Ants: the Number One Nuisance Pest
Ants are social creatures and live in colonies. Where there is one, there is more. Most pesticide sprays results in only a few foraging worker ant deaths, effecting the colony very mildly.
Eliminating ant colonies requires attacking the source. Our products use Transfer Effect Technology, taking advantage of the social aspects of ants including the following behaviors: pheromone trails, grooming, communication, and other contact activity. The technology required to eliminate colonies, must effectively get the pesticide to the colony.
Why Can't I Treat Ants Myself? | DIY Ant Control
DIY CARPENTER ANT CONTROL?
You can mildly treat ants. But most over the counter products will kill the ants before they (a) communicate with other ants or (b) reach the colony. Which only mildly reduced the ant population. To eliminate a colony it will likely require commercial pesticide control.
ANT CONTROL PRODUCTS
Repellent insecticides rarely reach the colony. These types of ant control products are detectable & avoidable by worker ants. Often infected worker ants will die before communicating with other ants and definitely before reaching the colony.
Integrity uses a Genuine Transfer Effect Technology. What does this mean? The colony sends out worker ants, as ants pass through the undetectable treated areas they pick up the insecticide.
This technology allows these infected ants to pass along the pesticide to others and to the colony. This type of ant control allows for the actual control of the colony and exponentially more infected ants.
Ants In Your House?
QP Trained Inspections
Ants are social insects and always searching for food. Because they are looking in your house only means the queen decided to set up camp near your house, it does not mean you necessarily have food sources. Unfortunately, cleanliness is not the cure all for ant problems. As they may just be in proximity to your home. Repellent insecticides don’t do the trick. You will need a relationship with an Ant Exterminator. Call us today to help with carpenter ant control issues.
ANT CONTROL COMPANIES?
We suggest if you do not choose Integrity that you use an ant control company that uses a combination-treatment. Ants can be similar to a virus, they require being controlled in a few directions at the same time. In order to eliminate ant colonies, reduce re-occurrence, and create peace of mind, you’ll need a professional. This type of ant control is not available over the counter or in a DIY pamphlet. Call today to learn more about our carpenter ant control & treatment options.
How Are ANTS Treated?
Ants are treated interior, exterior perimeter, and off-structure. Pesticides are applied (1) one foot up and one foot out of all structures (2) exterior – 18 inch wide bands around windows, doors, vents, pipes, and other openings (3) exterior surfaces or structures where ants can enter and where ant nests are found (4) inside around doors, windows, under sinks, and around pipes (5) off-structure areas such as the yard, nests, or mounds (6) other off-structure areas, where ants are likely to travel.
Our products use Genuine Transfer Effect Technology, which utilizes an undetectable, non-repellent formulation. We won’t need to waste time locating hard to find or hidden colonies, this technology employs the ants and their social behaviors in order to get the pesticide back to the colonies.

How Do You Know If You Need COMMERCIAL ANT Treatment?
Unfortunately, over the counter ant pesticides are repellent based insecticides. If you have a nearby colony, you’ll need more than Ant Control Home Depot Products, you will need a licensed, certified ant exterminator.
Ants cause damage like termites, they are a nuisance, gross, and always crawling all over the place or nesting inside of our homes. Over-the-counter pesticide treatment unfortunately does little to control colonies. You need a licensed pesticide specialist.

Ants are social insects and killing them before they communicate or reach the colony does little toward controlling them. Commercial pesticides, varied control treatment methods, and monitoring are the tricks to ant control.

COMMERCIAL ANT CONTROL PRODUCTS
Termidor (Insecticide) & Alpine WSG (Insecticide). Genuine Transfer Effect technology helps eliminate ant colonies at the source. Alpine WSG is the only commercially approved Transfer effect technology rated for indoor use. This technology allows for the exposed ants to return to the colony and through social interaction unknowingly transfer the insecticide to other ants.
Winged Termite Or Ant?
Ants swarm at the same time of year. Ants can be differentiated by their elbowed antennae, narrowed waist and fore wings that are longer than the hind wings.
Do over-the-counter ant sprays work?
Over-the-counter iinsecticides come in many forms, and may be harmful if directions are not followed. Unfortunately, they usually won’t eliminate the problem. Sprays typically kill on contact and are a deterrent. Because of this no real transfer effect takes place and little is done toward controlling the colony.
Special equipment is often required to reach hidden or out of reach colonies. If a colony or nest is located within your walls, a residential spray will not sufficiently controll the ppulation. Similarly, outdoor colonies can extend far below the surface, which is where most over-the-counter treatments fail to treat.
