How do I get rid of ants?
You have a few methods to get rid of ants. You can use simple boiling water but this can be risky and isn’t a long-term fix. You could use an exterminator, which is effective but often expensive and means leaving home for a couple of days. Or you could use more humane methods like an ultrasonic ant deterrent or our non-toxic spray.
Homeshielders prefer the more humane method as it’s safer for you, your children, pets and for the environment!
How do ultrasonic ant deterrents work?
Homeshielders ultrasonic ant deterrents work by emitting very high-pitched noise known to annoy pests and common critters. The noise is inaudible to humans and most pets and is effective against insects, rodents and other visitors who want to share our homes and yards!

Is your bug spray effective even though it’s non-toxic?

How many ant control devices will I need to get rid of ants?
The number of ant control devices you need depends on how large your home is and how large your ant problem is. We would typically recommend one device per room but you wouldn’t need to cover every room, only those which ants favor.
If the problem moves to another room, you can use another device in that room until they get the message.
