Other types of extermination
This type of ant hill is shaped like a mound, sometimes covered with grass. Some species can build domes up to 40 cm high. These domes are made of earth, twigs, gravel, etc.. They often take a tree trunk as a base. Sometimes, several domes can be linked together. During the cold season, the colony hibernates in depth.
Pavement ants dig the galleries that make up the anthills underground. These galleries lead to numerous chambers that contain the eggs as well as the laying queen.
Some species of ants make anthills in decaying trees, stumps or damp house frames. They make their anthills by binding leaves with silk threads, which are produced by the larvae.
Ants have superhuman strength. Although there are several thousand kinds of ants, they can carry an average of 50 to 100 times their weight!
Ant farm extermination by a certified exterminator
Nova Extermination’s exterminator will first determine the invasive species. He will establish the number of colonies and locate the path(s) used by them. He will then use adapted extermination products that are regulated by the government, so as not to pollute the lawn and your garden as well as the birds or other insects that are useful to your garden.
Our technician will then spray effective insecticides directly on the nests and create obstacles to the movement of the ants (which can be identified by the smell). In order to eliminate a colony, the chemical can be applied directly to the nest. For an extermination of ant hills inside houses or buildings, our exterminator will spray powder or liquid insecticide in the infested area.
To save your garden and prevent ants from moving into your home in winter, it is not enough to kill a few ants. You must eliminate the queen, which is the reproductive arm of the mother colony and other satellite colonies. Baits can be placed near the ant farm so that the workers will bring them back to the queen.
Knowing more about ants will give you the certainty if they are harmful to your home. As an ant exterminator, we recommend that you perform ant extermination as soon as possible.
Here is some additional information that will help you better understand ant hills.
Ants have an incredible sense for building their ant hills. One should never doubt their ability to build their home. The largest ant farm ever discovered, spread over a surface of more than 50m2 and sunk more than 8m deep. It required months of exploration by a team of researchers.
To learn more, researchers have found a way to extract the insides of ant hills from their structures. To do this, they pour molten aluminum in such a way that the metal fills all the cavities and tunnels of the ant farm. Once the aluminum has cooled, all that is required is to dig up the ant nest to remove the sculpture, thus demonstrating the complexity of ant hills.
An anthill cannot live without a queen. When the queen dies, the colony is no longer renewed. Little by little, the workers that make up the colony will die, without the succession of young ants, which will make the anthill disappear. Each year, the queen lays eggs that will give future queens, who will leave the anthill to ensure the continuity of the ants by procreating new ones.
