Best practice guidelines for ant control
- Conduct a thorough inspection to get a full idea of extent of ant trails and possible nesting sites.
- Place baits close to foraging ant workers.
- Correct any conditions which may be contributing to the infestation (e.g. food spillages, honeydew producing insects on plants, accessible food etc.)
- Ensure an adequate volume of bait and/or bait placements relative to infestation or feeding levels.
- Place baits preferably in an area protected by the rain.
- It is recommended to monitor at day 3, 7, 14 and 28 days after treatment. Repeat treatment when infestations are high.
