Ant treatments

We provide ant and pest control services to address a variety of ant problems.

There are approximately 3,000 species of ants in Australia which nest and form ant colonies in locations such as wall cavities and enclosed spaces.

Australian ants are generally considered a nuisance pest, but can also cause some structural damage, plant damage and spread disease via manual transmission, much like a cockroach.

From black house ants to coastal brown ants, carpenter ants, and green headed ants – we have the ant control solution for your ant problem.

Our team has specialised knowledge to address your ant problems, and provide you with the best solutions.

There are several options and methods used to control ants. Some use non-repellent insecticide or granular ant baits but baiting can be a relatively slow procedure. If you try to treat the ant problem with store-bought spray, it may give you some short term relief, but it will not stop ants from coming back again and again.

Different ant species may require different treatments but, following a thorough inspection and ant treatment assessment, our qualified technicians will know exactly which ant treatments and ant control program will work for you.

To manage an entire ant infestation, we recommend an integrated pest management program from Envirotechnics.

Ants are particularly attracted to sweet foods and food sources such as rubbish bins. It doesn’t take much to turn a small ant colony into a total ant infestation!
