Pecopp Ant Control Treatment
PECOPP’s ant pest control
PECOPP provides the best ant pest control service through a quick, safe, effective, and stress-free solution. We rely on an advanced odorless gel-bait application or a reliable pesticide emulsion spray for ant control at your home.
Our Spray based ant management solution
As the ants you find at your home may be foragers, effective spray treatment of ants relies on locating and treating an ant colony. Unfortunately, spraying pesticides against foragers is ineffective as the colony replaces the ants we kill with other members from the ant nest to which the ones we killed belong.
For sustained results in an ant control program at your home, we look for and treat an ant nest, as only damaging the nest and spraying pesticides on it can destroy the entire colony.
As illustrated here, our ant pest control uses a thoughtful approach to tackling them by targeting their colony, which keeps adding members to replenish any that it loses, resulting in ant control.
Our gel-based ant pest control solution
We also use gel bait against ants for heavy ant infestation. Ants commonly found infesting homes consume the syrupy ant gel containing Imidacloprid 0.03% pesticide.
How does our ant-gel control an ant infestation for effective ant pest control?
The ant-gel is a pesticide bait that attracts worker ants to consume it and temporarily store it in their bodies before returning to their nest. Back at their colony, worker ants regurgitate the food bait for consumption by all individuals of the colony. Ant-gel causes ‘colony elimination’ as the worker ants who bring the bait from outside the nest share it with all colony members.
The ant-gel we use has excellent efficacy against multiple-ant species and is very specific against ants. Furthermore, our treatment is inconspicuous, as our ant-gel is a transparent, viscous, syrupy liquid. Therefore, we take minimal time to apply ant-gel, which has long-lasting palatability to ants. Also, a very low dose suffices to eliminate an ant infestation quickly.
What can you do to prevent ants at your home during our ant pest control?
You can minimize the occurrence of ants at your home by simple measures we have listed below and help in our ant pest control treatment’s efficacy:
Troubles ants can cause in your home!
As ants can become a big problem at home and contaminate food, homeowners must rely on effective ant pest control to keep ants at bay. Bacteria on ants spread when ants crawl in pantries and across countertops.
Though only a few ant species transmit diseases, finding any type of ant in food or elsewhere inside your home is an unpleasant experience and a nuisance for you.
Few ant species, like carpenter and fire ants, cause damage by tunneling through wooden beams. However, fire-ant sting contains venom, causes pain, and may cause allergic reactions in hypersensitive people.
In addition, ants form visually discomforting colonies near wooden frames or cracks and crevices in commercial areas of business premises.
Hence, businesses must rely on ant pest control to protect their employees and properties.
Let’s dive into more facts and trivia about ants!
Ants have been on earth since dinosaurs and have successfully navigated extinction. Ants descend from wasps and are more than thirteen thousand species worldwide. Ants are ubiquitous everywhere except in Antarctica, high Arctic zones, and a few islands.
Being tiny creatures with proportionate-sized brains, ants are highly successful masters of cooperation.
Ants colonies are groups of many ants with a king, a queen, and workers. Workers are wingless female ants that gather food, feed larvae, and care for the nest by maintaining and guarding it.
Some ant colonies possess single queens, whereas others may have multiple queens in one colony. Colony sizes of ants vary across species, but one ant colony can even have a million ants in it!
1. How do ants communicate?
As eusocial insects, ants live in groups, caring for each other and communicating by releasing pheromones or chemical cues for aggregation and locating food.
2. India and Ants
India is home to 800 species of ants including black ant (Monomorium minimum), fire ant (Solenopsisinvicta), crazy ants (Paratrechinalongicornis), carpenter ant (Camponotuscompressus), pharaoh’s ant (Monomorium pharaonis), and argentine ant (Linepithemaspp).
In nature, ants are important as decomposers. Still, when they invade your kitchen, home, or business, they are unpleasant, making you seek ant pest control from a reputed pest control agency. As we practice during our ant pest control treatment, the key to eliminating ants is understanding their behavior to prevent and control an ant infestation.
We often find ants in and around our kitchen because ants love to eat what humans eat!
