The use of granular baits is a terrific way to control many pests. Ants are a great example. They have a queen who is responsible for the egg laying. Because the queen never leaves the nest, she is not susceptible to traditional insecticide sprays. Baits are a great alternative since they are gathered by the worker ants and taken back to the colony. Most baits consist of an active ingredient,either an insecticide or a growth regulator, mixed with a food product. By choosing a particular food product the manufacturer can control which pests will eat it and which pests won't. This is particularly useful when you want to limit the scope or impact of an insecticide application. If you have any questions please contact us.
