Before you begin putting poison baits in your yard, it is important that you properly catalogue where ants are on your property. A common mistake for many is that they treat one location, say under a tree or by the driveway, and not the entire yard. Even this can be ineffective if the heart of the ant colony is off of your property. It is a good idea to speak with ant control professional so the full scope of the problem can be properly diagnosed.
If you have a large ant mound being built on your property, you may want to attack that one location before you move on to treating your entire yard. Remember, however, that treating a single mound will not rid your yard of ants, but it can lessen the problem. Generally, a single mound treatment will work faster than a full yard treatment, but it should not be seen as a final step. If you are not sure of the proper procedure for treating a large ant mound, you should contact an ant pest control company for assistance.
When it comes to a full, broadcast insecticide treatment for your lawn, you have several options. The most common is a liquid that is mixed with water and then sprayed very carefully over your entire property. The other option you have is to use a granular substance which you place evenly over your lawn like you were planting grass seed. While both kinds work but you should double check with an ant pest control company such as Hopper Environmental Services to verify that you are using the most effective option available.
You can take on an ant problem on your own, but for the most effective and fastest results it is best to contact the broad knowledge base a local pest and ant control company. They have all of the best tools available to rid your home of ants and other pests once and for all.
