Acrobat Ant Control

Acrobat Ant Elimination

Acrobat Ant Information

Ridding your home of Acrobat ants involves many of the procedures (both chemical and non-chemical) used in eliminating Odorous House Ants, Crazy Ants and Carpenter AntsBaiting for Acrobat ants has limited results.
[If you can only use baits (due to circumstances in your home which prohibit the use of dusts and sprays), Maxforce products will work best.  Maxforce Granules should be used outdoors, Maxforce FC Ant Bait Stations should be used where ants are seen foraging indoors.  For severe indoor infestations, Maxforce FG should be placed in wall voids, attics, etc.; use of a Crusader Duster will make application of these smaller particles to cracks and crevices easier.]

  1. Spray Treatment For best results, make a thorough inspection indoors and outdoors to locate any nests, trails, entry points, hiding places, etc.  All of these areas need to be treated with Cypermethrin to kill existing ants and prevent newer ant colonies from entering the structure.  Cyper WP and Cynoff EC are the most popular products, among insecticides containing Cypermethrin.
    Look for and spray any possible entry point or hiding place.  The Chapin sprayer has an adjustable tip for spraying entry points and baseboards or for slowly drenching ant mounds.
    Areas to be sprayed include any tiny opening where the pests might enter, around or beneath all stepping stones and landscape timbers, the soil around the home, storage sheds, firewood.  Make sure that all mulched areas are thoroughly treated.  Any ornamental shrubs located close to the structure should be treated to eliminate any possible aphids or other insects.  If you have shrubs or other vegetation which needs to be treated for aphids, use Permethrin SFR or Talstar instead of Cypermethrin.  Acrobat ants will feed on insects and are fond of the honeydew produced by aphids.

  2. Dust Treatment:   If you have determined that the ants have established colonies in your walls, it may be necessary to apply Delta Dust to any void where you suspect ant (or other insect activity.)   Use a Crusader Duster for applying Delta Dust to wall voids, cracks and crevices.  For smaller infestations, insecticide dust might not be needed.

In summary, all existing ant trails and nests of the acrobat ant must be located and eliminated.  Without thorough inspection (both indoors and out) and necessary treatment, these pests will continue to "pop up" and continue to be a pest.
