Ants and Ant Control Treatments
Ants are probably considered as the most annoying and unsightly common household pest , which is why Ant Control Treatments are essential. There are over 3000 species of ants in Australia some of which bite and others that are just a plain old nuisance. They tend to trail along skirting boards, bench tops, floor corners, windows, balconies, footpaths, driveways, letterboxes and anywhere there is an easily accessible food source.
Ant Control Treatment
Our Pest Control technicians thoroughly inspect the property before undertaking an Ant Control Treatment to ensure effective results. Generally the Ant Control Treatment consists of applying an Ant bait gel, liquid sprays and insecticidal dusts. The Ant bait gel is applied to areas where Ants are know to be and along Ant trails. The Ants feed on the bait and take it back to and kill off the nest. The liquid spray is applied to all external entry points, around doors and windows and along internal floor corners. The insecticidal dust is applied to the roof void and cracks and crevices where Ants are known to be.
