Thanks to the great Australian outdoors, ants are an accepted part of our lifestyle. A day at the beach, a picnic in the sun, you can expect to be joined by a few ants. Therefore, even when you see ants in your home, you’re not too worried. Annoyed yes, but your first thought probably isn’t to call pest control. However, an ant infestation in your home can be more serious than you think and is best dealt with using A1 Professional Pest Control.
Why you don’t want ants in your home
Ants can breed very quickly. Just one Queen ant can lay up to 300,000 eggs every few days. So, it’s best not to let ants become too comfortable in your home. You don’t want ants in your home because they can lead to a lot of food wastage. Packages in your pantry you thought were sealed can let in ants easily, and the whole lot will need to be thrown away.
Professional pest control solutions for ants
Since an ant infestation can be hard to identify, it is best to have a professional inspection. An A1 Professional Canberra pest control expert will be able to identify the signs of ants and guide you on the best way to professionally control the infestation.
Treatment of the ant infestation may include liquids, powder or granule products to kill the ants. Baits and a chemical barrier should also be used to stop ants coming back into your home. If you’ve ever tried to get rid of ants from your home, you know that if you miss just one ant or one part of their trail, they can be back as soon as you turn around. That’s why it is important to use professional pest control solutions as soon as you see ants in your home. This will ensure the Queen ant and the entire nest are destroyed. You can then be sure your home and your family will remain pest free.
