Pest Files

Although ants are frustrating when they get into your home or when you’re having a picnic, ants do help the environment. They are social insects, which means they live in large colonies or groups. Depending on the species, ant colonies can consist of millions of ants.

There are three kinds of ants in a colony: The queen, the female workers, and males. The queen and the males have wings, while the workers don’t have wings. The queen is the only ant that can lay eggs. The male ant’s job is to mate with future queen ants and they do not live very long afterwards. Once the queen grows to adulthood, she spends the rest of her life laying eggs! Depending on the species, a colony may have one queen or many queens.

Ant colonies also have soldier ants that protect the queen, defend the colony, gather or kill food, and attack enemy colonies in search for food and nesting space. If they defeat another ant colony, they take away eggs of the defeated ant colony. When the eggs hatch, the new ants become the "slave" ants for the colony. Some jobs of the colony include taking care of the eggs and babies, gathering food for the colony and building the anthills or mounds.

Control Methods

In order to detect potential pest issue early, we recommend you have regular inspection at your premises. All of our services are tailored to suit the need of your individual business.

Residual Spray

The 4 or 6 liters sprayer is an important tool for spraying control. A sprayer with a multiple spray nozzles can apply insecticides safely and accurately to the insect harborages.
 

Gel Baiting

Ant Gel can be discreetly applied in hard-to-reach cracks and crevices and away from children and pets. After ants feed on the gel, they return to the colony and transfer the bait to the queen and the others, thereby killing the entire colony.
 

Sanitation

The “bottom line” to long term control is the fact that pest must have adequate food and shelter to live and thrive. The removal of these factors alone via sanitation practices will have tremendous impact in reducing pest population, However to control pest, without any attempt to eliminate their food and shelter via sanitation, pest populations can quickly and repeatedly rebound. Therefore, sanitation is the backbone of a successful or failure of the pest control program.
