How Long Does Spraying for Ants Last?
When you have ants to get rid of, you want to know that whatever ant control method you choose will be effective and lasting.
Store-Bought vs. Professional
Spraying for ants is a popular ant elimination method. But are all ant sprays created equal?
Store-Bought SpraysIf you’ve ever used store-bought ant sprays, you may have been dissatisfied with the ineffective, temporary results. As if failing to get rid of ants wasn’t enough, some store-bought sprays can even make ant problems worse.
Professional SpraysHiring a professional to spray for ants can make all the difference. Professional products are effective and long-lasting. Once ants have been eliminated, regular professional product application keep your home pest-free.

Why Doesn't Ant Spray Last Longer?
Store-bought ant sprays last only a short time. Professional pest sprays offer longevity that store-bought sprays simply can’t.
Reapplications Keep You Protected.
Even though professional products have better staying power than store-bought ones, they still require reapplication. Variables like weather, temperature, and time cause product barriers to eventually deteriorate. Rather than allow your home to be exposed to ants once the product barrier is compromised, Saela keeps your home pest-free by reapplying pest control products during our quarterly services and free reservices.
Ants Are a Year-Round Problem.
People often think of ants as a summer problem, but that’s not the case. During the colder months, resources are scarce leading ants to seek them out in your home. Your warm home full of resources like food and moisture is very appealing to ants. Since ant activity doesn’t just occur in the summer, treating them shouldn’t either. Spraying for ants year-round is vital to keeping your home ant-free.
Does DIY Ant Control Work?
Many customers try DIY methods before contacting us only to find that getting rid of ants is more complicated than they anticipated.
Expert Knowledge = Successful Elimination
Eliminating ants takes knowledge of ant biology, species, behavior, pest control products, professional techniques, and using that information to eliminate ants.
For instance, one scent can repel some ants and attract others. This is the kind of information we use to bait and eliminate ants. Pest control attempts can fail without an understanding of intricacies like this.
Without the vast knowledge and experience needed to target ants, the average person can’t eradicate them as effectively as professionals can.
DIY Has Limited Effectiveness
While using store-bought pesticides might eliminate a few ants, they aren’t the most effective or longest-lasting solution.
Some commonly suggested DIY ant remedies include bleach, cleansers, essential oils, sprays, baits, and traps. Studies have shown that these DIY methods are useless at preventing and getting rid of ant infestations.
Of the various DIY methods that exist, essential oils and herbal remedies are the least effective. This likely isn’t surprising, but customers are often surprised to learn that even many store-bought pesticides don’t work very effectively.
Is It Difficult To Eliminate Ants?
Even when an ant nest is destroyed, there are often surviving scouting ants. These ants can form a new colony and build nests that are harder to access and better able to withstand pest control attempts.
Having the right products and knowledge is crucial to eliminating ants. Once ants are eliminated, regular services and reservices will keep ants away.
