In a world full of chaos, a pest with a name like Crazy Ant seems to fit right in. Crazy ants are tiny and scurry around like, well, crazy. They will eat just about anything from live and dead insects to fruits, plants and your open box of Captain Crunch. One of our techs said that Crazy Ants are his favorite to treat because they present a challenge called, “Find our Nest!”
Usually, Crazy Ants live some distance away from their foraging area where they find food, so the best way to find their nests is to look for the workers carrying food back to their homes. Crazy Ants can be sprayed, but that won’t stop the problem. In order to effectively get rid of them, typically, we use baiting methods. These ants can be a bit picky sometimes and they decide what they like when they like it. While we know what they usually prefer, a particularly resilient infestation may require some trial and error to find the right bait. Once they bring the bait back to the nest, the entire population is destroyed.
If you have ants, give us a call.
We can identify them and bait them until they are gone. As always, we use environmentally-friendly, pet-friendly and toddler-friendly treatments so that the only pests we remove are the ones with six legs.
