What harm do ants do?
Despite the undoubted benefit of ants for the ecosystem, the close proximity to them has its own, rather significant, disadvantages.
Garden ants feed on plants: buds and flower petals, sweet berries and fruits, vegetables and root crops. In early spring, ants can eat seeds and seedlings. In one season, one ant family can eat more than 10,000 seeds!
Ants love sweets, so they make a symbiosis with aphids, providing it with protection from enemies and the cold, arranging it for the winter.
Ants graze aphids on berry and rose bushes, and on fruit trees. Following the aphids, other pests and diseases attack the weakened plants.
In addition, in the places where the ants settled, the acidity of the soil increases markedly, which negatively affects the development of plants.
Domestic ants spoil food, spread pathogens, moving from the garbage to the kitchen table and back, and cause discomfort to the residents of the house.
The benefits of the preparation:
High insecticidal effect against garden and domestic ants.
A prolonged prolonged aftereffect, which is manifested in the death of pests in the next phases of development and during the development of subsequent generations.
Antaut is safe for warm-blooded animals, birds, fish, bees and humans, there is no risk of accumulation of toxic substances in the environment.
Instructions for use:
Against garden black and red ants
Consumption rate: 20g of the preparation per 1 anthill (colony of ants).
To process one anthill, it is necessary to dissolve 20 g of the preparation in 1-1.5 l of non-chlorinated water.
Pour the anthill evenly with a prepared solution (colony of ants). Processing should be carried out after 20:00, when the ants have already returned to the anthill.
With a high probability of precipitation within 24 hours, it is necessary to delay the use of the preparation.
Against house ants
Consumption rate: 40g of the preparation per 40m2 of the cultivated area.
The bait product should be scattered in the places where ants are present (anthills, living quarters, terraces, paving slabs and paving slabs, trails, entrances to residential buildings, storage and industrial premises, etc.).
