Re: Scuttle ants

Ask any pest control expert for advice and there first step is to identify the food source. That applies to all vermin. There is no point in trying to eliminate them without removing or isolating their food. In fact in many cases there is no need to eradicate the pests just get rid of the food and they either die off or go elsewhere.

As many people eat on the hoof nowadays many people eat and drink inside their cars so good clean up is the first step. It only takes a few grains of sugar to attract many insect pests so even though your car may appear spotless inside the soft furnishing can hold small grains of food or spilt soft drinks, etc.
