Acrobat Ant Control

Acrobat ants are named after their specific defense mechanism where they would raise their head over their abdomen which gives off the appearance of an acrobatic gymnast walking on his or her hands. They are a 1/8" of an inch with an especially dark abdomen. From a bird’s eye view, the abdomen looks similar to the shape of a heart. Despite their heart shaped exterior, Acrobat ants are one of the most irritating species of ants. The repulsive smell that they give off is enough to send most people reeling. The acrobatic ant is an expert at boring through wood and can really be the bane of a homeowner.

Acrobatic Ants Treatment

Unfortunately, they are also known to be more aggressive in demeanor and can really be trouble if a homeowner does not take action when an infestation is suspected. Making their nest out of decaying wood, they are adequately equipped at boring into the home in search of food. Acrobatic ants have a knack for finding the best way to enter a home, often times exploiting a crack or a place on the outside where the wood is rotting. In addition, Acrobat ants can make their through using door thresholds, weep holes, tree limbs, shrubs and even power lines.

How to Get Rid of Acrobat Ants

To prevent or put a halt to an Acrobat ant infestation, first investigate and find the main source of the problem. Speculating around your home would be your ideal first step. Most of the time, you can even follow their trail back where they came from. To give you an idea where they usually reside, Acrobat ants often nest in damaged wood, rotting logs and under woodpiles. Once your source is discovered, you should then directly apply the right insecticide. Ant baits and non-repellent sprays are suggested for this scenario. Then you can move onto indoor control. Before any indoor control method is applied, it would be wise to cut off possible entry points first. This includes trimming shrubs and tree limbs in close proximity to your home, repairing attic vents and damaged screens, sealing cracks and crevices and relocating decaying wood.

A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
