Ants are a common pest here in the Phoenix area. In some Valley neighborhoods, underground ant settlements may be older and larger than the housing tracts built on top of them. This means that ant infestation, and re-infestation, may be common—occurring as often as every summer. Ants are able to squeeze into any space and quickly take over your home. When an ant army invades, you need professional pest control services from our team here at KY-KO Pest Prevention.
In this article, we’ll outline the many reasons you should enlist the aid of a pest control professional to help with your ant problem. To schedule pest control services here in the Valley, contact our team online, or give us a call at (480) 964-8900.
Store-bought sprays aren’t going to work
Ants cannot be defeated by store-bought remedies. First, spraying for ants is a relatively ineffective way to deal with them: in most cases, as long as the queen survives deep underground, the ant infestation is nowhere near to over. Pesticides won’t carry that deep into ant tunnels. Even if all the ants on the surface in your home are killed, a new group will rise from deep in the ant burrows to re-infest your home, starting the whole problem all over again.
You need an all-around strategy
The pest technicians at KY-KO can help you craft a winning strategy in your war against the ant invaders. First, we’ll help you figure out how to better deny the ants access to water and food—the two things they’re after in your home. Second, we’ll develop a solution that works for your home to attempt to kill the queen. In many cases, this involves a slow-acting food poison that the ants carry back to the queen deep in the burrows, but then kills her after she eats it. No queen, no more ants.
Finally, we’ll help you block obvious ant pathways into your home, preventing a new queen and more ants from returning for more next summer.
