Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Everyone knows about the benefits of ants. They destroy pests, loosen the soil and give access to oxygen, enrich it with useful substances and increase fertility, carry seeds over fairly long distances, their larvae serve as food for birds and animals. But many, especially the owners of summer cottages and garden plots, are also aware of the negative influence of these small insects.

  1. Ants are the main carriers of aphids.
  2. They can destroy seedlings, damage flowers and fruits.
  3. When a nest is located directly next to a plant, its root system is disturbed.
  4. Insects spread the seeds of weeds and other unnecessary plants around the garden.
  5. With a large accumulation of ants on the soil, it becomes acidic, as a result, many crops die.
  6. Trees, after insects stay in them, are destroyed, the bark turns into dust.

It should be noted that not only summer residents and gardeners suffer from ants. They bring a lot of problems in apartments and houses. Red ants live in any place: under wallpaper, baseboards, in crevices and cracks, foundations, even in folds of clothes and dishes. Special favorite places are rooms with high humidity. In showers and toilets, they spread around pipes, under sinks and bathrooms.

Types of ant remedies

Today there is a huge range of products with a different spectrum of effects. They are divided into several types:

  1. Aerosols. The most popular remedy for the destruction of domestic ants. It has instant action and is easy to use. The downside is that only visible insects are exterminated, and the uterus and other individuals located in places that are difficult to access for processing remain untouched.
  2. Solutions. The main and undoubted plus is the readiness for use. Typically, such products affect a wide range of pests. They are convenient for spraying garden paths, foundations, walls, crops. The effect lasts long enough, the product prevents the spread of flying insects.
  3. Powders. They are successfully used both outdoors and indoors. They can be applied both neat and diluted in water. The main advantages are ease of use, long-term effect. Disadvantage: outdoors, they are used only in dry, calm weather. When it rains, the exposure period is significantly reduced.
  4. Granules. The action is similar to powdered drugs. They are also used in garden plots and in houses, basements, greenhouses, verandas. The main advantage is a more convenient form of release. Unlike powders, they do not affect the human respiratory tract, do not generate dust.
  5. Gels. They serve as a kind of bait for insects. Unlike aerosols, there is no need to know the exact location of the nest. The ants themselves carry the substance to the colonies, where the uterus is destroyed and the larvae die. Many gels come in the form of syringes, which make it easy to apply the product anywhere. Final eradication time is 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the number of pests.
  6. The pencils. The compressed powder is more convenient to apply to the surface. With a pencil, you can draw lines on floors, walls, ceilings, cabinets and shelves. It has been used for much longer, and the effect is achieved quite quickly. After treatment, the duration of exposure lasts from 2 weeks to 1 month, which leads to the complete destruction of ants already living in the house and preventing the spread of new ones.
  7. Traps. An effective and convenient method that does not require dilution with water and other preparatory measures. They are glued at the rate of 1 trap per 5-10 sq. m under kitchen worktops, along baseboards, in bathrooms. As in gels, food bait does not immediately kill insects, but allows them to spread the substance throughout their colonies during the day, where other individuals and the uterus become infected.
  8. Scarers. The method is based on the action of ultrasonic waves on the nervous system of ants. The compact device is connected to the network, works silently, is completely inaudible to the human ear, and is harmless to people and animals. Many have chosen this method because of its simple use, which does not involve spraying, sprinkling or pouring the drug, does not get hands dirty, does not affect the health of pets.

So which one of the above is better to choose? Which one will be effective in a garden plot and a vegetable garden, and which one will better cope with house insects? Today our experts will try to answer these questions. The rating selected the best products of various textures and methods of exposure, which will provide irreplaceable help in the fight against ants and other harmful insects.
