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:
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.
- PRO TIP:
- 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.
