These ant packages provide complete treatments for an ant infestation wherever it may be from indoors in a kitchen or conservatory through to patio and decking areas.
Protector C spray is designed for use indoors to be sprayed on windowsills, floors and close to entrances and exits. The spray can also be used outdoors but we recommend only when rain is not due as rain will effect the efficacy of the product. This ant killer spray contains Cypermethrin and will stay active for up to 8 weeks. Spray areas where ants have been seen including ant runs. Ants will always travel in straight lines so once a run has been identified, spray along the run and any ant in the area will ingest the spray and die. Spraying windowsills and floors effectively creates a barrier where ants will be killed if they enter the area allowing you to reduce and eventually reduce the infestation.
Residex P Powder is a general use powder that is particularly effective against ants. The ants will carry the powder back to the nest making it ideal for indoor or use outside depending on where the infestation is. Supplied in a puffer pack for easy disbursement, the powder is recommended for use between crevices where ants may be gaining access to your property. This could be between brickwork and the floor outside the home, through to along skirting areas inside the property. The powder can also be used on carpets and hard floors. We recommend keeping children and pets away from the treated area.
Maxforce LN Ant Bait Stations are highly recommend for use across the home or garden. The bait station contains a poison that the ants are attracted to and then take this poison back to the nest. This results in the eradication of the ant infestation. Simply place the bait stations down on to identified ant runs/paths and where ant activity has been seen. Open the bait station and leave them. Ants may climb over and around the bait station but eventually they will enter the unit and start the process for removing ants.
Frequently asked questions
Ant behaviour helps us put together a successful and trusted method of removing an ant infestation. Ants operate in colonies and their colony size can range from relatively small colonies with one queen through to millions of ants across large swathes of land. Ants have become highly sophisticated through millions of years of evolution with different members of the colony able to transform and adjust their role within the colony according to their age. Ants will always follow the same path once it has been established, placing pest control measures on this path leads to a much higher success rate.
The queen is not necessaily a matriarch in the traditional sense, she poses little control over the other ants, however, she constantly produces eggs, building the strength of the colony.
With that in mind, if an ant infestation is causing you problems in a kitchen, bathroom or patio area the quickest way to eliminate the infestation is to kill the queen ant.
Maxforce ant bait stations are a popular way of dealing with an ant problem either in the house or outside. Simply place the bait stations near to the nest and on the ant runs, and open the little sliders to make the insecticide accessible to the ant colony. The bait stations contain Imidacloprid which is a neurotoxin that affects the central nervous system of the ants in question. The systemic action causes a blockage in the neuronal pathway leading to the death of the ant.
Bait stations are commonly used in kitchens where you may not want to risk the contamination of food stuffs with a powder.
Ant Powder is perhaps the most popular and traditional way of removing ants. Place the powder on areas the ants have been seen, alongside skirting areas, on their runs and on nearby areas. Residex P Dusting Powder contains 0.5% Permethrin that similarly to the above also affects the neuronal pathways of the ants leading to their death.
For areas such as conservatories and areas where the look of a room is important, we would recommend the use of Protector C ant spray. Once dry the spray on a carpet or hard surface will provide an unseen barrier protecting that area for up to three months, without causing damage and enables you to allow pets back into the room once the area is dry.
