FEATURED | NPMA 2020 | Ant Update
In 2020 ACES pest control attended the NPMA conference virtually. One of the course completed was Ant Super Colonies. It was interesting to learn that the Argentine ant can form super colonies. In the Europe the largest super colony is the Argentine ant, with the nest stretching 1000s of km from the coast of France, south and east all the way to Italy! It was interesting to see how the Amercian Scientists dealt with such large ants nests. It quickly became apparent that they only use products with a transfer property. It also became obvious that the best practise in the USA for ant treatments is to use products with a transfer property. Also that their focus was on the exterior of buildings and didn't spray the interior of a home or business. It was reasuring that ACES pest controls ant treatment technique is best practise in the USA.
