Most of the ants control services we have done are after home and property owners have tried do it yourself ant control (DIY) treatments because it is less expensive, but over the counter products are not as strong or effective as professional grade products. They might kill the ants you can see, but they won’t get rid of the colony. Eventually, the ants will return. Some over the counter products actually make the problem worse, causing surviving ants to break off and form new colonies.
Due to numerous ant products DIY extermination can become expensive because of the fact that different types of ants require different treatments. Odorous ants, for example, can only be controlled by the use of baits. Other products or chemicals will cause the colony to split into multiple ant nests, making the problem even worse. A professional exterminator will know exactly how to eradicate the species of ant infesting your home.
