Many ways you can get rid of ants in your house. But here are 3 key ways that help you toprevent ants’ invasion in Cranbrook.
Ant baits are appetizing ingredients, usually sweet, sugary carbohydrates, combined with toxins that are harmful to humans and animals but not to ants. Some ant baits are made mostly of boric acid, a natural ingredient that, when handled properly, is non-toxic to humans.
These baits can take the form of “stations” that are sprayed with a liquid or granular substance. Try to keep it out of the reach of pets and children, close to easily visible ant trails. The bait will work best if you keep other surfaces clean so that there is nothing else tasty that the ants can attract.
Worker ants will bring the insecticidal bait back to the nest, but it may take days or weeks to completely eradicate the colony, depending on how large it is and whether it has many queens, as some ant species do. If the ants vacate the bait station, you’ll need to replace it. Eventually, the infection will end.
