Controlling Ants

Use baits, not perimeter sprays.  Early season baiting for ants is effective to keep ant populations from getting out of hand.  For outside control starting in February:

-- Locate nests and apply baits. 

-- Baiting outside keeps ants outside, but sometimes it is necessary to bait inside; place bait inside only where ants are entering the room.

-- Trim trees and apply caulking in cracks to eliminate access to buildings.
