World has many kinds of ants: carpenter ant, harvester ant, pavement ant, field ant, fire ant, argentine, and more.
We can expand on each one of them but what is important to know about ant control, no matter what type of ant is in your home, is the fact that in order to get rid of ants in the home one must destroy the nest.
Any extermination done will not be effective if the nest is not destroyed. The fact that an ant nest can be at a depth ranging from a few centimeters to several dozens of centimeters below the ground makes it difficult to effectively control ants. It is often that the exterminator cannot identify where the nest is and therefore cannot exterminate and destroy the nest directly. The exterminator can spray the entire house, hoping the nest is located in one of the places that were sprayed.
Usually ant nests are found in the kitchen, shower, bathroom and near doorframes, an exterminator must be sure to spray these areas. Additionally, many exterminators recommend using gel pesticide in addition to the regular pesticides. This is because the gel contains attractants and insecticides which the ants eat and take back with them to the nest, thus destroying the nest effectively and safely.
It is important to note such type of pesticide is more expensive than regular pesticides but more effective, preventing the need for a repeat extermination and all it involves.
