Effective Solutions to Treating Ants

Ant Control in Sydney

Ants may seem harmless, but they can pose several risks. Some species, like carpenter ants, can cause structural damage. They hollow out wood to build their nests. Fire ants deliver painful stings that can lead to severe allergic reactions. Even common household ants can spread bacteria and contaminate food preparation areas. But don’t struggle with these pests on your own. We offer the cost-effective ant control services you need.

Our experts use the latest products and techniques to effectively control them. They’re customised to the ant species causing trouble. Our experienced technicians will inspect your property and apply targeted treatments. These eliminate current infestations and prevent future ones. We use sprays, insecticide dust and granule baits. All our products are safe for your family and pets. We come back regularly to re-apply until the issue is fully controlled.

Don’t let ants ruin your home or business! Proactively manage them to prevent costly damage and health risks.

What are Ants?

Ants are small insects with three distinct body segments, six legs, and antennae. They live in colonies with a complex social structure, including a queen, workers, and sometimes soldiers. They go through a complete metamorphosis, starting as eggs, then larvae, and pupae. Finally, they emerge as adults.

They communicate through chemical signals and are highly organised. This makes them difficult to control once established.

While most ants are considered nuisance pests, some species can pose health risks. Their stings can cause severe allergic reactions. Some spread bacteria and contaminate food sources. These insects are attracted to spilled food, crumbs, leaks, and shelter. This is why they often invade homes and businesses. They’re also drawn to other pests like aphids or scale insects that produce honeydew.

Common Species

  • Black House Ant: Small, dark-coloured insects that prefer sweets and can nest in walls or ceilings.
  • Coastal Brown Ant: Light brown variety that prefers proteins and greasy foods, often found behind skirting boards.
  • Fire Ant: Reddish ants are known for their painful stings and aggressive behaviour, nesting in mounds in lawns or gardens.
  • Green-head Ant: Large, greenish insects that can deliver painful bites and are often found in bushland areas.
  • Argentine Ant: Small, light to dark brown. They form super-colonies and are attracted to sweet foods.

  • Nests or mounds in lawns, gardens, or potted plants
