Ant Bait Stations (Ant Traps)
Ant Traps Ensure the Bait is TakenAnt traps provide one of the most effective ways of dealing with an ant problem. Here at Do My Own Pest Control, we carry the best ant traps available so you can confidently get rid of Ants in and around your home.
Finding ant traps that work is as simple as finding the right kind of bait. When thinking about which kind of bait to use, and what products might be needed to make sure they are properly applied to do the most good, it pays to know the difference between the two major types of ant bait that are available to use with our ant bait stations.
1. Granular Ant Bait TrapsThese baits are formulated to be most effective against those ants whose diet consists mainly of protein such as meat and other savory foods. Because they are meant to be kept dry to be most effective, it is vitally important to make sure that you have them encased in some kind of ant trap, or ant bait station, in order to protect them from the elements and to ensure that the ants will find and eat the bait. This is of particular importance when you are trying to eliminate an infestation of ants outside your home, as even a bit of rain can render dry or granular baits much less effective.
You can either use the Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, or the Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait.
2. Gel or Liquid Ant Bait TrapsThese baits are intended to battle those ants that subsist on a diet of sweets. They are usually formulated with a sugary and sticky consistency, and because of this are not as susceptible to the ravages of weather. However, it is still a good idea to use bait stations in combination with these products, to give an extra layer of protection and to make sure that the Ants will continue to return to the bait until it has all been eaten. In addition, a bait station can be a great idea if you want to dispense a portioned amount of bait over time, in order to provide control that isn’t tied to a one time application.
You can either use the Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait, or the Advance Liquid Bait with our Ant traps.
Some Helpful Tips On Using Ant Bait Stations (Ant Traps)• It always helps to make sure that any area where you are trying to get rid of Ants has been thoroughly cleaned and any trash has been disposed of. If there are even traces of food, Ants will definitely find that and be drawn to it. This can make your eradication efforts much more difficult in the long run so it pays to include cleanliness in your program of ant killing.
• Make sure that you have enough bait for the job, even if you have the best ant bait in the world, you won’t be doing much with it if it is improperly applied or applied too conservatively. This is one case where less is not always more, and applying extra bait will not do any harm in the long run.
