How We Target Ants
Dealing with an ant problem? Our multi-step approach ensures these pesky critters don't come back.
Got ants? They are pesky and persistent, but the team at Eco Pest is here to help! Our multi-step approach to controlling ants incorporates both exterior and interior treatments for the most effective solution.
For our external treatment, we use a granulated insecticide followed by a liquid insecticide that creates an effective barrier against these formidable critters. This external treatment provides two lines of defence to prevent them from trailing in.
The interior treatment will depend on the severity of the issue. In most cases, our team will apply residual insecticide inside your home. If necessary, they may also bait, flush, or leave a dusting behind cracks and crevices.
In addition to these treatments, the Eco Pest team may suggest some DIY work during their visit. This includes patching up openings in the wall or re-sealing the edges of countertops to prevent further infestation. Check out our recent blog for more tips on how to prepare your home for ant season.
We understand that controlling ants is an ongoing battle, so we always recommend our clients keep to a regular maintenance program to ensure they remain ant-free.
