Application Tips to Eliminate Ant Hills

Although different ants have different behavior patterns, they are all annoying to people for the same reasons: once they take up residence in your home or garden, they quickly reproduce, eat all the available food sources, and can be very difficult to dislodge. In general, ants themselves are not considered a health threat to people or pets, but they can contaminate food and destroy vegetation in the house and garden.

  • Doktor Doom Foaming Residual Ant Nest Eliminator
  • Doktor Doom Residual Spray
  • Rake
  • Garden Fork or Dandelion Weeder
  • Garbage can lid or plywood
