Our preferred extermination technique for an infestation of Pavement Ants
We would inspect and determine if Bait or Spray is more appropriate in the given situation.
Typically, if the ants inside the property are interested in foods, we would deploy suitable baits. Pavement Ants will find this bait during their foraging activities. Pavement Ants will not only feed on this bait but also carry it back to the nest to feed the Pavement Ants that are devoted to maintaining the colony. Some Pavement Ants may have multiple feeding on the deployed bait as the bait’s lethal characteristics do not become evident immediately upon ingestion.
So in most situation, by about 5 weeks time, most Pavement Ants would have become affected by the hidden poison in the bait. We expect that all Pavement Ants would have expired by now. The bait is usually in the form of a paste or a gel or is granular.
When the Pavement Ants finds the Bait during normal foraging activities and ingests it as desirable food, then Pavement Ants is considered to have had a lethal dose. The Pavement Ants expire after some time having been affected by the presence of the active ingredient of the Bait in the Pavement Ants’s physiology. The Pavement Ants gets sick and dies off. The body debris of dead Pavement Ants acts as secondary source of poisoning for the remainder population of Pavement Ants. Thus the pest’s nesting environment is also turned into a terminal trap.
Our standard service includes a 7 months limited warranty. It may takes between 3 to 5 weeks for entire of the Pavement Ants infestation to die off. If the infestation does not completely die off or if the Pavement Ants infestation revives, then we deliver a second application free of cost. In rare instances where a 3rd application visit is requested within 7 months, it is considered an exceptional situation and a fee of 28% is charged for the service.
