In order to prevent ants and to treat ant issues you need to learn some tips about them, what products are out there, and how to act.
What are ants and what do I use?
Firstly you must know what type of ant you are dealing with before choosing to address the problem, there are many types in Norway. Unfortunately there are more than 1000 species of ants, and it’s often hard to properly name them. If you want someone with more expertise to handle your ant problem you should call in a licensed pest control specialists. Fortunately in Norway, there are professional pest control services such as SkadedyrHjelp – a pest control network that could help you in pest control professionally, where ever your are located in Norway.
Most people use sprays to kill ants, which does work if it’s a small amount of ants you’d like to combat, not a nest. So if you want to get rid of a nest of ants it is safer to include a baiting system that can destroy ant nests. You can buy ant bait systems from many commercial stores, and there are a lot of brands. An ant bait system is used so that one ant or many will be attracted to the bait and carry it back to their colony.
You can also use contact insecticides to cull the ant infestation, but you should not use it in conjunction with anything else. These usually come in spray form, or granules, aerosols etc.
When attempting to completely get rid of all ants in a colony you must recognize the structure of an ant colony. If you don’t kill the queen ant then you won’t be affecting the rest of the colony too much. You should also destroy the queen’s workers.
Sometimes you can use every method available to kill pests, but none seem to work. In this instance you should probably call SkadedyrHjelp Pest Control.
