Many pest control companies will tell you that their general pest treatment will also treat ants. Unfortunately this is not entirely true. A General Pest Treatment will keep ants at bay for a very short period of time inside your home but will not truly cover the outside of your home at all. Ants will simply close off their nest entry points and reopen them somewhere else.
When you are having an issue with the ants we will determine if you require an internal or external ant treatment, or both which is recommended. Internally, we use a low toxic ant bait which will be placed in areas where you are seeing ants. The ants will carry the insecticide back to the nest which will kill the queen, wiping out the whole colony. Externally we will spray around the perimeter of the house. It is common to continue to see ants up to 3 weeks after treatment but if ants appeared scattered or dying our treatment is working.
We are unable to offer a warranty on ants externally due to the nature of their behavior but we will do our best to get rid of them! And our track record is great! Prior to our arrival you do not need to do anything.
So many questions! Important information.
