Our Ant Exterminating Process
The most effective method of exterminating ants from your home or business is by placing insecticide baits in strategic areas. The ants will carry these baits back to their nests to be consumed by the colony. The type of bait we use will be determined by our expert team of ant exterminators upon inspection. Typically the baits we employ will be in powder or liquid form.
