Big and Black? Some Carpenter Ants Characteristics

“Big and black” are the two common most terms home and business owners use to describe Carpenter Ants, especially during the busy spring mating season this year.

Carpenter Ants find there ways around Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton´s forested areas by there heightened sense of sight and sense of smell, chemical tracks (pheromones) and even use visual reference marks. Causing great damage, these pesky riff-raff nibblers create pathways or congregate in similar areas digging galleries in wood, earth, insulation and other building material mostly due to heat provided from structures.  Isn´t that disturbing they congregate in areas that many of us call home or work?

After many years of study it is noticed, when looked at closely Carpenter Ants have hues of red, and brown and can congregate in the 50,000 range.

Carpenter Ants are also found behind bathroom tiles; around tubs, sinks, showers, and dishwashers; under roofing, in attic beams, and under sub-floor insulation; and in hollow spaces such as doors, curtain rods, and wall voids; and are about 1/4″ to 3/4″ in length.

Monster Flea that sucked blood of Jurassic dinosaurs



Fleas are a common Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton Pest Control Critter we deal with.  Usually associated with cats and dogs; spread at pet day cares; from mice, rats and other mammals; or from the microscopic larvae and pupae anywhere food is available, such as in animal fur, or any other forms or organic matter (fences, dead insects, vegetable matter).  It is common for the larvae and pupae, where a large portion of there life is spent, to wait over winter until they hatch when they sense a host is near.  They also avoid sunlight and like sand, cracks and crevices, and bedding.  Using non-toxic methods we can easily remove fleas, there eggs, larvae and pupae if you have a problem.


A few months ago, a major Flea find was discovered near Daohugou (Northeast China), that was a part of the  Middle Jurassic (176-161million years ago) and Lower Cretaceous period further confirming dinosaurs are not the only creepy critter in existence during prehistoric times.  The female fleas were a much larger size than today’s 5mm length, nearly 4x at 20mm while males were 15mm. Nature journal, who published the study shows the pesky vermin were not able to jump, however there remains show they were specially adapted to feed off there prey. Check it out below here:
