Ant Pest Facts
Ants are social insects that are mostly located in soil, wood or rocks. They live in colonies and are common intruders in and around buildings. Ants seek out walls, roofs, voids, kitchens, lawns and gardens and decaying wood. Once an Ant colony discovers a source of food, the number of ants in that area can increase exponentially as the workers get busy.
If your home or yard has become a food source for a colony of ants, it’s time to call Zero Termite and Pest! Different species of ants look for different food sources. This is where our knowledge helps us to seek out and control your ant invasion. Whilst most ants don’t really cause real damage they can become an unwanted pest in your home, garden or industrial building.
Our Technicians at Zero Termite and Pest use their knowledge and experience to recognise those ant species that are destructive and those that can inflict painful stings. Maintaining your home and yard in conjunction with ethical pest control will help restrict any future invasions.
Do I Need Ant Pest Control?
Ants love a sunny climate and the Sunshine Coast the perfect environment to thrive in! Often, a single ant sighting is nothing to worry about. But, if you notice a continually increasing amount, it’s only a matter of time before they make you house their home!
Keep an eye out for these ant infestation signs:
Live Ants: If you find a large number of ants around your home, especially in and around where you prepare food, you may have an ant problem.
Ant Pathways: Many ant species will leave a pheromone trail for other ants in their colony to follow to find food, thus making it a sure sign of an ant infestation
Ant nests: Often unassuming, these small piles of dirt house a much larger problem below its surface, that will need to be taken care of soon!
Debris: When ants build colonies they will often discard any waste and debris, including dead ants, in order to make room for the colony. If you notice a dark sand-like substance, this is an indication that there is an ant colony nearby.
Why do I have Ants?
Ant infestations are never welcome, however, for many households, this is the reality.
Below are some of the reasons you may have an ant problem:
Food: Ants look for easy sources of food, making your kitchen the ideal location for an infestation. A less obvious, but still easily accessible food source for ants is greasy surfaces. Ensure you regularly clean the kitchen area and clean food that leaves a sticky residue. Store food in an airtight container and fruit in the fridge to avoid an influx of ants!
Sticky Garbage: Ants have no problem getting into rubbish bins to get to your leftover scraps. Much like greasy surfaces- sticky, sugary residues from spilt drinks and cans make for an ideal food source for ants and a potential infestation. To avoid an ant infestation, make sure to clean your rubbish bins regularly. Where possible, throw away your food scraps in secure bags to avoid an infestation.
Decaying wood: Moist and decaying wood makes for a great carpenter-ant hideout and nest. Always clear away and replace any damaged and rotting wood to eliminate possible nesting areas for ants as well as termites.
