Basics of Ant Control
Controlling ants in structures need not be so difficult. To be successful, you must follow a few basic rules:
Identify the species of ant involved. (critical)
Perform a thorough inspection.
Determine where the ant colonies are located.
Treat the ant colonies directly if possible.
Use baits for ant colonies that cannot be treated directly.
It is not always possible to find where the ant colony is located. In this case, bait insecticides placed directly in the path of ants or where ants can find them are very effective and can save a tremendous amount of time.
