Frequently Asked Questions About Ant Control
“When will I see results from the treatment?”
Give the treatment three days to begin working. You will see further results over time, but it may take until after the second treatment to get a severe infestation under control.
“How long will the treatment last?”
The treatment will last up to 90 days as long as the treated area does not come into contact with water, is not covered with dirt, or exposed to heavy foot traffic.
“What if I see more Ants?”
After you have given the treatment enough time to be effective, call us if you see further ant activity.
“Will the treatment harm my children or pets?”
You are protecting your household and pets by hiring a licensed pest control company trained in the proper use, application, and disposal of pest control materials. Continue to protect yourself and your family by following these recommendations:
- Spray Treatments: Keep people and pets off of treated surfaces until they
are completely dry. Normal contact with the dry surface should cause negligible exposure to the active
ingredient. Err on the side of caution and wash your hands if you come into contact with the dry, treated surface.
- Granular Treatments: Granules applied to the soil surface are distributed and are too small to be picked out of the surrounding soil. A pet would have to ingest a huge amount of soil in order to be exposed to enough granules to cause concern. Wash your hands if you come into contact with soil treated with granules.
- Gel Baits: Gels are only used in areas inaccessible to people and pets, such as within cracks or crevices, or in
secure, sealed containment systems.
