Quick Ant Removal

What do you do when ants are literally running all over the floor? Do you grab your Raid, foggers or just pick em off one by one with your pin stream setting on your sprayer? None of theses are really that great because they’ll either stain, be slick, cause you to leave the premises or all 3.

At times ants will break from their traditional marching in line and scatter all across an interior room. Fire ants are well known for coming into bedrooms and scouring the floors and other places enticed by colognes, left out snacks but the worst is the babies room where formula or milk has been discovered by the ant because they really go nuts and the little one is often bitten. At times like these you really need a quick fix that is powerful but won’t create all the mess.

One product I like to use has been tested on all sorts of surfaces and is made to cover large areas such as carpets and flooring. You get an instant knockdown and an added bonus is the long term residual that will keep them from coming back. With ants we all know that getting to the nest and eliminating the queen is the best over all strategy but when you’re in need of fast help this simple tip can really come in handy.

  • Great video! I also heard that if you draw a line with chalk near your home, it will keep small ants away from the home. The ants do not like small particles on them so it may work! It will not work for larger ants, however.

    All tile, the ants were just running rough shod all over the place. I do find fire ants quite a bit in fully carpeted rooms especially in toddlers or babies rooms and that’s when it gets serious.
