How Organic Is This Program?
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 killing any existing ant colonies within six weeks and maintaining a barrier for up to 1 year 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 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 called 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. It also only has to be applied once per year.
This program also provides a barrier against fleas and ticks for 3-4 months.
