The challenge in ant control is getting the product to the colony to achieve 100% control. There are many products that will kill an ant, but many kill the ants to quickly and they never makes it back to deliver the product to the colony. We use the most effective professional products for ant control that works slowly so the workers can take the product to the colony and transfer it around. Within 2-3 weeks the entire colony, including the queen, will be completely eradicated. It is important for the homeowner to cut back any tree limbs or bushes at least 3 feet away from the structure. This will eliminate any alternate accesses the ants could take to travel over the treated barrier around the home.
We at Prime Pest Control offers services to totally control the ants trying to invade your home. Some ants trails are sparse from the outside but inside they have set up satellite colonies inside your home.
