Ant and pest control aim to deter ants and other small bugs or insects from populating and taking over parts of your home. Ants and smaller insects can be challenging to get rid of because they’re quite small in size, breed quickly and in large amounts, and will continue to be attracted to the main food source, as long as it’s present. Ants are usually drawn to sugary food sources and you might find them accumulating in an area in and around your trash bins, your sink, or any other place where you might dispose of food often.
Ants may often appear in bulk and seemingly at random. The easiest way to combat ants and for complete ant removal, especially in the summer time, is to seal off any holes or crevices where the ants can slip through and follow a food source. You’ll notice that ants march in a line when transporting food and you can stop this by closing off the entrance hole, removing the food source, and spraying to deter existing ants from returning. This might also mean that there is a queen ant nearby that the ants are delivering food to, so it’s important that a professional sprays both sides of your home and not just the interiors. This is also known as an ant treatment.
Cockroach removal is done by tracking the cockroaches to their source and removing any nests that they’ve built and the food that they’re after. Traps can also be set up on the floor for cockroaches to catch them en route for food or when they’re in the open space. Cockroaches, like many other indoor pests, thrive in warm and damp conditions, so keeping your home cool and dry will also prevent them from building nests indoors and having a place to carry food back to. Our cockroach treatment and spraying techniques ensure that cockroaches are stopped in their tracks!
Flies, like ants, are also attracted to sugary or rotting food. Flies have a broader attraction to their food sources as they can also linger around items that are decomposing, have meat or flesh of some sort, and are foul-smelling. Flies help break down old or rotting items in the eco-system, so it’s only natural that they’d be attracted to the same kind of food sources, if found indoors. To remove flies and prevent them from laying eggs, it’s important to keep your food items covered or wrapped, if left out, and to implement a system that kills them on the spot, such as sprays or fly trap bags or strips. All of these methods can catch flies when they arrive indoors and before they’re able to lay eggs and produce maggots.
