A carpenter ant infestation might appear minor and negligible at first glance, but ignoring the problem could lead to costly property damage and replacement work. Additionally, most DIY methods involve sprays that provide temporary solutions by keeping ants at bay but lack the efficiency in eradicating infestations at the root. As a result, homeowners may waste a great deal of time, money, and effort in a lengthy and frustrating process.
Keep your garbage stored in a covered, rodent-proof container. The scent of food is one of the main attractants…If you have fruit trees in your yard, as many Floridans do, make sure you pick up and remove ripened fruits. Leaving fruits on the ground or in a tree after ripening, can attract rats.
Termites love the bait, even more than wood, and they carry the active ingredient in the bait back to their colony. This causes the termites to lose their ability to molt, stops them in their current life stage, preventing them from laying eggs, thereby decimating the colony in a short while. With Sentricon there is total colony elimination.
If you locate the dead rodent, remove it; seal it in a ziplock or a plastic bag and dispose of securely. You should wear gloves to avoid contamination from bacteria or viruses. Clean the space thoroughly with disinfectants and perfumed detergents. Finally, ventilate the area well to carry away the smell.
