One pest that is known throughout the entirety of the US is the ant. In the US alone there are close to 1,000 unique kinds of ants. This means that we can’t create one kind of ant control pesticide that kills every kind. Types of ants include fire ants, harvester ants, carpenter ants, raspberry ants, the list seems to never end! Since ant season is here again, these critters are everywhere. In order to make your life a little easier in Knoxville right now, at Bulwark Exterminating we decided to give you a few tips and tricks you can use if ants have infested your home.
Firstly, realize many ant sprays only act as repellents, they can’t really kill ants. Treatments like these will often backfire, causing ants to leave one location to somewhere else close by, typically splitting up, in turn making more colonies.
After learning a little about pesticides, you need to find baits that are formulated exactly for the species of ant you have on your hands. Each ant species is a little bit different, and as mentioned earlier, they require specific treatments.
Lastly, the most efficient and effective thing you can do to rid yourself of ants is by using a professional service. Though you can try lots of DIY and at-home treatments, you can never expect a 100% guarantee they can rid your house of ants. Bulwark Exterminating, however, will do that for you.
