How do you deal with ants in your home?

When ants infest the home, they can pose some surprising risks. When you book with us for your pest prevention or treatment, we’ll give you tailored advice for your situation. But in the meantime, these tips can help.

Identifying Ants

Ants in the house

Black house ants

2.5 to 3 mm long with a shiny black body. They’re attracted to moisture and sweet food and may find their way to your kitchen garbage bin.

Australian Bull Ant

Bull ants

18 to 20 mm in length and usually red or black. These ants are very aggressive and can be dangerous for pets or small children playing in backyards.

Carpenter Ants Working

Carpenter ants

Often mistaken for termites, the carpenter is known to damage wooden objects, including housing materials. They come in a variety of sizes and colours.

ANT BEHAVIOUR

Ants are colony-dwellers, which is why they can become a problem—there’s so many of them! They are always looking for food, and once a worker has located a good source, many more of these pests will soon arrive.

With their ability to create nests almost anywhere, their colonies can become disruptive. So whether it’s between pavers beneath the washing line, inside your roof void, or beneath your veranda, it’s essential to ensure they don’t get too close to the home.

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY ANTS

When it comes to destructive pests, termites are number one – causing over $100 million dollars of damage to Australian homes every year. But eating away at the timber in your house isn’t the only problem they cause. There are other concerns around termites, including:

  • Allergies and asthma
  • Increase and spreading of mould
  • Damage to electrical wiring

Tips to prevent an ant infestation

ant infestation

Ants may not seem to be much of a problem until you start to see them. Then you will quickly notice trails of ants, some of which may stay around long after you remove whatever initially attracted them.

If you have a problem with ants, give us a call, and we can help remove them and prevent them from coming back. But in the meantime, there are some strategies you can implement to prevent ants from infesting at all.

Remove their food and water

Ants are attracted to homes because there is a good source of nutrition there. To stop them arriving, you should:

  • Immediately wipe up spilled liquids
  • Store food in sealed containers and in the fridge
  • Clean food surfaces thoroughly
  • Remove pet food and wash the bowl once your pet has finished eating

Seal entry points

You’ll be surprised to find the small cracks and crevices that ants are navigating through to reach your kitchen. So that ants can’t get inside, you can:

  • Follow any ant trails along the floor, wall, and ceiling, and seal up the gap they are coming through
  • Check for gaps around window frames, door frames, and power outlets, and seal them
