Ants in the kitchen
A few more weeks and the warm spring weather will be waking up the flowers and the trees and all the creatures that crawl. Ants being on of these creatures will often be seen in the kitchens of America looking for a sweet treat to start their summer time routine. The best way to avoid this problem is keeping the kitchen clean and spills wiped up. If a clean kitchen is not working then you have to find a good ant spray. I think putting down a good perimeter spray in the kitchen is most effective for ants because the results are often times faster than placing baits down. Problem is the best ant sprays are not always available to the public. The best ant spray out there is a product called Phantom that is a non-repellent chemical that the ants unknowingly walk over and bring the chemical back to the nest killing off others in a domino effect. This chemical is usually available only to professional pest controllers, but I've seen it for sale on several do it yourself pest control products websites. Reading the label is important when using this product. A good crack and crevice application works best. Incorporate a baiting program and you will have a good one two punch. I think Dupont's Advion ant Bait is best to use.
