the specific species invading your home, be they carpenter ants or another flying ant species.

Once identification is complete, we design a targeted treatment plan tailored to your home's specific needs.

This plan includes selecting the most effective methods and products to eliminate flying ants without disrupting your daily life.

After treatment, we conduct follow-up visits to ensure the extermination was successful and offer long-term prevention advice.
