Pitfalls of Household Ant Control

Ants may seem innocent enough. After all, they are very small and most of them aren’t harmful. Even so, attempting to provide your own household ant control is very risky. We know it can be tempting to be your own ant exterminator in Connecticut, but we promise you, you will want to call in a professional. Here’s a closer look at some of the most common issues we hear about from people who tried to do their own household ant control (but ended up calling us after it was unsuccessful).

DIY Ant Control Could Cost More

The main reason most people attempt their own ant control is because of the cost. At first glance, it seems a lot cheaper to just buy your own products at the store and be done with it. But that is rarely the case. Usually, you have to try several different products, which requires several different trips to the store, and even after all of that effort, you will probably still have to call in a pro. So really, you can save yourself some money by calling a CT ant exterminator from the get go.

Household Ant Control May Not Eliminate the Ants Completely

Did you know that professional ant exterminators in Connecticut have access to insecticides that you simply cannot purchase at your hardware store? It’s true, and it’s the number one reason most DIY ant control methods do not work. They are not as strong as professional ant extermination methods, and most of them are not even proven to be effective.

You May Not Apply the Household Ant Control Correctly

Even if you do get lucky and select the ant control product that happens to work, you still have to apply it correctly to get results. Effective ant control isn’t just about killing the ants you can see—it’s about killing off the entire colony so they can’t come back. A professional CT ant exterminator is trained in how to properly apply insecticides to ensure their effectiveness.

The Ant Control Products You Choose Could Be Harmful

The final issue that may come up is how safe the household ant control is. As a professional ant exterminator in Connecticut, we know exactly which products are safe to use around children and pets and which ones are not. Additionally, we know how to apply the potentially unsafe ones in a way that will not harm your family. Do you really want to take the chance of harming your family when you apply your own ant control?
