As the majority of ant species prefer sunny climates, our climate is very suitable for many of them. The few species found here can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside, so you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel in a wide range searching for food, following trails they have established and clustering around the source of food, becoming a nuisance in homes, organisations and businesses. Small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.
We employ the best approaches to Ants control in Al Rajul Al Hur Pest Control which are environment- friendly in nature. We use the variety of methods to eradicate the Ants problem from your spaces forever.
Ants Control Methods
Granular Ant Bait Traps
These baits are formulated to be most effective against those ants whose diet consists mainly of protein such as meat and other savory foods. Because they are meant to be kept dry to be most effective, it is vitally important to make sure that you have them encased in some kind of ant trap, or ant bait station, in order to protect them from the elements and to ensure that the ants will find and eat the bait. This is of particular importance when you are trying to eliminate an infestation of ants outside your home, as even a bit of rain can render dry or granular baits much less effective.
Gel or Liquid Ant Bait Traps
These baits are intended to battle those ants that subsist on a diet of sweets. They are usually formulated with a sugary and sticky consistency, and because of this are not as susceptible to the ravages of weather. However, it is still a good idea to use bait stations in combination with these products, to give an extra layer of protection and to make sure that the Ants will continue to return to the bait until it has all been eaten. In addition, a bait station can be a great idea if you want to dispense a portioned amount of bait over time, in order to provide control that isn’t tied to a one time application.
Total reliance on insecticide applications in and around the house often results in failure to produce long-term control results. Constant effort must be made to eliminate and dry out potential Ants breeding sites. At times, insecticides may be helpful in reducing heavy nuisance Ants populations.Treat outdoor surfaces where Ants rest, especially around doors, windows, screens, gables, garbage cans and trash piles with a residual spray , labelled insecticide.There are many insecticide formulations labelled for Ants control.Remember, before using any insecticide, always read and follow label directions and safety precautions (the label is the law).
