Ants infestation? I went for a survey at a house which was infested with ants. The house owner showed me the ants trail at the floor (as shown above) and ants trail at the ceiling. He was asking, what else shall he do  because he has tried vary methods and infestation still occur!

Well, what we (Pest Controller) normally will do are: -

1) Check out the infested area. Most of the time, you will see their nest is in the cracks and crevices.
2) You have 2 choices here, which are: -

a) Clear the infestation by using ant bait. Disadvantage of using baiting system will be, you need to be patient. It takes time to clear the colony.

b) You may start spraying by using liquid insecticides. Disadvantage will be, you just treat what you see on the surface. You might not 100% clearing the infestation.

My preferable choice will be clearing the colony with ant bait. Once the colony is cleared, I will go for residual spraying (as prevention) in monthly basis. This will help in building a chemical barrier and deter from ants infestation. Last but not least, I will seal up all the cracks and crevices. This method is minimising the breeding ground and harbouraging area for ants.
