Pest Control for Ants

By : Rita Stadler

Ant problems go from mild to severe in the blink of an eye.  Because ants live, work, and travel in groups, you don’t usually realize you have an ant problem until it has already become a large-scale infestation.

Traps as Pest Control for Ants

Traps are commonly used for pest control, but they are not effective against the large numbers ants tend to carry.  Traps are not generally effective pest control anyway since they only address the pest that is caught, and not the deeper rooted infestation.

Poison as Pest Control for Ants

Poisons are a popular form of pest control.  Killing ants can make you feel like you are solving your infestation, but it is difficult to kill the root of the problem.  Ants have a sophisticated social structure centered upon a queen, who lays all of the eggs and is responsible for breeding and propagating the colony.  The queen is well protected deep within a nest.  Poisons may kill countless foragers and drones, but the queen will continue to lay eggs and the ants will continue to come.

Natural Deterrent for Pest Control

Deterrents stop infestations before they begin.  Using a natural deterrent to control ant problems is not only more effective, but it is safe for people and pets.

When you use a deterrent, foraging ants will not find the area to be a good place to make their nest so you will not have to struggle to evict ants after they have set up a colony.  It is always easier to keep pests away from the beginning rather than trying to get rid of pests that have set up residence in or near your home.
