Ant Field Trials 

Our expertise for your success... 

Finally, it is just around the corner: summer. Who doesn't look forward to the beautiful weather, the warm sun, fragrant flowers and chirping birds.  

But even the beautiful things have their darkside. With the warm-beautiful days there aren`t only mosquitoes, ticks and wasps. No! 

They will be soon active again: the ants. We are talking about the Black garden ant "Lasius niger". It is an adaptable insect and one of the most common ant species in Central Europe. 

The ant nest likes to hide in nature under stones, in the lawn, under tree bark or in wall crevices. With countless workers and their brood, the nests can be found, for example, under sidewalks and slabs such as terraces in rather inconvenient places. In which they are usually a nuisance to us. 

Fighting the ants 

To keep these nuisance insects at bay, the entire nest is often treated. 

Direct treatment of the nest by scattering and/or watering appropriate products, can quickly provide relief. Bait formulations, that the ants introduce into the nest through "foragers" and that are subsequently passed on to the entire colony are also among the helpful methods of eliminating the ants.

It is necessary to pay attention to the following 

It is important to note the following with all these products and treatment methods: 

These must be tested according to European legislation, the Biocidal Products Regulation, according to specified test parameters! 

This includes for example: 

  • Field tests (approx. May to September), 
  • replicates,  
  • test points,  
  • efficacy criteria  
  • and much more... 

However, many, by now, relevant test conditions are not yet specified in the relevant guideline. This is where our experience and expertise comes into play.
