One Ant Means There Are More
Ants are little creatures, amounting to a huge problem. The old saying is, “if you see one ant, there are hundreds more you’re not seeing.” This is because ants deploy scouts and workers. You won’t ever see the majority of a colony—just a few here and there. A complete ant inspection in Central Illinois will turn up what you’re missing: A colony of thousands that’s getting bigger by the day.
Ant Treatment and Control
Our approach to ant treatment in Central Illinois is all about eradicating the entire colony—not just the ants you can see or the nest you’re able to find!
We rely on specialized insecticides called “non-repellents.” They’re highly effective for social colonies like ants and are designed to be undetectable. The ants are attracted to these small pellets and pick them up as if they were food, bringing them to the queen. These insecticides go to work, killing the queen and crippling the colony, eliminating the nest.
The best part about non-repellants is that they stop ants from releasing warning pheromones to reposition the nest. This stops the problem from moving from one area to the other!
