The Best Ant Control Methods

Posted on by fpadm

When your home is invaded by ants, they can get into everything, especially the food in your kitchen and pantry. These creatures are tiny and extremely determined to get into every nook and cranny. They have likely been in the most unsanitary areas and it’s crucial that you protect your family. Ant control sprays are ineffective because only the ants on the surface get eliminated and the ones inside the nests go unaffected.

The one ant control method that is very effective is baiting; this destroys the ants in the nest. We at Forensic Pest Control are one of the leading companies in the field and provide excellent ant control solutions for residential and commercial properties.  Only the few ants on the surface have to be fed to get rid of all the thousands of ants that reside in the nests that could be in the roofing, within the walls or underground. We use effective pest control products that don’t cause any harm to humans or pets and also provide guarantees for our work.

Ant facts

Here are some facts about ants that will help you identify whether there is an infestation in your home:

  • Black ants prefer to nest in outdoor spaces, under pavers or in ceilings
  • The forager ants are the ones that cause a nuisance in the indoor spaces as they travel long distances in search of food and water.
  • They generally follow very well defined trails from the food source back to the nest; and so if you follow the trail, you will be able to identify where the nest may be.
  • Not only do ants look unpleasant and leave behind a noticeable odour, but also damage the food and make it unfit for human consumption.

Preventive measures

You can prevent black ants from infesting your home by maintaining excellent hygiene in the indoor spaces. Keep all the kitchen counters clean and make sure that all the food crumbs and spills are cleared from the floor as soon as they happen. Keep all food in airtight containers and make sure that no fruits or sweet foods are kept lying around in the kitchen.

Custom ant control plans

If you are considering hiring pest control professionals to set up ant baits on your property, make sure that you don’t disturb these creatures by trying to use store bought insect sprays or any other pest control products as this will only reduce the effectiveness of the treatments that we use. If you have noticed ants in any area of your home, call us without delay. We will send over our experts to your property to inspect the area and carry out the necessary pest control treatment.
