Ants in Your Pants………


If there is one thing in life I can not stand……well, there is WAY more than one thing….but, seriously, I can’t handle ants!  They are EVERYWHERE all the time.  In the grass, by the pool, on the concrete, in the trees, and sometimes, even in the house!

Ants and wanting ant control is a very common problem all across the country.  There are tons of different species of ants, some include: pavement ants, carpenter ants, odorous house ants, thief ants, fire ants, and pharaoh ants…….just to name a few!  But one of the good thing is, whatever strategy you choose to deal with them, usually will work for all ants. 

One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when dealing with ants is to kill as many as they can “see” as quickly as possible……with their shoe, insect spray….etc.  What you may fail to realize is that there is most likely several hundred to several thousand real close by!  And that will include at least one queen who is laying eggs and doing her best to increase her ant population day by day!  exterminators around me San Tan Valley AZ

So while spraying the line you see across your floor, or out on the concrete may feel productive……you really need to follow them back to their nest, and hit them where it hurts.

So the best solution?  Especially for indoor ant control is to set out ant bait throughout the home.  Ants are drawn to the food that is in the bait, but that food, is really poison.  They will take the food back to their nest to share it with the others.  That really is the only way to get to the nest.  Be careful about where you place the bait traps.  Keep them out of reach for pets and children.  It is toxic and can be harmful if ingested.   exterminators around me San Tan Valley AZ
