There are a variety of insect pests in British Columbia. Residents of Burnaby may find themselves coping with some of these pests at home and also at work. Ants are common and many species live in gardens and yards. Some ant species, such as carpenter ants and moisture ants, move into homes. They seek out areas where they can find water. If there is damp or decaying wood, the ants excavate galleries in the wood to make their nests. These pests sometimes cause serious damage before the homeowners discover them. Other ants, like the tiny pharaoh ants and thief ants, can invade homes and commercial buildings. Once inside, these pests make nests in wall voids and under baseboards. They are often seen near water sources, like sinks and drains. Once these pests become established in a kitchen or break room, they can be very difficult to eliminate.
