After treatment, prevent further infestations by cleaning up food spills immediately and removing unconsumed pet foods and changing pet feeding stations regularly.
Another tip is to seal all cracks and crevices which allow ants entry into your building. It’s also a good idea to trim back exterior trees and plants which are close to the house.

Common Ant Questions

What damage can ants cause?
Ants look unsightly and can cause damage to structures and people. They can spoil foodstuffs and invade wall cavities, electrical equipment and roof voids. While they don’t carry disease themselves, they can traffic dirt and other unhygienic substances. They can also bite! As they nest in large colonies, an infestation can quickly become a problem.
When and where are ants most active?
As they’re cold blooded, Ants just love the warmth. Ant populations generally increase with warmer climates and the level of humidity; or you’ll see them in winter as they invade your house to take shelter. However, the main reason they’re in your house is for food and supplies! Your kitchen is a prime location for an infestation.
What are the signs of an infestation?
There are usually NO signs of an infestation – until you see them! Ants are tiny and hide in crevices until they come out to hunt for food or water. There are likely multiple access points in your house which you’ll need to seal. Our treatment will also help keep them away for a long period of time.
What are ants attracted to?
Ants are looking for a pleasant temperature and moisture. Which is why they love the kitchen! Any spillages of water or juice should be wiped up immediately – ants love sweetness and are attracted by the smell of honeydew and sugar. It’s also important to store food in the fridge and seal packets of food.
