How To Keep Your Home Ant Free In 2 Steps

The common misconception is that having ants in your home means it’s dirty. Ants don’t care if your home is pristine clean or if it was featured in “Hoarders”. These insects are tireless workers; endlessly foraging for food for the colony. 

Hard workers they might be, but ants remain pests and should be eliminated from your home. 

Do Ants Present Dangers To Your Home?

Everyone has probably been bitten or stung by an ant at least once in his/her life. If you got away with just an annoying itch, consider yourself lucky. 

Some people have an allergic reaction to ant bites, particularly from the Fire Ant. The bite of this type of ant carries a venom that could lead to serious health complications – even death – to people who are allergic to it. 

The ant bite can progressively get worse in minutes. From a simple lesion, an allergic reaction to the venom can cause anaphylaxis – a deadly condition that can produce shock. 

Children are most vulnerable to ant bites because their immune systems aren’t fully developed. 

Because they often forage in garbage bins and bathrooms, ants can also transmit life-threatening diseases such as:

  • Salmonella
  • Campylobacter
  • E.Coli
  • Shigella
  • Staphylococcus
  • Clostridium
  • Streptococcus

The Pharaoh Ant is notorious for the last 3 diseases. This type of ant tends to build colonies in hospitals, specifically the burn treatment centers. Pharaoh Ants cannot resist the fluids emanating from burn wounds.

2 Steps To Keeping Your Home Ant-Free

You know we’re eventually going to discuss our ZAPS pesticide products for ants! After all, this is our website. 

But first, even before we discuss ant control, it’s very important to set the conditions for your home to be ant-free. 

Let’s identify the 6 areas where ants forage and what to do about them:

1. Garbage Cans

  • Wash garbage cans with soap and warm water. 
  • Finish off with a pine-scented cleaning solution.
  • Keep garbage cans outdoors.

2. Kitchen Floors and Cabinets

  • Sweep away all food debris on floors and cabinets.
  • Replace paper liners in cabinets.
  • Mop the floor with a disinfectant that cleans such as Rely+On Virkon.

3. Recycling Bins

  • Wash recycling bins with soap and water.
  • Similar to garbage cans, spray and wipe with a pine-scented cleaning solution.
  • Keep recycling bins outdoors.

4. Houseplants

  • Spray houseplants with neem oil or any natural insecticide.
  • Remove dead leaves from the base of the houseplant.
  • Remove any substances on the leaves with 70% isopropyl alcohol.

5. Pantry Shelving Tiers

  • Replace paper liners on the shelving tiers.
  • Wipe the tiers clean with a disinfectant solution. 
  • Spray with a pine-scented cleaner.

6. Pet Bowls

  • Wash pet bowls with soap and warm water after every feeding.
  • Remove pet food debris on the floor. 
  • Properly store pet food bowls.

Make cleaning a daily habit especially in the kitchen and dining areas. Sweep the floors thoroughly and mop afterward with a disinfectant/cleaning solution such as Rely+On Virkon.

Once your home is clean, it’s time to bring out the Big Guns – ZAPS Ant Granule!

What Is ZAPS Ant Granule And Why Is It The Best Solution To Your Ant Problem

We’re 99.99% sure that when you see a trail of ants in your home, your immediate reaction would be to reach out for the insecticide spray and blast the insects to the afterlife. 

You’ll kill the ants alright. What most people don’t know is that spraying ants with insecticide makes the problem worse.

Ant colonies are very structured. Think of an ant colony as a military base where everyone is assigned a specific duty:

  • Queen Ant – To reproduce
  • Winged Ants – To look for foraging grounds, set up colonies, and to mate with the Queen Ant.
  • Soldier Ants – To forage and bring food to the colony.

For colonies, its strength lies in its numbers. The more ants, the better the chances for survival. 

Thus, if Queen Ant notices that the numbers of the colony have greatly dwindled after you did a Rambo on the soldier ants, she will lay eggs.

As many as 3,500 eggs per day will become adult ants in 8 to 10 weeks!

ZAPS Ant Granule is formulated with Hydramethylnon 1%  – a slow killing poison. When an ant eats a granule, it won’t die right away. 

First, the poison will attack the Central  Nervous System (CNS) and paralyze the ant. Within 2-3 days, the ant will die. 

Now, imagine if thousands of ants ate the granules. They won’t die immediately. Paralysis will set in first before eventual death. The colony’s numbers will not greatly decline and the Queen Ant will not be enticed to reproduce more ants.

Within the week, the colony will be wiped out – including the Queen Ant. 

How To Use ZAPS Ant Granule

ZAPS Ant Granule is very easy to use:

  • Identify the foraging areas and the location of the ant colony.
  • Open a blister pack of ZAPS Ant Granule and place it near the foraging area. 
  • Allow the ants 2 days to bring the granules back to the colony. At this point, you’ll see more ants in the area. DO NOT SPRAY! 
  • Observe the number of ants over the next few days. 

If the number of ants has dwindled or if you don’t see an ant at all, don’t get complacent. Leave 1 opened blister pack in the area. 

Conclusion

We admire hard workers except for ants. If you see them in your home, don’t ignore their presence. They won’t go away. You have to eliminate them.

ZAPS Ant Granule is the best solution to your ant problem. Its slow-killing formula will assure you that the colony will no longer increase in number. There’s no need to spray insecticides that are harmful to people as well.  

Using ZAPS Ant Granule is a no-frills way of getting rid of ants. Just open a blister pack and place it near the foraging area.
