Here’s what you need to know about ants

In Bali we have so many plants and perfect soil conditions for ants to live and breed. You may see a lot of ants everywhere when you are in Bali even in the villas and hotels where you stay. And that’s actually a common thing.


Ants like to be around trees, plants, grass, etc. Although sometimes considered a nuisance, ants also have benefits for soil fertility such as increasing organic matter into the soil, changing soil chemistry for the better, and making the soil rich in nitrogen and phosphorus. If you are not bothered by ants, it would be better if you leave them in your garden.


But if you want to know the best way to deal with them, you can contact Geotermix to help provide the best solution that suits your environment.

How to get rid of ants?

Here are the steps to get rid of ants:


  • Sanitation – First, you need to do sanitation such as doing house cleaning to prevent ants from nesting in the house.
  • Natural Ways – The second step, use natural methods such as sprinkling black or red pepper (cayenne) around the kitchen and elsewhere. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it is a safe way to help repel ants by taking advantage of the annoying smell of pepper.
  • Organic Liquid Spray – The third step, use an organic liquid spray if ants are still a lot in your house.
  • Chemical Treatment – The last step, you can use a chemical treatment from Geotermix if you think the above method is not optimal.



How to prevent ants?

Ants are often found in the crevices of buildings. They like to hide and nest in crevices and can easily enter your home whenever there are food crumbs on the table or anywhere else. So, the best way to prevent ants is to apply sanitation that can keep your home clean.


  • Cleaning – Clean tables, chairs, shelves, cabinets, and trash cans regularly from food residue and oil residue and use cleaning liquid afterward to make them smell good.
  • Manage your trash can – Collect trash, especially food scraps, and put it in a plastic bag, then tie the plastic bag tightly. Be sure to place a plastic bag full of leftovers in a trash can with a lid.
  • Sealing – Seal all cracks in walls, ceilings, floors and drains to prevent ants from nesting in these areas.
  • Take Care of Your Garden – Cut any plants or branches that touch the buildings.



Is there an organic pesticide to spray the ants?

To provide you with a safer chemical treatment, we provide pest treatment services using an organic liquid made from neem oil. Reporting from The Spruce, Tuesday (12/15/2020), neem oil is oil taken from the seeds obtained from the neem tree or Azadirachta indica. Not only is it used as a natural insect repellent, neem oil is also used in the health and cosmetic industries.

Further Notice

If you decide to contact us to help you get rid of ants with chemical treatments, then the first thing we do is tell you about how these chemical treatments work so you can understand them fully. Chemical treatments are not the primary way to get rid of ants, you can only use this method as a last resort to treat ants in conditions where the nests or sources of ants in your environment cannot be removed. The chemical treatment is intended to minimize the ant population. It should be done monthly for 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or even more to get maximum results. You can also choose to use our recommended sanitation methods for controlling ants as an additional method to minimize chemical treatments.
