Of all the species of ants found in Australia, only the black ant is commonly known as a pest. Ants are attracted by the smell of food, and often build underground nests close to a perceived food source. If increasing numbers of ants are seen moving across your home or property, it is well worth setting up chemical barriers to force these creatures to set up elsewhere and search other areas for their food.
Common traps and sprays are often ineffective against ants, as queens can simply lay more eggs to compensate for the lost worker ants. In addition, a chemical defence that is only partially complete could simply reroute ants to another entrance to your home, slightly delaying them but not resulting in a long-term solution.
Ants should be kept out of every house, and the only way to be sure about doing so is to call in the experts. At ABC Pest Control Newcastle, our team is fully equipped to deal with ants and other pests that may be trying to enter your home. We specialise in setting up an invisible, long-term chemical barrier that ants will not be able to breach, so that you can rest easy in the knowledge that your kitchen and household is yours alone, and no longer shared with a hungry army of ants raiding the cabinets.
We are also prepared to advise you about proper food storage and safety techniques, to maintain good food hygiene to keep you healthy and to keep all manner of pests away for as long as possible. We can also show you how to repel ants even from entry points that are not blocked by chemicals.
We at ABC Pest Control Newcastle are committed to bringing you quality service to keep your property (and your mind) clear of pests and other nuisances. For fast and courteous service from our inspection team, give us a call today.
