No one wants to have to treat their home for pests, but when you do there are a few things that will make the entire process easier for you and more effective.
Bait inside and outside-Having bait inside and outside your house is a great way to ensure that you do not miss any ants.
Use a variety of baits-Each kind of infestation and situation requires a different treatment strategy and if you use multiple baits in various locations on your property, this will guarantee you cover everything necessary to destroy the infestation.
Locate the nest first-If you locate exactly where the nest is in your home you can save yourself a lot of time, effort, and money because you do not have to waste bait on areas that are not going to be effective at treating the problem.
Use a slow treatment method-The best way to kill off the entire colony and prevent yourself from ever having another infestation is to use a bait that does not kill the ant immediately. This allows the ants to take some of the bait back to the colony and kill off the rest of the colony and ultimately the queen. This strategy prevents you from having to worry about a re-infestation.
