D. writes,

Why are Pharaoh ants excluded from Alpine WSG label?


Alpine WSG is NOT labeled for pharoah ants because:

  • Baiting is the only effective method for elimination of control of Pharaoh Ants
  • Residual spray treatments are not effective with Pharaoh Ants because they result in the colony budding and contaminate bait stations.
  • Baits must be placed systematically (not randomly) in order to be effective
  • In buildings with severe infestation, total elimination may take up to a year of persistent baiting.
