Our Ant Control Process
My Home Pest Control is an expert in ant control infestation with decades of experience. We follow a systematic approach to remove ants from your place. Here is how our ant control experts do it:
- If your home has a huge colony of ants living, then we look towards wiping the entire colony itself.
- We start by laying some basic food bait traps. These traps are poisonous in nature. Once an ant sees a food item, it comes inand eats it.
- The poisonous antthen goes back to its colony. We closely follow the ant.
- Once we uncover their colony, we use a strong insecticide to kill the entire colony.
- If there isn’t a huge colony of ants living in your house, we use basic techniques to kill the ants. We spray the insides and outside of your house with a chemical. This forces all the ants to come out. We also sometimes use ant traps to catch the ants alive.
