THE BIRTH OF THE SETTLEMENT OF BARN’S ANT:
At the end of summer season they appear on the surface of the anthill as a great quantity of male and female winged ants that suddenly start to fly all together, forming a cloud of ants, that turns away almost always after a thunderstorm for profiting by the movement of the high pressure.
During the flight the females mate with a lot of males continuing to fly for a pair of kilometres (carried by the wind they can reach distances of a lot of kilometres) they lay on the ground, find a hole into the ground, they remove the wings from which they take a lot of proteic food, they lay the eggs and won’t come out again for all of their life, that lasts from five to twenty year. When the first worker ants will go out from the nest they will get the food for the queen.
THE BIRTH OF THE SETTLEMENT OF PHARAOH ANT:
The Pharaoh Ant is the only one that do not execute the so-called “wedding flight” because this exemplar hasn’t got the wings, in fact it prefers to make in the inside of the same anthill and only after the new queen it will move together with some worker ant at its following.
Te red Ant or Myrmica Rubra and its “bite” manages with its sting to wound also the human being in a fastidious way but, by dance, not dangerous, in Italy do not exist dangerous exemplars for the human being if not for an accentuated allergy to the stings of the insects.
THE DIGESTIVE APPARATUS AND THE MAINTENANCE OF THE SETTLEMENT:
The “stomach” of the workers is practically divided in two, one for themselves and one for the community, in this way the ants “supply” directly the queen and the settlement, this system of feeding is called trofallassi.
The cave of the ants: As it is known the ants have got a hierarchical order very well distinguished, it is divided in female queen and it is fruitful and fertilizer, female workers and they are infertile and infertile males and female soldiers, the winged ants are the sexed ants of the settlement whether female or male (that when it is realized the impregnation they die), the sex of the ants is simply established, if impregnated are females otherwise they are males.
CHEMICAL PEST CONTROL OF THE SETTLEMENTS OF THE ANTS:
If it is an abandoned area as a disused vault, garage or a blind area, it can be applied a product with a solvent base as the clorpirifos or dolvp, the hard is to arrive to the position of the nest where resides the queen, obviously these products must be used in the maximum respect of the environment therefore not in scattering, by highly qualified personnel with a chemical person in charge, and in the maximum respect of the rules on the industrial safety.
PEST CONTROL OF THE SETTLEMENTS OF ANTS WITH PRODUCTS WITH A LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:
If it is a residential area or however crowded for medium-long periods, we advise a liquid product with a low toxic index but with a high residuality, in this case we advise the use of pyrethrum products, poisons obtained from the flowers of the African pyrethrums as the K-Othrine Flow or Aqua Py and they are both Buyer products, and this don’t indicate that these are ecological products but they are products with a low environmental products and therefore for an employment in a civil orbit, the difficult is to arrive to the position of the nest where it lives the queen, as a matter of fact these products must be used in the maximum respect of the environment and therefore not in scattering, from high qualified personnel with a chemical person in charge, and in the maximum respect of the rules in the industrial safety.
ECOLOGICAL PEST CONTROL OF THE ENVIRONMENTS OF THE ANT:
The product in question is the KOANT Professional gel, it solves the problem in an absolutely secure way, also ecologic and hygienic. The product is safe for the human beings and other animals and besides it removes the problem of the insects and particularly of worker ants that look for feed. The product operates stopping the intestinal passage of the Ant not later than the 2/12 hours following the ingestion. A later action that avoids the deposit of dead insects in the treated area and furthermore the spreading of diseases and bacteria that they carry.
This revolutionary system with the gel assures an excellent level of security adapted for the food part and hospital-medical more than habitat with a high frequentation and long permanencies.
PEST CONTROL AGAINST ANTS AND PRODUCTS:
In the fighting against cockroaches in an internal and external and decorative area must be used P.M.C. products (medico-surgical aid) and properly registered to the Ministry of Health and provided with the safety and technical cards, is very suggested the use of ecological products KOANT.
For the green external areas an also be used phytosanitary products also them with safety and technical Cards. Pest control against ants and workpeople: The staff must be highly qualified and the company must elect a chemical person in charge and the Chamber of Commerce. Other the normal social-security membership, and also pensions and industrial accidents fixed by the law.
