Knowing how to get rid of pharaoh ants is important as they are one of the most difficult pests to control.
However, following the correct procedure and using effective products you can certainly control these ants.
Many of our customers have seen positive results just by following the 3 simple steps below!
Step 1: Identify the ant trails
Firstly, it is important to identify the ant trails as this will result in more accurate bait placement and better results.
You can identify ant trails by observing areas where you think there is high activity as the worker ants will form a visible path to the selected food source.
Step 2: Place the bait
The next step is to begin baiting along the already identified ant trails and areas of high activity. We recommend using a protein based bait such as Biopren Pharaoh Ant Killer as this will increase your chances of eliminating the whole colony.
How To use Biopren Pharaoh Ant Killer
- Grab your desired amount of sachets (this will vary depending on the size of the infestation)
- Simply snip the top of the sachet using a pair of scissors, this will allow the pharaoh ants to enter the sachet and consume the bait.
- Place the opened sachet along the ant trails and high activity areas and allow sufficient time for it to be consumed.
Step 3: Replenish the bait
Pharaoh ants are persistent and it is important to frequently monitor your baited areas and replenish bait where necessary. To replenish the bait simply follow the process in step 2.
Extra Tip: Switch the bait
You may suddenly notice that the bait you are placing is no longer being consumed. Don’t be alarmed, this is common amongst pharaoh ants as they are known to get bored of a certain diet fast.
If this does happen we recommend switching from Biopren to a sweeter alternative such as the Imidasect Pharaoh Ant Gel Bait. This will help freshen your approach and lead to better results.
By following the steps outlined above you should be able to get your pharaoh ant infestation under control. It is crucial to be persistent and accurate with your baiting.
Remember that complete elimination of a pharaoh ant colony can take weeks. Keep baiting until there is no more ant activity and be patient.
