PORTLAND PEST CONTROL | Get rid of Ants

If you are having a problem with ants…especially those pesky little ” sugar ants”. DON’T USE OVER THE COUNTER SPRAYS!

Over the counter sprays are pyrethrin based and are repellant. You may kill a few foragers but a vast majority of these ants stay in the nest.

The pyrethrin residual just cause the remaining ants to create new pheromone trails to find food and water. This stresses the colony making them do something called “budding”.

Budding is when the colony splits up and multiplies.  Now your ant problem is much worse.

If you are going to try and tackle this on your own use only non repellent materials. Baits, boric acid based, even  diatomaceous earth is better than pyrethrins for these ants.
