Season Long Granular Application
Unlimited Spot Mount Treatments As Necessary
Q: What am I getting with this service?
A: A granular product is applied to the entire property including landscaped beds etc. once per year in April. The initial application begins killing any existing ant colonies within six weeks and maintains a barrier for up to 12 months GUARANTEED. If any active colonies are spotted after six weeks of the initial application, we will come back out to treat with a more targeted product for FREE. Any colonies present at the time of the initial application with also receive the more targeted formula to ensure the successful irradiation of the unwanted pests.
Q: Is there an Organic option?
A: Many organic products claim to control fire ants, but it has been our experience that there is nothing on the market currently that provides adequate control. Organic fire ant control products tend to "contact kill" only and almost never reach the queen, who can be up to 6 feet underground. There are viable natural products on the market for homeowners, but they are not sufficient enough for commercial use.
Q: Is the product safe?
A: The product uses an active ingredient most pet owners are familiar with because it is also the active ingredient in Frontline Plus. In fact, the product uses the active ingredient at a much lower rate than the version applied directly to a pet. It may not be organic, but it is safe enough to be used directly on pets. Also, it only has to be applied to the lawn once per year instead of your pet's skin every few months.
This program also provides a barrier against fleas and ticks for 2 months. If you are also on the Flea & Tick Control program, this application will be considered 2 months of the 6 month program.
