Avoid the primary risks related to ants with Elite Decontamination

Having ants in your building comes with inconveniences and risks for the occupants. These can vary depending on the species and the degree of infestation.

Framework damage

Les fourmis charpentières grugent le bois pour creuser leurs galeries. Elles Carpenter ants eat away at wood to dig their tunnels. They can therefore cause serious structural damages to a house when they arrive in large numbers. In extreme cases, the framework can be weakened and present risks of collapse.

Another reason to take this infestation seriously is the possibility of suing a former owner for hidden defects if nests are found when a property is purchased.

Sanitary risks

All ant species can be disease vectors and carry microorganisms that threaten human health. They are also known to transmit bacteria including salmonella, streptococcus and staphylococcus.

This is why restaurant owners must be extremely vigilant if they suspect ants are in their kitchen or food storage area.
