Ant Control Inspection

This step is key. Many experienced ant control professionals are good at helping identify the ant species over the phone through a series of specific questions, however, an in-person inspection may be required for confirmation. Simply put, how can anyone properly say what ant you have, how big the nest is, where the nest is, the best treatment for your family, etc, without setting foot in your home? Most pest control companies from Metro Vancouver to Whistler will provide a no-cost ant inspection. Solutions Pest Control technicians are trained at ant identification and determining the best ant control treatment that works best for you and your family.

Ant Spraying Control Treatments

Ant Treatments vary far and wide, even from tech to tech within the same company. The key products used are usually one of the following:

Liquid-based insecticides, usually applied from a spray can or aerosol can, that provide fast, effective knockdown and a short residue that will continue to kill ants that contact it for weeks to months after the initial application.

Insecticides in dust form that, properly applied, can provide the longest residual action of any insecticide. Not very effective in high humidity.

Slow acting but very effective, especially when the ant nest is hidden. It works like a Trojan horse where the insecticide is mixed into a food that ants carry back to the nest. Properly used, it eliminates nests completely but is a time-consuming treatment, usually requiring multiple visits.

In many ant treatments, many products can be used depending on the area it’s being applied. Many variables such as ant nest size, location, species, humidity levels, airflow, also exist from ant infestation to ant infestation that can dictate the best product or combination of products to quickly eliminate the ant nest permanently. This is why an in-person ant inspection is highly recommended.

In BC, different pesticides require different, if any, vacating times. If you are applying the ant control products yourself, remember to always read and follow instructions.

Ant Spraying Guarantee and/or Warranty

If you start seeing ants again weeks or months after the treatment, what is your course of action?
It is important to know this in advance. A qualified ant control expert will have no problem providing a guarantee (and honouring it) for their ant work and may even prefer to schedule a follow-up visit a few weeks after the initial service just to make sure the work was thorough and you are happy. Annual warranties and home protection plans are also a popular way of preventing new ant infestations from starting, thereby preventing the trauma caused to your family.
