Does Bleach Kill Ants?

No one likes discovering ants in their home. Many people feel uncomfortable or grossed out when they see ants marching through their kitchen or around their windows. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own home. That’s why it’s important to get rid of ants as soon as possible. Ant infestations are easier to handle earlier rather than later. 

When you are looking for a way to kill ants, you have a number of options at your disposal.  If you live in North Carolina, you can always call your local pest control heroes at Clegg’s! If that is not an option however, you can find a variety of ant traps and baits online or in stores that claim to effectively remove ants. While these traps can be successful in killing or catching a few ants, often, they can’t completely eliminate your ant problem. When traps and baits don’t work, many people start looking for a do it yourself way to get rid of ants. One of the most popular home ant remedies is bleach. 

Can Clorox Bleach Kill Ants?

Can Clorox Bleach Kill Ants?

 

A common question that our Clegg’s pest control customers ask is “can you use Clorox bleach to get rid of ants?” The answer is yes. All brands of bleach can kill ants. Clorox is the most popular brand of bleach out there but there are other brands that can also get the job done when it comes to killing ants.  Although bleach can kill ants, like traps and baits, it will not be able to completely get rid of the ant problem. Another problem with using bleach to handle an ant infestation is that it can release fumes that are harmful to both humans and pets. Some people have this problem when using bleach to deal with cockroaches

Ants breathe through their exoskeleton. This is why the articles recommending bleach suggest that you put it in a spray bottle. When you spray them with bleach, they breathe it in through their exoskeleton and end up dying. The problem with using bleach is that you will only be able to kill the ants that you can see, and only the ants that you spray will be exterminated. This means that the overall infestation could continue. If you want a more permanent solution to an ant infestation, the best thing to do is bring in an ant extermination expert. Here at Clegg’s we have a team of knowledgeable and friendly heroes who are dedicated to helping you eliminate your ant problem.
