Ants and Ant Control
Our Treatment Process
Surface spray treatments with a residue action of up to 6 weeks will be applied on the inside of your house to create a barrier for ants and to stop them from entering your house from the outside to come inside.
Our employees are well trained and they know exactly what treatment would suite your specific need or problem. We also use a specific granule ant pesticide and this granule is made up of protein which is picked up by the worker ants as they take it to the nest. This food source is then fed to the larvae and the larvae transform this food to a liquid and this is given to the queen. Once the queen dies there is no longer a reproductive system to lay eggs and this is how the nest gets eliminated.
More About Ants
There are more than 8800 species of ants found on our planet. Ants are everywhere and they can be a nuisance around your workplace and home. Ants are social insects living in colonies comprising of one or a few queens. The queen generally stays deep and safe within the nest. Most ants that you see are workers and these are all females. Depending on species, workers may be similar in size, or come in a range of sizes.
There is no actual way of preventing ants from entering your home. Some way of decreasing ant activity around your house or premises is to remove or clean any food source that is lying around like bread crumbs, sugars, flour, maize, syrups, sweets as these are is all attractive nutrients that ants thrive on.
Ants and termites are sometimes mistaken for each other, however they are very different insect groups.
