What are Citronella Ants?
Citronella ants are small, yellow ants (approximately 4 mm in size) that emit a very strong citronella smell when crushed (hence their name).
Treatment for Citronella Ants
We treated this area and the landscape with a granular bait. Afterward, we applied a liquid non-repellant along the exterior of the building.
Citronella Ants Exterminated
When the ants come in contact with either of these products, they'll return to their nest and transfer the treatments throughout their colony. A short while later, both species of ants will be exterminated.
