Bulwark has been servicing our home with preventative treatments for 3 years now. We just have had an ant problem over the last few weeks and they have been great! They are responsive on the phone and the service technicians take their time and are thorough in treatment. Thanks Tim for the great weekend service! However - I just watched the ant video and although they decry baseboard spraying, that's just what the technician did. He sprayed the areas where we had been seeing ants along the baseboards and cabinet areas. But, he said he was using a non-repellent solution that the ants would track back to the colony. Haven't seen any ants along the sprayed areas, but there are still some around..... Hopefully this will work!
In terms of human health, property damage, and environmental damage; very few insects can hold a candle to the Fire Ant. Quite frankly, the Fire ant is the worst pest in North Carolinaâ€¦ And the residentâ€™s of Raleigh know it!
Unfortunately, Austin Fire Ants are not that easy to control. A Raleigh homeowner cannot simply walk into a local hardware store and purchase a can of insecticide. These over-the-counter sprays may exterminate a few ants, but will do little to completely eliminate a Fire Ant colony.
Because of their aggressiveness, and their ability to sting, itâ€™s not hard to mistake a Fire Ant. In fact, the Fire ant is the only stinging ant in the USâ€¦ And weâ€™re fortunate enough to get them in Raleigh. Fire ants also build massive mounds that can destroy your beautiful Raleigh, NC real estate.
