Baits didn't work for my pavement ant problem.
Bought this Dia-Earth product that says it has food additives to it and advertised as Ant Dust; it doesn't attract ants at all. Putting some of the powder along the foot of the wall where the ants came out pretty much made the ants find another point of entry instead.
I have decided to get professional help.
1 place I emailed said "For pavement ants our technicians use a mixture of a residual spray and baiting as well, and treat the interior and exterior of the home."
This is similar to another place my mom called.
Is this the proper way of handling the situation? Seems a bit drastic since the majority of the ants are coming from that 1 location. Isn't there a more nontoxic way to do this?
Say for example, as adviced here, couldn't they just use Phantom or Termidor?
Instead, my mom was informed that we'd need to leave the house for 6 hours, and that we'd need to move stuff away from the walls all around the house so that the entire house gets treated.
Are these businessmen tactics are is this an honest way of dealing?
