A house without ants is easy!
Gardeners and gardeners have reasonable claims to ants - they not only spread aphids, but also damage the root system of plants (which leads to the death of the latter), and some species feed on flowers and buds. And although disputes about the benefits and dangers of ants in the area do not stop, there is hardly a summer resident who would enjoy such a neighborhood. With house ants, everything is different - here everyone understands that they are pests. What danger ants bring to the house, and how to get rid of them, we will tell in this article.
Ants in the house - what to do?
Those who have seen house or house ants are unlikely to confuse them with their forest counterparts. These small ginger pests are not able to survive in nature. Their place here is next to us. Once in the house (and they can do this by moving from neighbors or moving with some kind of purchase), insects very quickly master in a new place.
The way of life of house ants is similar to garden ants - they form a colony where the uterus, having safely hidden, withdraw their offspring, and working ants are looking for prey. Moving in a chain, pests pave an odorous pathway, along which they easily return. Other worker ants can take advantage of the same trail - this is how the entire colony is relocated to a new "fat" place.
In addition to moral suffering - who will like small parasites scurrying around on shelves with food, the appearance of house ants is fraught with a real danger. In search of food, ants crawl around the house, visiting trash bins, food, and closets with things. Transferring many various bacteria to the paws, pests often become a source of infection.
Dragging food supplies, ants arrange real, invisible to the owners, storage. Such a warehouse often rots or molds, and this is a real threat to human health. Ants regularly clean their nests, taking out garbage and excrement from there, and they can store all this anywhere - both on shelves with groceries, and in linen closets.
Prevention of the appearance of ants in the house
For life, home ants choose "bread" places. That your house does not turn out to be so, sounds corny, but you need to monitor cleanliness:
- do not accumulate garbage;
- Do not leave crumbs on the table, and unwashed dishes in the sink;
- store products in tightly closed containers;
- more often carry out wet cleaning of all rooms.
How to get rid of ants indoors
The fight against house ants must be started as soon as they appear. They themselves will not leave - verified. One might be advised to find an ant nest, but this can take a lot of time. After all, they can settle down anywhere - in products, and in things, and in tools, and sorting out the whole house in search is not an easy task.
To combat all types of house and garden ants, the August company, a recognized leader in the market of ant agents, offers effective modern Ant Anteaters from the eponymous series, which are available in three forms:
- "Anteater Super" granules;
- "Anteater Super" bait;
- "Anteater Super" gel.
"Anteater Super" granules
This tool is based on contact-intestinal action, therefore, it destroys ants when an insect eats bait and when it gets on a pest.
"Anteater Super" granules has a number of significant advantages compared to other drugs of similar action:
- created according to the principle of “epidemic” - ants bring bait to the nest, which causes the death of the entire colony;
- complete death of insects occurs within 2 days;
- the form in the form of granules is convenient to use;
- can be used both in the house and in the garden.
Using "Anteater Super" is very simple: to get rid of house ants, granules are laid out on substrates in the places of movement of insects. If you slightly moisten the granules with water, you will get a paste that can be applied along the thresholds and along the baseboards of the rooms.
"Anteater Super", despite the affordable price, is very economical - 3 g of the drug is enough to process 10 m².
"Anteater Super Bait"
This drug has all the above properties, but is produced in the form of plastic traps with a bait inside. Before using the traps in the room, it is necessary to carry out wet cleaning. Then the containers with the bait need to be laid out in places of congestion or on the paths of ants - on the floor of the kitchen, bathroom, behind the refrigerator, under the sink, near the bin, etc.
Packaging "Anteater Super" bait contains 4 containers - this is enough for a room of 20 m².
Anteater Super gel
Thanks to a convenient tube nose, the drug can be used in hard to reach places. Anteater Super gel has other advantages:
- the applied gel does not dry for a long time, therefore it acts for a long time;
- the composition of the drug includes a dye, so the already treated places are clearly visible;
- easily washed off with a damp cloth.
The tool is very convenient to use - the gel is applied to the substrate and laid out in the habitats of ants. Along the path of insects, the gel is applied with a dashed line in 2 cm increments. As the substrate becomes dirty, they are replaced.
All three forms of Super Anteater can be used both against domestic and garden ants. The instructions for the drug describe in detail how to use for different cases.
Dear readers! We wish you success in pest control and recall that for greater effectiveness, you can combine all three forms of the drug "Anteater Super":
- lay granules on substrates;
- in rooms with pets use traps;
- in hard to reach places apply gel.
Use reliable preparations "Anteater Super" of a series of household chemicals "World without pests" and these insects will cease to be a problem for you.
