How do you kill ants without using pesticides?

While pesticides are effective at killing ants, there are several other steps to take to ensure their eradication. First, locate the source of the problem. For example, if ants are coming in through a crack in the exterior foundation or wall, seal off their entrance. If they are entering through another opening such as an open window frame, make sure the opening is sealed. Ants also can be controlled by eliminating food sources or closing off access to water, which should greatly reduce their numbers.

As for other ways to kill ants without using pesticides, one option is to use an ant bait instead of spraying insecticides on plants and soil where they are found. The active ingredient in most ant baits is boric acid. It works by confusing foraging ants and causing them to carry the bait back to their colony where it’s shared among the ants, eventually killing the entire colony. While this may take several days or weeks, it often works better than using pesticides. However, if a plant has been sprayed with an insecticide containing pyrethrin or permethrin, these products will need to be washed off before attempting an ant control method that uses baits.

Alternative ways to kill ants without using pesticides

An alternative way to kill ants without using pesticides is to use a borax solution. To make this solution, dissolve one cup of borax in one gallon of water and spray this mixture onto the ants,along with any anthills they are residing in, to kill them.

Another way to kill ants without using pesticides is by placing ant poison pellets outside their nests. The ants will eat the bait and return to the colony where other ants will eat it as well, eventually causing the entire colony to die. This method can take up to two weeks before the ants are gone, so it’s best to use a combination of methods if one doesn’t seem to be working.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
