The AntPro Strategy:
The AntPro ant control strategy is essentially the warfare strategy described by the 4th century B.C. Chinese general Sun Tzu, in his well known text "The Art of War". The strategy works well with social insects such as ants, because it fully exploits their behavior and biology.
- Hold out baits to entice the enemy
- All warfare is based on deception
- Attack him where he is unprepared
- Appear where you are not expected
Thus the skillful leader subdues his enemies without any fighting.
When you consider the damage done by certain ant species, you quickly realize comparing ant control to warfare isn't much of a stretch. For example the Imported Fire ant currently infests over 300 million acres from Florida to California, and is responsible for death and injury to humans, domestic animals and wildlife. It provides a good example for how the AntPro strategy works.
First AntPro entices its quarry with Baits: By placing AntPro in areas where fire ants forage, they aggressively feed on the bait leaving positive (pheromone) trails for other workers from their colonies to follow. Next AntPro uses deception: The bait is liquid. The fire ants consume the liquid, and then return to the colony to feed other workers, soldiers, the young and the queens. The low-dose toxic bait affects the ants slowly over a period of several feedings. The fire ants are unaware and unprepared for the subtle attack, thus the soldiers do not exhibit alarm pheromones which warn and stop the colony members from feeding on the attractive food source. Over a period of repeated feedings, the colony is destroyed, thus the skillful leader subdues his enemies without any fighting.
