As Canberra’s leading ant and pest control provider, we take care of any pest infestation or problems affecting your home or business.
Canberra’s warm, dry climate and leafy surroundings are an ideal breeding ground for ants and other pests. Our professionally trained ant and pest technicians provide safe and effective treatments targeting affected areas of your property.
We offer preventative ant inspections along with a selection of ant management solutions to suit your home or business.
Ants may happily live in your garden for many years, breaking down compost and turning over the soil. But, once they start invading your house or business, that’s a different story.
Some ants may even decide to nest in your walls or your kitchen. So, when an ant trail forms, wiping them away will only ever be a short term fix. You need to call a professional to identify the ants and treat them at the source.
Whether it’s for your existing property, renovation or building a new home call (02) 6147 2613. Speak to our experts and book an ant inspection to treat them for good.
Suburbs such as Belconnen and Majura and even businesses in Civic and Dickson are all prone to ants. Ants are more of a nuisance than a threat. Other than getting into food, they can soften the soil in the garden around trees and your property. However, in extreme cases, they can even attack electrical wiring.
In Canberra, we mainly treat for Black Ants and Coastal Brown Ants. These ant species form a nest in the backyard and can enter the house or office space if they can’t find water during a drought. Otherwise, they may enter the house after a lot of rain, as their nest has flooded.
The Coastal Brown Ant is common in many urban areas and searches for fat and oily foods or meat. While Black Ants prefer sweet foods such as honey or jam. Keeping food sealed in tight jars and mopping up spills are the best ways to prevent ants from becoming too settled in your home.
Why ants are a nuisance for commercial premises in Canberra
We often treat office spaces, restaurants and other locations for ants in businesses, especially after a downpour. Kitchenettes and communal tea and coffee areas are prone to ant infestations.
Birthday cake crumbs, biscuits left in desk draws and food not sealed properly in kitchen cabinets all attract ants.
An ant infestation in your workplace is a nuisance for employees. It can also turn away customers and affect your brand. Don’t risk your reputation. Call (02) 6147 2613. Speak to our experts and book an ant inspection today.
Why you need to call Flick for ant problems in homes in Canberra
Ants can be a difficult pest to eradicate, especially with over the counter chemicals. The ants entering your home are only a small proportion of the colony population. The technician will need to identify the ant species and then locate the nest, which could be close to the house or further away. The treatment also depends on the size of the colony.
A technician will treat the ants at the source of the problem, preventing the ants from returning in the future.

I had the very calm and professional Tom Andrews come by all week to catch what we thought was a possum in our roof. It... was clear from day one that he knew how these animals behaved and was very quickly able to determine that it was infact a different issue. He used multiple techniques and was able to sort it out very quickly. We haven't heard scratching or banging in the roof since he did his magic. Job well done!!read more

Flick is the best pest control service I’ve ever used. Marc O’Donnell came again today, having been here 2 years ago... for the same service. He was on time, extremely friendly and helpful, and did a thorough job inspecting the house. He also applied long-acting pesticide inside and out. He was the first of the inspectors to recommend the treatment in 2020. The treatment has been very effective controlling insects and spiders until the next inspection. Marc’s reports are professional with practical recommendations for termite prevention. I can highly recommend the service and have been very happy with the results.read more

Absolutely awesome service. Thank you Martin Kennedy for doing our yearly termite inspection. Not only did he check... everything he also answered my questions in regards to treated fence and how they can get into your house. A very knowledgeable technician who confirmed what I knew was correct. We have annual inspections for our termite barrier which was installed when the house was built. I strongly encourage people to get Flick out to do an inspection on the property before you buy. Don’t rely on your usual pest inspection. Martin would be the ideal person to do an inspection before you buy. His knowledge is outstanding. Thank you Martin.read more
Both Marc and Michael were on time and extensively inspected the roof void and underfloor of our property to find the... source of our insect infestation. They identified where specific activity had occurred and recommendations for future-proofing the property. The nature of our build was such that they could not directly remove the source but at least we now know where the problem lies! They were both very professional, informative and helpful. We would use Flick and these two technicians again. Also, the receptionist when I booked the call was very helpful and understanding and provided us with an early next-day callout (as well as a very specific time!), which was very much appreciated.read more
