How does Batzner get rid of pharaoh ants?

Batzner Pest Control uses baits to treat pharaoh ants. They are placed in areas where ants are active and where they are inaccessible to children and pets. The bait is carried back to the nests by worker ants, where it is fed to the entire colony.

Pharaoh ant control is a cooperative process. Elimination of food sources and monitoring for pharaoh sightings are key.

What steps can I take to control or prevent pharaoh ants myself?
