Preparing for Exterminator
How To Get Rid of Ants
If you use the wrong material or spray them directly, the colony will become stressed. An alarm, in the form of a chemical scent, called a pheromone, will be released. The queens will split apart in a phenomenon known as budding. One queen will take part of the colony and move. Another queen will take the balance of the colony and go the other way. The ants will go away for a short while and then return with a vengeance in multiple areas. I have seen ants infest every room of a property because they had been treated incorrectly. In ant control, a material should be used that the ants cannot detect. The non-repellent material should not be sprayed directly on them. The material must transfer from the ants back to the nest. The Anteater Exterminating, Inc. certified service technician knows how to identify the ant species and determine what material should be applied to maximize results.
Local Ant Control
Outside ants are often a huge nuisance. A combination of baits or conventional treatment methods most often will gain effective control. Once again, proper identification and then appropriate treatment must take place. The Anteater Exterminating, Inc. certified technician is an expert who will eradicate your ant pest problems.
