Black Ants, Sugar Ants, Red Ant Problems:

Common areas for ants to nest and breed are usually large subterraneal colonies made up of many hundreds of thousands in networks of tunnels. The worker ants forage for food and water on a daily basis. These pests will enter our living and working space, and since only a relatively small percentage (5-10%) of the colony actually forages, spraying the foraging ants will ultimately have little to no effect overall. The common black sugar ants do not cause any structural damage to property, and are quite harmless. They become an irritation and are seen as a pest when present in large numbers which can eventually grow and cause a need for Ant Control solutions.

 

Perimeter Treatment of Ants
Any treatment to the perimeter of the premises is a very effective short-term knockdown aiming to prevent the ants from entering your premises in the first place. It is impossible for us to eradicate the source of the problem under the ground, so we just offer a temporary solution to a bigger problem.

 

Residual Treatment of Ants
Combined with a perimeter spray to outside walls we also treat inside by means of a residual spray applied to problem areas. The insecticidal spray treatment leaves a residual of active ingredient behind and this can cause the ants to be stimulated in the process of poisoning. So please do not worry, the ant activity should decrease after about a week.

 

Ant Bait Treatment
We can also apply revolutionary ant bait gels and granules in strategic places inside. These environmentally friendly, non-toxic and odourless ant gels and granules are a food source that is taken by the ants back down into the nests and kills from within. For best results it does need to be re-applied, and follow-up visits are necessary.

 

Garden & Lawn Treatment for Ants
Our garden & lawn treatments are also very effective in the short term. As this treatment involves applying a water soluble chemical outside, and we cannot control the weather patterns, unfortunately we can only offer a 3 month service guarantee. Rain washes the chemical away and the UV of the sun also breaks down the active ingredient. Recommended for dry winter months.
