Baiting is one of the most effective ant control methods. It involves the application of chemicals on attractive folds to kill ants. The baits are usually sugar-laden fluids containing boric acid that kills ants once they ingest the ingredients.
The bait procedure is a little complicated. It involves a thorough research of food tastes and scents that attract different kinds of ant species (some ants prefer protein while others will happily go for carbohydrates).
The chemicals are designed as slow-working. This means ants will consume the bait and pass it on to other ants before it takes effect.
Low repellent residual
Ants can easily sense environmental toxins. Because of these, conventional insecticides are not completely effective for ant removal as they’ll stay away from the chemical and create another alternative trail around your home. Insecticides with low repellents are more effective.
We use low-repellent insecticide to help you achieve the best results through our expert spray applications.
We recommend this treatment for outdoor use because ants that come in contact with the repellent will easily spread the treatment to their colonies. The ants won’t be able to save the queen or move the nest.
Stealth residuals are formulated for ant removal and control.
They’re hidden, completely invisible to ants and placed indoors where these ants look for shelter and food.
The stealth residual method is much similar to the bait.
The ants pick them up on the tiny hair around the lower parts of their body and ingest them.
They transfer this treatment to other ant colonies.
This method is highly effective and safe for your indoor environment because of its low toxicity.
This treatment mimics sand in gardens, courtyards, and areas with cobblestone.
Containing low or non-repellent insecticides, ant sand allows active ingredient insertion in a Trojan horse approach, which allows ants to forage through the sand.
Because these products are heavier, they won’t be carried away to drains flowing into the sea or rivers. The ant sand method can also make them transferred to the nesting colony.
Getting rid of ants
Although ants in Canada are not dangerous, the nuisance they constitute can be sickening. Ants will leave the comfort of their nests to find food. Once they’re able to find food, they create a scent trail from the nest so others can easily find the food. While bug spray works, it is only a temporal fix. The best approach is to destroy the colony so all of them will go into extinction in your area.
How long does it take for ants to go away after the exterminator?
It takes between 2-3 weeks to destroy an entire ant colony. This is to ensure that the product spreads around the colony on time.
How long does it take to remove an ant infestation?
Dislodging ant infestation can be difficult because they swarm. It requires vigilance and combined treatment but an ant issue can be resolved within 1-2 weeks. Be sure to follow up with preventive measures to keep them from returning.
What Do Exterminators Use To Kill Ants?
Exterminators use boric acids. This chemical is very popular in the extermination world. It slowly and effectively destroys pests.
Why do ants keep coming after the exterminator?
Don’t worry! It’s normal. You should expect to see a few more ants rushing out within the first few days or weeks after extermination. That’s because the treatment is forcing them to come out from their hideout.
