Deploying Bait is our preferred approach to exterminating Pavement Ants.
The bait technique to Control, Eradicate, and Exterminate Pavement Ants results in:
Avoidance of broadcast application of Control Agents. Which results in less pollution and general hazard for people and pets.
And less intrusion to the flow of life.
Pavement Ants are attracted to the bait and are likely to be impacted by it.
The Pest is least likely to be going into new areas to spread the infestation.
Pavement Ants would be exterminated having consumed the bait and may also prove to be a source of secondary poisoning for other members.
This technique is cleaner and safer.
Bait has proven to be a fool-proof method of extermination and it comes in Gel or Paste form and is usually deployed inside cracks, gaps and holes particularly near where Pavement Ants are present or forage.
Expected Results And Outcome Of The Treatment:
It may take up to 5 weeks for all the Pavement Ants to come and forage on the bait and then become affected by it. This Bait will prove fatal to Pavement Ants. Most of the Pavement Ants will expire behind the scenes but some may be found dead near our living spaces. A typical cleaning exercise would be sufficient for the final act.
Pavement Ants are among the average to small size of Ants.
Pavement Ant color is dark brown to blackish and they are 2.5 – 4 mm long.
Pavement Ants are called so because they tend to build nests in the gaps present in and under pavement elements such as stones, slabs and other poured pavements. They are often seen moving the dirt and sand out of the space between pavement elements.
Pavement Ants also love the moisture that slopes into and gets trapped in the gaps between the pavement and adjacent concrete foundations of a home. A lot of their activities occur away from human sight – under the pavements, etc.
Their name derives from their tendency to build nests underneath and inside the cracks of sidewalks, driveways and slab foundations. As aggressive colonizers, they often wage war against nearby colonies in the summertime, leaving behind hundreds of small, dark corpses across concrete surfaces in the aftermath of the conflict.
Do not use Diatomaceous Earth or other over the counter insecticide dust formulations as they only deflect the ants into choosing other pathways and do not address the root of the problem.
