Ants aren’t just a nuisance. In the home, they can infest food and cause hundreds of dollars worth of losses. Some species are also very aggressive and territorial, and won’t hesitate to bite or sting you. This is why professional ant control and removal services are among the most popular pest services there are.
Many people who have contended with ant infestations have tried standard pest-killing sprays or baits, only to find that the ants don’t stay gone for long. In the case of sprays, this is because the queen ant remains unaffected. She hides in the ant nest at all times and lays eggs there almost continuously. Any ants killed by sprays are thereby replaced, often within days.
Standard baits for ant control and removal fail for a variety of reasons. They may be made to attract the wrong kinds of ants, be too weak to do their job effectively, or never get transferred all the way to the queen. In any of these cases, the bait won’t get rid of the ants.
Cleaning is often recommended as a part of standard pest control, but it is often of little use against ants. This is because ant colonies send out “scouts,” who must examine every area to find out whether or not food is there. These scouts will come into your house no matter how clean it is because they don’t know until they check. The worst part is, they’ll keep on checking continually, so you’ll always see a few. If there’s a spot where you used to drop a lot of food, they’ll check there even more – and if you happen to leave something there again, a team of foragers will soon arrive to get it.
When you hire our ant control and removal services, the first step is to inspect your property. We’ll look for places that attract ants, pathways they can use to enter, active ant trails, and other important features. We will also determine exactly which type of ants you have so that the proper baits can be chosen. This bait will be strong enough to do its job, and will be active long enough to make it all the way to the queen.
Once the queen is dead, the entire ant colony will soon perish. Any other ant colonies that try to make your house their home will suffer the same fate. Since ants typically nest outdoors and walk to get into your residence, we’ll also treat the outside with a combination of non-repellant insecticide and spray. This will greatly deter them from coming in during the time between treatment and colony death.
You will typically see a great reduction in ant numbers right away, but since the full effect is only visible after the queen and all existing worker ants are dead, it can take 2-3 weeks before the ants are completely eradicated.
During this time, it is important to avoid using any store-bought ant killers after ant control and removal services in Franklin, TN and beyond. This is because most common storebought ones have a repellant effect as well as being poisonous. The repellant aspect can keep newly arriving ants away from our professional-grade baits, thereby keeping them away from the colony. In order for our baits to work, the ants must take them. Nothing should be done that will deter this bait-taking activity.
Our baits and non-repellent insecticides are effective for up to three months. After that, you should schedule us to come and apply more for ongoing protection.
