Ants are one of the most common pests in and around the home, they are generally found in nests in the garden, however they often move indoors. They can potentially nest in walls and ceilings, causing problems with electrical wiring.
There are many different species of ants that cause problems in even the cleanest of homes. Because they have differing food preferences, their identification is important to determine the best control procedure.
What you can do to help:
Clean up all food left in and around house.
Notify our technician of any ant nests or problem areas that you are aware of.
Cut trees and shrubs away from perimeter of house.
Cover fish ponds, fish tanks (turn off filter/ heater at power point) and food.
Please be ready to leave as soon as our technician arrives.
Although we cannot guarantee that every ant will be eliminated annual baiting and spraying affected areas keeps them under control.
