Very Simple Approach Yet Effective Considerations of Carpenter Ant Control

Home Improvement,Health,Environment
Fighting off carpenter ants can be either extremely easy or incredibly difficult. The extremity of the situation can determine if it is going to be a simple task or a long and frustrating situation. Carpenter ants typically infest in large numbers. When the infestation begins, it typically takes only twenty to thirty carpenter ants to be a nuisance. Quickly these ants can multiply, so fighting off the problem early on is the ideal thing to do.

The first and most important part of getting rid of carpenter ants is to do a thorough inspection of your property outside. Carpenter ants usually feed on wood. Wood can be anything from a wood porch that has rotted, a door, an old tree stump or a wooden fence.

The standard treatment to carpenter ant control is to apply insecticide into exterior wall voids, completely around the structure, thereby creating a barrier that worker ants must cross to forage outside for food. Wall voids are the spaces between wall studs that are usually filled with insulation, ants use these avenues to enter and exit the structure. Wall void treatments generally require drilling into these spaces and may be beyond the ability of most homeowners.

Perimeter sprays are often used alone or in conjunction with wall void treatments for added protection. Typically, a perimeter treatment involves spraying an insecticide.

Locating the area where the ants are coming from is crucial to getting rid of them. Once you find the nesting area open it up to expose the inner nest. Next, get a large bucket of boiling water mixed with ant killer and completely drench the nesting area. This is going to get rid of the majority of the ants that live on your property.

Another option is to spray aerosol pesticides into the entrance of the nest and place a bait trap at the entrance. A recommended bait trap consists of a mixture of 1 cup of warm water, 1/2 cup of sugar and three tablespoons of boric acid. This sweet mixture can be left in a shallow dish for the ants or soaked up inside of a cotton ball. Boric acid is a mild acid that is used to treat a variety of infestation problems ranging from ants and termites to cockroaches.

A preventative measure you can take to keep the ants from coming back is to then pour boric acid into the hole and into the walls. That way the powder is there to treat them and not laying out all over your flooring.

After treating any carpenter any infestation it is important to fix the problem. If the ants were infesting a rotted area on your porch, you should fix the rotted area by replacing I with a new, fresh piece of wood to eliminate the possibility of the carpenter ants coming back.

It is also highly recommended to switch out any gravel beds you have around the home to containing a white gravel bed instead. White gravel has extreme benefits with drying out an area. This acts as a great barrier to carpenter ants and other pests that prefer a warm, moist environment to live.
