Ant Killer

How to keep insects away from your home the safe and easy way?

Ants can be a particular nuisance when they get into your home. While Garden or Black ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel widely searching for food, and become a nuisance in homes, organisations and businesses. Small piles of earth around holes in the soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.

Here are 5 steps to send ants packing:

  1. Don't feed them! Keep food off the bench tops. Food left out encourages them to come inside. Clear up any sticky residues on worktops as ants are attracted to sweet things.

  2. Don't let them in. Look for any cracks or crevices around the kitchen and seal these to prevent easy access points. Spray all the avenues by which insects can access your home: doorways, windows, air ventilation covers etc. Ecomist Sniper is a residual spray for interior or protected outdoor areas. The dried spray acts as an invisible barrier to crawling insects and lasts for up to 3 months. It kills crawling insects when they come into contact with it. Sniper can also be used to spray directly on to insects for a fast knockdown effect.

  3. Establish an ongoing protection. Use an insect killer, that eliminates insects. And that means: flushes insects out of their hiding places, repels and kills them. The insect killer should provide the 24 hour protection and be safe to use around people, food and pets. Ecomist developed the original automatic insect control concept that has been proven time and again in the most demanding environments. It eliminates flying and crawling insects in indoor and semi-enclosed outdoor areas. The Ecomist Natural Insect Killer uses natural pyrethrins derived from the Chrysanthemum Daisy, sourced from Tasmania and East Africa and manufactured in New Zealand.

  4. Watch for the nests. If you have a large colony of ants in your garden, consider getting rid of the nests through either DIY solutions or pest control services. If ants are settled inside your house consider using Insect Grenade (a single application product for fast and effective relief from insect invasions) 

  5. Get a consultation. If you are unsure how to treat your ant problem contact your local Ecomist Franchisee at 1800 243 500
