Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

Ants are back in the master bedroom toilet. Suspect they are coming from the aircon trunking. Tried putting granular baits but they still roam after 3 days. Will try to seal any opening and spray thickly at the point.

Re: Pests: ants & geckos

It is too difficult to find the nest if external, I called TC, even their pest control cannot find. They ended up spraying only. Anyone facing problem of ants coming in from external wall? If ants are coming from somewhere externally, there has got to be a nest and a queen somewhere. You are going t...

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

Ants are roaming outside my window trying to make an entry. All I can do is spray. I dare not put bait because they are on the outside and the bait needs to be dry and protected from environment to take effect. Anyone has similar problems?

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

Thanks for your tips. We have sealed up as many holes as we can since 3 years ago, but still coming in. Mainly from the windows. We have put concentrated dettol and vinegar, and even used an ant bait once, but once we stop doing these, they returned with a vengeance. Natural remedies have a limited ...

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

Sugar ants, those with half body translucent color. Worst thing is, we did engage pest control once, they put bait no spray, ended up more ants invade. So wife is resistant to using bait now. Spraying did its job for now though, we use Shieldtox to spray on the outside of windows and Bio X on the in...

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

I think those residual sprays only held by pest control companies. But it's expensive to engage their services in the long run. We have been very vigilant in our cleaning but yet ants still nested in our place. Despite that we check regularly, they still managed to enter and nest. This is driving us...

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

Hi, sorry to reopen this thread, but we have ants infestation in our house and desperate to prevent them from entering. Saw that some of you put Shieldtox Odourless around the perimeter of entry points, this is what we have in mind too. We plan to spray every week on the outside of our windows. But ...
