We all want a yard that is a healthy and enjoyable outdoor environment, free of ants and other insects. So, when it comes to funnel ant control for your home, you are faced with dealing with the issue yourself or calling in the lawn ant control professionals.

In this blog, we will look at the pros and cons of both options to help you make the best decision for your yard.

DIY Lawn Ant Control

DIY funnel ant control would usually be in the form of a home remedy or a store-bought solution. Some home remedies include using cinnamon, vinegar, or lemon juice to interfere with the ant’s trails and prevent them from finding their way back to their nests.

Store-bought solutions will be in the form of insecticides, including those containing Permethrin or Bifenthrin. These chemicals will kill the funnel ants who come into contact with them; however, these substances will not be transported back into the nest, rendering them ineffective as a long-term solution.

So, while these DIY solutions can provide some temporary relief, they will not affect the main population of the ant colony. These solutions will need to be applied at frequent intervals, making them a time-consuming method with limited results.

Calling in the Professionals

There are multiple advantages to calling professionals to rid your lawn of funnel ants. Firstly, they will thoroughly inspect your yard to determine the extent of your infestation. Based on their specialist knowledge and experience, they can suggest the most cost-effective and long-lasting solution to your ant problems.

Their made-for-purpose chemicals are not only more effective than the store-bought variety but are also more thoroughly tried and tested, eco-friendly options, like the Termidor range of products, that take advantage of the ant’s feeding habits to achieve the most effective results.

By using professional pest control services, you will also receive a guarantee for a minimum of 12 months of being ant-free, but it can even last for up to three years.
