How To Deal With Ants In The Wall Sockets

In my busy route I have very little time to play games with pests. I have a full schedule that needs to be done, the client I’m serving at the moment who wants a thorough service and then there are the insects and pests I’m dealing with. (and they don’t care about any of that)

The challenge of a good route tech is to balance all of this and still be effective, efficient, instill confidence in their customers and GET THE ROUTE DONE. The real test is, can he or she do it quickly with real results and move on to what else the day has to throw at you. Over the years I’ve seen quite a number of situations and almost as if on automatic, I try and diagnose the problem and quickly jump into techniques that have consistently worked time and time again.

Such is the problem with ants living in a wall and going in and out of a wall socket. You could spend all day trying to follow the trail or get lazy and just sprits around for some quick relief but that hardly serves anyone any benefit.

In an earlier video I show you how to Bait & Switch Those Ants and this can be very effective but may require some time to work. In this situation the client wants what they see DEAD and not a treatment that may take days or weeks.

Here I accomplish both.
