Is there a natural organic ant killer?

Question: I have pets, and we have an ant infestation. Would you have a natural organic ant killer?

 

ANSWER: Orkin Pest Control uses a wide variety of products that are “green” in their basic makeup. However, I do not know about any truly effective “organic” products against ants. It would depend on your definition of “organic.”

Ant control, and any pest control for that matter, depends a lot on your actions. It is not all about treating with products or materials. The first steps are to follow the recommendations by the Orkin Pest Specialist regarding the elimination of conducive conditions to ant infestation. Your Orkin Pest Specialist will inspect your home thoroughly, identifying the issues that may be attracting the ants to your home, such as spilled pet food, pet dishes with water, etc. Upon assessing the situation, the Specialist will develop a scientifically based treatment plan that is customized to meet your needs. The first step in all of this is to call your local Orkin Branch office to set up the inspection.
