Ant control can be tricky because, depending on what type of ant that you have, it could determine what treatment method you need to use.
IDENTIFICATION & INSPECTION: 0:39
Knowing what type of ant you have and where it is coming from is important for treatment. Some of the most common ants you may encounter are carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, crazy ants, or fire ants. Identification & inspection often times go hand-in-hand because it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish which type of ant that you have.
When it comes to ant identification, the first thing you will want to do is count its body segments. Note any body characteristics like color and antenna shape. Then note where you are seeing them and their behavior. For example, fire ants are found outside. Or ants inside could be pharaoh ants or little black ants.
Inspect your property by checking around the perimeter of your home or business. Look for ant activity along foundation walls, in mulch areas, and around any entry points. You can check under pots and items in your yard. Inspect the inside by checking around windows, carpet edges, and areas in the kitchen. Find trails easily by watching ants grab food and seeing where they go.
Apply an insect barrier outside with Bifen LP and Reclaim IT. Bifen LP is a granular insecticide that you will spread out over your yard. Using a push or hand spreader, apply Bifen LP to your turf grass and around flower beds.
Follow up with Reclaim IT. This is a liquid insecticide that you can apply over and help water in the Bifen granules. You can also spray this around windows, doors, voids, and around the foundation.
Apply FiPro Aerosol foam inside to all cracks and crevices and entry points. FiPro is a non-repellent and is delivered as a foam to penetrate and fill voids, cracks, and crevices. Also because it is a non-repellent, the ants are sure to come in contact with it. So when they return to the colony they will contaminate the others.
Apply Ant-Trax gel bait where you are seeing activity. Ant-Trax comes in a syringe for easy application and has been tested to be one of the most effective baits available. Apply Ant-Trax in locations where ant activity is common, such as kitchens, near appliances, near baseboards, and entry points. It is important for the bait and feeding ants to be left alone for several days, so that it will effectively control the infestation.
In about 7-10 days, the ant population should be eliminated. If you are seeing stragglers, we will send you a free [flushing aerosol to take care of them. We do not recommend this right off the bat because if you outright kill any worker ants, you will just cause the colony to relocate.
Keep your home clean — sweep up crumbs, vacuum regularly, pick up pet food. Store perishable foods in airtight containers. Seal up any entry points into the structure. Trim vegetation back from the house or building.
If you follow these steps, we guarantee you 100% that you will get rid of ants.
