What to do When Ants Become Pests

indoor ant infestation

Dating back millions of years, ants have had an important part of natural ecosystems (e.g., aerating soil and leaf matter in our yards by foraging). Considering its tiny size, the ant is one of the world’s most strongest insects, capable of carrying objects 50 times their own body weight and with over 3000 ant species in Australia alone, it would be impossible for you to never encounter an ant species or two.

Ants feed mostly on organic matter but will feast on any accessible food source like crumbs on kitchen floors, even the envelop glue found in our letter boxes and can be difficult to get rid of.

In reality though these hard working insects are troublesome pests in our Gold Coast, Brisbane, Ipswich and Sunshine Coast homes when they make their way in looking for shelter, food and water. We have all come home to find an ant trail in the hundreds making their way across the floor or up windowsills, taking food to an exit point somewhere else.

Unleashing a can of household insect spray on the ant trail can temporarily fix the problem, however without a professional pest control treatment it is likely ants will return. Ants can mess with household electronics, set off motion detector alarms and lead to spoilage of food.

Add to the mix ants that are capable of inflicting very painful bites like Fire ants, having a professional ant treatment by GC Pest Control is vital in keeping your home and family safe from not the just the annoying species of ants but also the more dangerous.

GC Pest Control technicians will thoroughly inspect the property before undertaking an Ant Control Treatment to ensure effective results. Generally, the Ant Control Treatment consists of applying an ant bait gel, liquid sprays and insecticidal dusts. The ant bait gel is applied to areas where ants are known to be and along ant trails. The ants feed on the bait and take it back to and kill off the nest. The liquid spray is applied to all external entry points, around doors and windows and along internal floor corners. The insecticidal dust is applied to the roof void and cracks and crevices where ants are known to be.

If ants are becoming problematic and difficult to eradicate at your Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane or Ipswich homes, call GC Pest Control today to book in an ant control treatment so you never have to come home to annoying ants again.

I called GC Pest Control when I saw a rat in my garage, they answered on a Sunday and booked me in for the next day. They were extremely thorough and affordable. I am pleased to say I haven't seen or heard of any rats since! Thanks GC Pest Control, I'll be recommending you to my friends.
