Our Specialised Ant Treatments

We employ a tailored approach to ant control, starting with a detailed inspection to identify the specific ant species present and the extent of the infestation. By understanding the behaviour and preferences of these ants—whether it’s the moisture-seeking pharaoh ant, the wood-boring carpenter ant, or the aggressive bull ant—we can develop a customised treatment plan. This plan utilises a combination of baiting, direct chemical treatments, and preventative measures, ensuring effective eradication and long-term protection.

Our Steps
Detailed Inspection

Identifying ant species and locating nests are crucial first steps in our process, enabling targeted treatment.

Customised Treatment Plan

We devise strategies tailored to the specific ant species and infestation severity, utilising baiting systems, insecticidal sprays, and granules.

Eco-friendly & Safe Methods

Safety is our priority; we use environmentally responsible products that are effective against ants while protecting humans and pets.

Prevention & Exclusion

Beyond eradication, we focus on long-term prevention, advising on sanitation practices and sealing entry points to deter future invasions.

Understanding Ant Infestations

Ants are attracted to food sources and moisture, making kitchens, bathrooms, and gardens prime targets for infestations. Common species like the black garden ant, carpenter ant, pharaoh ant and the infamous bull ant, each present unique challenges, from structural damage to spreading pathogens, to nasty stings.


Ant Identification and Behaviour

In the quest to maintain an ant-free environment, knowledge is your first line of defence. Several ant species, including the black garden ant, carpenter ant, pharaoh ant, and the formidable bull ant, can invade our spaces, each bringing unique challenges, so lets equip you with the education on how to keep these common pests away.

  • Black Garden Ant: Commonly found trailing around kitchens and gardens. These ants are attracted to sweet substances and can be identified by their dark colour and organised foraging trails.
  • Carpenter Ant: Recognisable by their size and preference for wood, carpenter ants can cause structural damage as they tunnel to create their nests. Unlike termites, they do not eat the wood but remove it to build their homes.
  • Bull Ant: Known for their aggressive behaviour and painful sting, bull ants are larger than typical ants and can pose a significant health risk, especially to allergic individuals. Keeping them away, can help minimise the risk.


The Purpose of Identification

Identifying the specific ant species plaguing your property is crucial. Each species has distinct habits and preferences, which means a one-size-fits-all approach to ant control often falls short. Understanding these differences enables targeted strategies that are not only more effective but also more efficient in keeping these pests at bay.

  • Food Storage: Keep food in sealed containers and clean up spills and crumbs immediately to avoid attracting ants.
  • Moisture Control: Fix leaky taps and ensure good ventilation in damp areas like bathrooms and kitchens, as ants are attracted to moisture.
  • Seal Entry Points: Inspect your home for cracks and crevices in walls, floors, and around windows and doors. Sealing these can prevent ants from entering.
  • Routine Checks: Inspect your property for signs of ant activity, especially in early spring when ants become more active. Early detection can prevent larger infestations.
