Why opt for professional ant control

From structural damage to food contamination, ants can be far more than a nuisance! Killing the worker ants you see out in the open will do little to prevent an infestation. Their chemical markers remain and other ants will just come to take their place.

Dealing with an ant infestation requires more than brute strength. It might seem simple to draw a few lines of ant chalk around the areas you notice ants the most. However, it wouldn’t eliminate any ants - only disrupt their pheromone trail. The effect would last a week or two - long enough for you to forget about the problem. Unfortunately, the ants are bound to come back.

Fantastic Pest Control has the know-how and experience to solve this problem for good. With tactical precision, our ant eradication experts go straight for the jugular and remove the source of all your grief - the queen. It's smooth sailing from there.

Frequently Asked Questions

What caused my ant problem?

Ants would literally eat anything, so any food leftovers are bound to attract them. Whether you left pizza in the open rubbish bin, spaghetti in the fridge, or an open snack in the kitchen cabinet, as long as it exerts any sort of scent, you can be certain that, sooner or later, it will attract ants. They are especially fond of sugary foods, so anything sweet works like an ant magnet.

How can I deal with the infestation?

The best way to deal with an infestation is to remove the reason for the infestation. Ants came to your home in search of food. This means that you should put food leftovers in sealed containers. You should clean spillages immediately. Take out the rubbish regularly, especially if there are food leftovers inside. Ants have a very keen sense of smell. If they can’t smell food, they will assume it’s not there. This will deprive them of a reason to stay.

What’s a natural ant repellent?

Ants communicate mostly through their olfactory receptors or, in other words, their sense of smell. This means strong scents are their natural enemies. They mask their pheromonal pathways and block signals they send each other. Peppermint oil, citrus oil, cinnamon, and vinegar are perfect for this job. Apply them around possible ant entry points or pathways. You should notice a change in their behaviour soon.

Are ants dangerous?

Some species can be. Australia has some pretty aggressive ant species, such as the bull ant. They have huge mandibles and their bite is extremely painful. They are also quite big in size, so you shouldn’t have any trouble identifying them. To be certain, it’s best to keep your distance and call in professionals.
