RE: Ants

With the increasing number of questions about ants, we have put together an information sheet for tenants to refer to.

What are ants?
Ants are tiny insects that vary in colour from black, brown or red as well as in size and shape. Ants will travel seeking water, grease and food substances in your unit.

What do I do if I have ants?
Removing access to food and water is the easiest way to avoid pest problems in your unit. If you think you have ants or any other pests, please fill out a work order. We will send a pest control company to inspect your unit. Should it be determined that treatment is necessary we ask that you cooperate and prepare your unit for the treatment plan. Proper prep work is needed to ensure successful results.

How do I prevent ants?
Poor sanitation can cause ant infestations. Leaving dirty dishes in the sink, food residue on countertops, crumbs on the floor, and garbage provide food sources for ants. Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which attracts other ants to follow once they locate the food source, so an infestation can develop quickly.

If you have any questions, please let staff know at 519-759-4150.
