amdro powerflex weed and pest sprayer system (2)

This AMDRO Power Flex system is compact and looks to be sized so any of us can handle carrying it around.  We have had a sprayer thing for a long time but it’s too bulky for me to carry around-  this one looks like just about anyone could handle it.  I again like the compact size of the product refills- less storage space taken up.  pennington smartfeed sprayer system (2)

Loving the no measure thing.  Lots of time saved- and mess.  (If you are me anyway!)  I like the slim packaging for the tablets, too- less space in the garage or shed taken up.  I can’t wait for the garden to start producing fruits!

Amdro Ant Block – we tried it (Winner announcement inside)

We had a chance to check out the AMDRO® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait for ourselves- and for a few of our neighbors.  I was happy that we weren’t spraying a pesticide into the air, and very curious to see the granules that are designed to be carried back to the colony and queen- which means the ants are not alive long enough to get inside of our homes.  I don’t know about you but summer=ants and it makes me feel so dirty if we have ants in the house.  I hate it.  (Remember, I mentioned this when I first introduced you to AMDRO a few weeks ago?)

Now, since we live in a rural area, and houses are not close together, I did spread some AMDRO love with a few neighbors, but also a good friend up the road a bit- they struggle with ants each year in their home and Lisa was more than happy to volunteer to party with me….so she and I spread the AMDRO granules around the perimeter of her home and now we’re in the wait and see mode…and both of us are feeling very optimistic that we’ll be waiting a long time…for nothing!!  We’ve both read great things about AMDRO’s home perimeter bait is at killing ants before they get into our homes and we’re feeling like our houses are armed in a new way against the little armies of ants who insist on invading us year after year.

Very quickly after we spread the granules, we noticed ants approaching.  It’s like they had a signal or something.  AMDRO apparently tastes really, really good to ants.  It also apparently works really well ON ants.  We haven’t seen any right around the perimeter of the house since.  Neither have our friends.  I’m feeling like the reviews are right and we’ve found a solution to a pesky problem! I found the pricing on the products available in our local Home Depot to be comparable to other similar products, and I like knowing something will be effective without costing extra money.

 

  • AMDRO Ant Block Home Perimeter Ant Bait kills a wide range of ant species around the perimeter of the home so they do not come inside.
  • The bait allows foraging (worker) ants to bring the granules back to their mound before taking effect, resulting in the entire colony, including the queen, being destroyed.
  • Following application, AMDRO Ant Block Home Perimeter Ant Bait works within two to four weeks, killing the queen and the ants in the colony.

AMDRO has a large product line of pest control products to meet just about any needs- kind of application, pest type, plant type.

School’s almost out, the weather’s nicer, long days of sunshine and outside fun are ahead.  Of course, with all this comes some extra friends who too frequently like to visit…ants.  I don’t know anyone who doesn’t deal with ants at least a few times each summer season…and I don’t know anyone who’s ever happy about it!   AMDRO® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait can help consumers to effectively treat the outside of their home to prevent extra household guests (ants).   I don’t know about you, but the only ants I welcome into my home were stars in an animated film years ago.

Unwelcome Guests of the Creepy, Crawly Variety

If you have ever had ants, cockroaches, ticks, mites or termites, you understand how very UNwelcome they are. Even the most gracious hostess in the world isn’t going to open her arms and door to her home to these “guests,” no matter what the occasion.  No offense to these critters but they are, by nature, a destructive lot and kind of need to be stopped before they get to the door.  Unfortunately, most of the time we’re unaware of our visitors before they’ve already crossed the threshold-either directly through the door or in other, more sneaky and most definitely destructive ways.

 

There are many things you can do to prevent these pests from moving in, like amending the soil near your affected area by adding live matter- compost or rotted manure, placing strong magnets around the area, and others, but sometimes, no matter what you do, they come anyway.  That’s when you have to call in professionals like Terminix (Which gets expensive fast- but click to save $50 on Terminix Pest Control Services).  Once undesirable pests are in your home, they don’t like to leave without a fight!!   [click to continue…]
