What is the KM Sentinel Ant Pro & Ant Control System?

At Venice Pest Control, we often recommend KM Sentinel Ant Pro to our customers. This low-toxicity bait system was developed by a pest control expert from Sarasota County. Our team depends on Ant Pro to work effectively while posing the least risk to the environment.

How the Ant Pro System Works

KM Sentinel Ant Pro protects your property 24 hours a day. Unlike many insecticides, Ant Pro doesn't just kill the foraging ants that wander around your house and your yard. Because the bait contains such a small amount of borate salts, the material is transported back to the colony where it can reach the queen and the next generation of workers. The ants that you see above the ground represent a very small part of the colony. Unless the bait reaches the queen and the majority of the population, your problem will return.

Ant Pro Advantages

Efficacy and low toxicity are the primary advantages of the Ant Pro system, but it has a number of other benefits. Some ant control products affect pollinators and beneficial insects. When used with Innovative Pest Control Product's Gourmet Liquid Ant Bait, the Ant Pro system doesn't endanger the good guys, but it does attract cockroaches, crickets, earwigs and some of the unpleasant pests that are common in Sarasota. The KM Sentinel targets garden-variety ants as well as invasive fire ants, Caribbean crazy ants and white-footed ants. The system has helped people who suffer from fire ant allergies and families who were overrun by invasive ant colonies.

This gravity-fed dispensing system resists rain, wind and Florida's worst weather. The dispensers are compact and made with a neutral green-colored plastic to blend in with your landscaping. Each sentinel holds up to 19 ounces of liquid, so maintenance is minimal. The Ant Pro achieves optimal results using small amounts of bait that are delivered on demand. The material never touches the ground, so it poses less harm to the environment. Although the system is designed for use with disodium octaborate tetrahydrate, it can also be used with growth-regulating products. The goal is to provide a source of food and water that attracts foraging ants.

Using the Ant Pro Sentinel

Depending on the size of your home, just six Ant Pro dispensers can eliminate your ant problem. Carpenter ants are easy targets, so you'll see results in one week. It may take up to a month to eradicate some invasive species. Once the colony is eliminated, the sentinels will protect your property from future infestations.

If you've been battling these tiny invaders, it's time to say hello to KM Sentinel and goodbye to those pesky ants. Our experts can help you with all of your pest problems.
