For ant identification, biology and how to kill ants of
read about any of the following pest ants.
Fireants and carpenter
ants are easy to recognize for most pest control technicians. Crazy
ants, Ghost ants
and others can be difficult to control if they have not been identified
and treated with the proper products and pest control methods.
Ant control must begin with correctly identifying the particular pest that
has invaded a home, business, school or other building. After
identifying your ant, you can then study pest control methods and which
type of products should be used for safe elimination of ant
colonies. Most people prefer to use an ant
bait when dealing with such infestations. Baiting for ants is
usually considered less intrusive and easier than using ant
sprays, dusts, granules or other contact insecticides. When it
comes to choosing an ant bait, do not let the many different types
(formulations) and brands of ant baits confuse you. For each ant
listed in the index that requires baiting, specific types of ant baits and
brands of bait are discussed. Carpenter
ant baits are designed for a particular species. Extinguish
Fire Ant Bait can be used in pastures where fireants need to be
controlled but where livestock or horses graze.
In many cases, the ant species will dictate which products will
successfully eliminate the pests. When the wrong product is used,
time and money are wasted!
Examples of ant control products for specific
Pharaoh ants should be controlled with a
combination of baits. If sprays are used, the infestation will
actually become worse than before. This is explained in greater
detail in pharaoh
Crazy ants do not always respond to ant
baits. If your ant baits fail and you have identified the pests as
crazy ants, you should change tactics. In this case, a combination
of contact insecticides will be needed.
Carpenter ants can be controlled with contact
insecticides or with special Carpenterant baits. When special baits
are used, the wood ants (as they are sometimes called) will do the work
for you - carrying the tasty food back where it is fed to the entire
carpenter ant colony. Once these pests have been brought under
control, either continuing the baiting program or changing over to a spray
program will prevent carpenterants from re-investing your home. For
an in-depth look at carpenter ant control, read carpenter ant information,
inspecting for carpenter ants and carpenterant control articles.
The above examples are given to encourage correct identification of the
ants in your home or business.
