Ant Removal

If you already have an ant infestation and your ant control measures are not working, give us a call. Ants will almost certainly come from multiple nests, so finding and destroying one nest will have limited impact.

The goal of our treatment is to kill the queen to prevent the colony from multiplying and growing. Use a chemical spray. Ants do not die quickly, so when they return to the nest, they contaminate other ants and larvae, and eventually they all die.

Our technicians are trained to understand the signs of ant activity. This allows you to identify ant entry points and locate entry points into the main colony nest. They feed and spray these areas. The spray is also applied in and around ant trails and around windows, doors and walls. Technicians are also spraying along ant trails and around access points to nests. Treatment in warm climates can take up to two weeks to eradicate ants. In colder climates, it can take up to 6 weeks due to sporadic ant activity. Do not disturb the ants during treatment. A spike in activity may occur before the problem subsides.

If you’re dealing with an ant infestation and looking for pest removal and control in Melbourne, there are a few steps you can take. Here’s a guide to help you address the issue:

Identify the ant species: Different ant species require different approaches for control. Try to observe their behavior and appearance to determine the specific species you’re dealing with. This information can help you choose the most effective control methods.

Keep your house clean: Ants are attracted to food and water sources. Clean up spills promptly, store food in sealed containers, and regularly empty your garbage bins. Make sure to wipe down countertops and sweep floors regularly to remove any food particles. We provide the best Ant Removal Specialist Company in Melbourne

Seal entry points: Ants can enter your home through small cracks and openings. Seal any gaps or holes in your walls, windows, doors, and foundation using caulk or weather-stripping. This helps prevent ants from finding their way inside.

Remove ant trails: Ants leave behind pheromone trails that guide other ants to food sources. Clean these trails with soapy water to disrupt their communication and discourage them from returning.

Natural remedies: There are several natural remedies you can try to deter ants. These include sprinkling cinnamon, black pepper, or baby powder along ant trails or entry points. You can also create a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water to wipe down surfaces where ants are present.

Commercial baits and traps: If the infestation persists, consider using ant baits and traps available at local hardware stores. These products contain insecticides that ants carry back to their nests, effectively eliminating the entire colony.

Professional pest control: If your efforts don’t yield satisfactory results, or if the infestation is severe, it may be necessary to seek professional pest control services. Pest control companies in Melbourne have expertise in identifying ant species and implementing effective treatments.
