Expert Ant Treatment
Causes of Ant Infestations
Ants can enter your property through tiny cracks and crevices. They are attracted to food sources such as crumbs, spills, and garbage. Ants can also build nests in your yard or garden and then migrate to your home or office. Other factors that can cause ant infestations include:
- Moisture: Ants are attracted to damp areas, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
- Pests: Ants can be attracted to other pests, such as aphids and mealybugs, that secrete honeydew.
- Weather: Ants are more active during warm weather, and heavy rains can force them to seek shelter indoors.
Professional Ant Control Methods
Professional ant control services can provide effective solutions to eliminate ants from your property. Here are some of the methods used by Bugwise Pest Control:
- Baiting: Ant baits are used to attract ants, which then carry the bait back to their nest. The bait kills the ants and the queen, which ultimately eliminates the entire colony.
- Spraying: Ant control technicians can use sprays to kill ants on contact. However, this method only provides temporary relief as it does not target the nest.
- Dusting: Dusts are used to treat ant nests directly, which can be effective in eliminating the colony.
How To Prevent Ants
Preventing ant infestations is the best way to avoid the need for professional ant control services. Here are some preventive measures you can take:
- Keep your property clean: Ants are attracted to food sources, so keep your place clean and free of food debris.
- Seal entry points: Seal any cracks or crevices that ants can use to enter your property.
- Eliminate moisture: Fix any leaks or damp areas in your property.
- Landscape maintenance: Keep your yard and garden clean and free of debris.
