Nature has a way protecting itself from dangerous insects and pests that has been extremely effective. So, why mess with Mother Nature. The next time you see unwanted insects in or around your home consider organic pest control.

There are many advantages of organic pest control. The biggest advantage is the fact that they are effective and will cause no harm to your home, your family or your pets. The organic products used by professionals can be applied as often as needed without causing your family or home any harm. There is also no harm to the ozone layer, which is a definite plus to our environment. This is a win-win all around.

While Phoenix has many types of pests to contend with let’s discuss the ever popular and annoying ant. As you know, if you see one in your home many others are soon to follow no matter how often you clean your home, wash your floors or wipe down your counters. With one there are many more to follow.

So, how do you get rid of these annoying critters naturally? It is done by using a product called, Terro ant bait. This natural pest control product is sweet, which is something that ants adore. It has the same consistency as pancake syrup and ants cannot get enough of it. Once one ant gets the taste and scent of the Terro ant bait they will carry some of the bait back to the colony where it will be consumed by other ants and they will eventually die from its effects. For those that are not part of their colony the ant will naturally use chemicals, called pheromones, that leave scent trails for other ants to follow.

Terro ant bait has been found to be extremely effective, if not more effective than chemical pest control. This is

done through the natural mineral known as boric acid. This mineral is very destructive to the ant’s digestive system. Due to this they eventually die. This occurs naturally within 24 to 48 hours of the consumption of the Terro ant bait.

You may be wondering how it is affected if they die so slowly. The answer to this is quite simple. Because it occurs slower than chemical products this allows the worker ant to return several times to “the scene of the crime” and bring more and more Terro ant bait back to their colony. Thus, more ants are affected by the Terro ant bait. It should only take a few days for you to see a significant drop in the number of ants that come to consume the Terro ant bait.

Organic pest control can also help you eliminate spiders and those pesky scorpions in a safe and natural way as well. Take back control of your home while keeping your family safe and bug free.
