Ant Control & Treatment Melbourne

We provide ant control and treatment services in Melbourne by experts with over 10 years of experience. We not only help remove ants but also get rid of their colonies by eliminating their food sources and nest, ensuring permanent treatment from your building. While there are over 4,000 species of ants in Australia and most don’t cause problems to human and properties, sometimes  when they find a new food source in your building or there is an unexpected event that causes them to migrate, they can infest the place and can become challenging to deal with. Hire us today to help get rid of ants once and for all.

How Does The Infestation Work?

During an unexpected event that causes the ants to migrate or leave the nest in search for food, worker ants (those responsible for finding food for the colony) will leave the nest in search of food or safety, which can end up being at your house or building. Once they identify the place and path to travel, they will create pheromone trails back to the nest for others to start following them.

As the second batch of worker ants start following the pheromone trail that the first batch left along the path, they also leave more pheromone trail behind, enforcing it to become stronger and attract more ants. 

In case of finding a new food source, the worker ants will transport the food back to the nest to feed the colony, including the queen, larvae and other workers. In case of migration, they will carry the larvae, eggs, and queens out from their original nest and transport to the new place. This keeps on repeating and until you know it, they’re all over your place!

Ants are highly social insects with efficient communication and cooperation, allowing them to quickly exploit food source, transport and establish large colonies, which can make infestations challenging to control.

So if you’re struggling to deal with them yourself, get in touch with us today.

Elimination Tips

There are many ant species in Australia such Argentine ants, Black garden ants and Bull ants, and each has their own characteristics, nesting sites, feeding preferences, and habits.  Although eliminating each specie may require a bit of a different strategy, in general, here are some of the steps you can use to treat and control ant infestation yourself:

  1. Eliminate the food source from your home and clean the infestation area.
  2. Locate the ant trails to find where they are entering the building and follow them to the nest if possible.
  3. Use natural deterrents such as vinegar, lemon juice or peppermint oil and spray it along the entry points and trails.
  4. If natural deterrents don’t work, you may opt for chemical insecticidal sprays. Make sure to wear all the safety gears first and keep your pet away from the area.
  5. Combine the method with diatomaceous earth by sprinkling it where ants are present. This dehydrates and kills them upon contact.
