Ants – D-Tec Pest Solutions

Have you had enough of those pesky Ants running around your home? Unfortunately surface spray only kills the ones on the surface. Surface Sprays doesn’t solve the problem as most colonies/nests are underground.

Firstly Ants are not only a general nuisance but they may present a health risk. For instance they mechanically carrying disease organisms on their bodies. They also carry it in their digestive tract that can cause dysentery, smallpox and a variety of pathogenic bacteria, including salmonella.

We have many different species in Australia, the most commonly known is the carpenter ant, bull, green-headed, sugar, jumper, meat and green tree ants. It’s the green ants that can actually inject venom. The jumper ant can cause a severe allergic reaction. Other ants such as the meat ants and green tree ants don’t sting but bite and spray a formic acid into the wound. Then we have those pesky black ones that make mounds and nests in the soil. You can find these Ants in timber, under pavers, in wall cavities, around skirting boards and in roof voids.

SO HOW CAN YOU PREVENT ANTS

Eliminate food sources for them to eat:
– Put food in air tight containers.
– Clean up crumbs.
– Sweep/vacuum/mop to remove any extra food particles on the ground.
– Wash dirty dishes straight away.
– Keep rubbish sealed.
– Check your pets bowl for leftover food.

Eliminate water sources from Ants:

– Fix any leaky taps.
– Check for leaks in irrigation systems.
– Check for any pooling of water anywhere.
– Wipe down your sinks.

HOW TO TREAT FOR ANTS

As mentioned the surface sprays do just that they kill the pests on the surface but not treat the actual problem. As ant colonies contain over a million you will never fix getting rid of those pesky critters that way.

When D-Tec Pest Solutions come out to treat the Technician does an analysis of the species of ants/activity patterns. They can apply a method of control with the use of chemical to the nesting site and form a residual barrier between the nest and food source.
