Professional Ant Control Strategies
When home remedies fail to curb the infestation, it is time to call in the experts. From ants inspection services to ant control services, pest control agencies at Perth cover it all.
The STOP System
The STOP system is a process that covers all the steps in a typical ant pest control operation starting from surveying the area and ending as post-treatment services and proofing. Pest control Perth incorporates this comprehensive, path-breaking system to ensure all steps are carried out effectively and produce the best results. The team also takes care of any damages done to the property during the inspection services. This includes fixing the plumbing, repairing the roof, the doors, and other changes.
Surveying the Area
First and foremost, the pest control team inspects the area and conducts a detailed survey of the property to locate the exact position of the ant nesting zone. Ants usually build the colony outside in the gardens or in the corners of the house, mud trails, sand and a file of ants nearby are the most tell-tale signs that you are near their colony. The pest control team also employs various tracking devices to speed up the process.
Treating the Infestation
Treating the Infestation
Once the team has located the infestation ground, the next step is to treat the breeding ground with chemicals and insecticides that will kill or scare away the pests. Here, the team uses only eco-friendly products. The team also uses high-tech devices that produce ultraviolet rays or ultrasonic waves that scare away the ants without harming the inhabitants of the house. Even the pesticides and chemicals sprayed on the external walls of the house are devoid of any hazardous ingredients that can contaminate the surroundings in any way.
Observing the Results
After the team has completed treating the infestation, they wait back and observe the effects of their pest control techniques. It usually takes a couple of hours for the ants to flee away from their colonies and die almost immediately when in contact with the chemicals. The entire process roughly takes a day or two, depending on the size of the property and the intensity of the problem. We can treat the most extreme of infestation cases and emergency situations within 48 hours.
The last part of the STOP system involves setting up barriers and traps in and around the property so as to ensure that don’t return in the future. Most over-the-counter products and home remedies you apply are short-termed and fail to keep the ants once the effects wear off. However, the solutions offered by pest control Perth are professional and long-term.
