Prevention is key in Pest Control
Keep the ants from marching in with construction pre-treatment
Carpenter ants aren’t just pests. They can do significant damage to a home or cottage. That’s why it’s a good idea for anyone who’s building or renovating to take steps in advance to keep them at bay. Prevention is key in pest control. That’s a fact!
“People tend to deal with pests on a reactive basis,” says Mark Sampson, owner of Muskoka Pest Control. “They wait until they see ants inside before calling us. By that time, the ants can be well-established in the building. Construction pre-treatment can save so many headaches down the line.” Mark explains that the framing or construction stage provides the perfect opportunity to treat areas of a home or cottage you’ll never have access to again. Licensed technicians focus on the places where ants tend to come in: along sills, headers and by door and window openings. The treatment is designed to penetrate wood up to 2 cm. That way even if some carpenter ants do find their way in, they won’t do any deep damage.
Most people have no idea that pre-treating is even an option. Mark would like to change that. “For a relatively small investment, you can bring peace of mind to a large build or renovation, not to mention adding value,” he says. “If you were shopping for a home or cottage, wouldn’t you prefer one that’s been pre-treated against carpenter ants?”
