Those ants may seem tiny but they can cause a huge problem to your outdoor lighting system. In the Guru’s experience servicing lighting systems, one of the biggest problems we see is ants nesting in one of the electrical components. It may not sound like a big deal, but the ants can actually ruin the equipment by either chewing through the components or bringing in dirt to create a nest leading to moisture issues.
There are various opinions on why the ants are attracted to electrical components but the key to fixing the issue is through prevention. We now have a 6 month ant preventative that we add to new systems and can maintain existing systems. They are added to every tree mounted fixture, every jbox, every power post and every transformer.
Don’t let ants ruin your professionally installed landscape lighting system. Protect your investment by keeping the ants out! We offer lighting maintenance service plans for existing systems that includes the ant treatment. Give us a call if you are interested 210-710-7737.
