Ant Control

 

Perimeter Treatment

Any treatment to the perimeter of the premises is a very effective short-term knockdown aiming to prevent the ants from entering your premises in the first place. It is impossible for us to eradicate the source of the problem under the ground, so we just offer a temporary solution to a bigger problem.

 

Residual Treatment

Combined with a perimeter spray to outside walls we also treat inside by means of a residual spray applied to problem areas. The insecticidal spray treatment leaves a residual of active ingredient behind and this can cause the ants to be stimulated in the process of poisoning. So please do not worry, the ant activity should decrease after about a week.

 

Ant Bait Treatment

We can also apply revolutionary ant bait gels and granules in strategic places inside. These environmentally friendly, non-toxic and odorless ant gels and granules are a food source that is taken by the ants back down into the nests and kills from within. For best results it does need to be re-applied, and follow-up visits are necessary.

 

Garden & Lawn Treatment

Our garden & lawn treatments are also very effective in the short term. As this treatment involves applying a water soluble chemical outside, and we cannot control the weather patterns, unfortunately we can only offer a 3 month service guarantee. Rain washes the chemical away and the UV of the sun also breaks down the active ingredient. Recommended for dry winter months.

    Useful Information If Termite Treatment is Necessary

    Do not panic. There is no need to be alarmed if termite activity is found in your home and treatment is necessary. Termites work slowly and the structure will not be extensively damaged or collapse overnight.

    Take your time to make a sound decision. Do not allow anyone to force you to make quick decisions. If you decide to hire a commercial pest control company, get two or more cost estimates. It is important to request the plan of work revealing sites of termite activity and treatment procedures. Ask for written information on chemical treatment procedures, repair of wood work, warranties, copies of insecticide labels and other pertinent information. Compare bids before making decisions. Ask about liability insurance.

    Beware these situations:

    Someone says that a structure will be treated with a secret chemical formula

    pest control operators with no business address and no listed phone number, and

    operators with no liability insurance.

    Termite Control

    The goal is to establish a continuous insecticide barrier between the termite colony (usually in the soil) and wood in a building. Sometimes there may be a secondary termite colony above the soil (in the roof or other areas with a constant moisture supply) that requires additional treatment. Insecticide barriers may be established during or after building construction. In an existing building, termite treatments may involve any of the following procedures: a) mechanical alterations, and/or b) use of an insecticide to treat the soil, foundation and wood. In most cases, it is beyond the ability of an untrained person to attempt the termite treatment, unless it is a spot treatment or a person has work experience in this area.

    Generally, termite treatment should be performed by professional pest control operators. Termite treatment requires special tools such as hammer drills, sub-slab injectors, rodding devices, engines equipped with pumps, protective equipment, etc.

    Caution

    Do not apply insecticides when soil is frozen or saturated with water. Frozen or saturated soil will not absorb insecticide uniformly.

    Do not let humans and pets touch treated surfaces until surfaces are dry.

    Before using insecticides for termite control, always READ, UNDERSTAND AND FOLLOW all label directions.

    Keep all pesticides in original containers, out of reach of children and away from food, feed and water.

    Do not plant food crops in treated soil.

    Do not allow children and pets to play in treated soil.
