Ants can be a major problem for your home or business. If you are not treating the outside of you home for pests on a regular basis, ants will establish scent trails which will lead into your house. Once these trails are in place, you must use more than just spray (insecticides, pesticides) to stop them from entering. We recommend a three pronged approach: ant baits inside home, yard treatment with either ant baits or insecticides, foundation spray treatment around home.
If you follow these directions, all ant colonies in and around your home will be eliminated.  Dual Choice, Gourmet, Maxforce, Niban and Fluorguard ant baits, Talstar, Demon and Cynoff insecticides are different pest control products mentioned in this article that help with different ant control jobs.  

This article deals with household ant pests.  If you have carpenter ants or wish to prevent carpenter ant infestations, go to our Carpenter Ant article.   Pharaoh ants also demand special attention.  Go to our Pharaoh Ant article for more information.   For other ants, their biology, habits and elimination methods, go to our ANT INDEX.

BAITBAIT INSIDE, ANT BAITS INSIDE, ANT BAITS        

The use of ant bait inside cupboards, closets, window sills, attics, crawl spaces and other foraging places is necessary to control nests inside your home. Dual Choice, Maxforce, Gourmet or Niban FG will all work.  Some are better for certain species (when treating for Pharaoh ants, you must use Maxforce.) We have found excellent control by combining  Dual Choice and Gourmet Ant Bait Gel for indoor ant infestations; Dual Choice is also becoming very popular and is an excellent bait that can be used alone or in conjunction with Gourmet Ant Baits.
Ants will find the bait within a day or two.  After feeding, they bring some back to their nest to feed other members in the colony.  Nurse ants, queens and larvae will all eat and die. This controls nests inside the home.  Once your indoor ant infestation is under control, you may either continue baiting or switch to a periodical spray to help control indoor pests.

Talstar granules should be spread around the entire home. If fire ants are present, drench mounds with an approved insecticide  to quickly eliminate them. Products containing Cypermethrin (Cypermethrin 4 ounce, Cynoff EC, Demon EC)  or Bifenthrin are the best for mound drenching.  An alternative to putting out granular pesticides is the use of an outside bait. Maxforce granular is one of the best. The bait method takes a little longer but works well and poses no hazard to non target species. Bait every 3 months to keep ant populations under control.

**You must treat outside.  Failure to treat outside will result in new ant infestations inside your home, sometimes in only a matter of days.

SPRAY FOUNDATION: CYNOFF, TALSTAR, SUSPEND

Ant problems start because regular pest control is NOT being done.  To prevent ants, spiders, roaches, etc. from entering your home a good residual spray around the foundation and around windows, doors, fireplaces, etc. on the outside of your house is necessary.
This should be done several times a year. 
Some good products to choose from include Cynoff, Talstar and Suspend.   This outside spraying will stop ants from laying new scent trails leading to the inside of your home and prevent a future infestation. **

** Following steps 1 and 2 above will solve your current problem.  If step 3 is not followed, new infestations of ants (as well as roaches, crickets, spiders, scorpions, centipedes, etc.) will re-infest your home.

For biology, identification and pest control suggestions about any particular ant, click on the ant name for details.  If you have concerns about other pests that might invade your home or property, go to the General Pest Index.
