ants on spoonAnts are one of the trickiest pests to control. You see, an ant is not an ant, is not an ant. Or, in other words… ants are different (different species that is). They nest in different places, they eat different things, they’re active at different times, some are big, some are small, some sting, and some don’t.

Here’s a few you may have heard of: carpenter ants, acrobat ants, odorous house ants, fire ants, and pharaoh ants. Then there’s the more more general terms such as: sweet ants, sugar ants, or piss ants.

It’s takes quite a while to get to know all these little guys and their habits. Some eat baits readily, some don’t. Some are best controlled by treating the whole house, some not so much. Without experience the basic do-it-yourselfer probably won’t be effective with any over-the-counter product or strategy. You may get lucky in picking the right product from the shelf… but the odds aren’t in your favor.
