Specialist ant control from the experts

Gold Coast Pest Services are ant specialists and offer a range of ant control treatments to get rid of even the most persistent ant problems.

Ants are annoying and difficult to control. When looking to get rid of ants, homeowners tend to turn to supermarket products. But such products only to give temporary relief, with the ants returning after a while, often in greater numbers. To get lasting control of ants you need to kill the colony by targeting the queen.

This is where ant experts can help. To achieve lasting control of ants you need to be able to identify the species, understand its behaviour and know which are the best products to use..... and many of the best products are not available in supermarkets or hardware stores.

Here at Gold Coast Pest Services, we are confident in our ant expertise - we guarantee all of our ant pest control Gold Coast treatments. If you are tearing your hair out, just give us a call...

What ant control services do we provide?

General pest control

General ant control (keeping ants out the house) is included in our general pest control treatment, which comes with a 12 month warranty. However, if you have a major infestation or have an outside ant problem, then there may be a surcharge on the general pest treatment or perhaps one of our specialist ant treatments may be a better option.

HOW WE DEAL WITH ANT PROBLEMS...

Broadly speaking, ants cause problems around the home in three different areas; inside the home, around the perimeter of the home and in the lawn.

ANTS INSIDE

Ants found inside the house maybe coming in from outside, but often they are nesting inside the house. Ants love roof voids and wall cavities where they can be warm, dry and safe! When investigating an indoor ant problem we spend time trying to locate the nest, as this can impact on our ant control measures.

Typically our indoor ant control treatments rely heavily on ant baits. Ant baits consist of a food matrix and a slow acting insecticide. Foraging ants find the bait irresistible and take it back to the nest where it is spread throughout the nest, killing the queen and the colony.

Our indoor ant treatment will also include a preventative ant treatment around the outside perimeter of the home, to prevent new ants entering.

ANTS OUTSIDE

Ants around the perimeter of buildings will often find their way inside looking for food and moisture. Some can be particularly annoying as they build their nests under paths and driveways, undermining pavers.

Control of outdoor ants often requires a combination treatment of baits and sprays. The sprays we use are special non-repellent sprays designed for maximum ant control. The non-repellent nature means that ants walk across treated areas without realising the insecticide is there. Not only does it kill the ants that come into direct contact (within a few hours), but it also gets transferred from one ant to another, maximising its effect and potentially killing the whole colony.

Ant baits are used to target the queen and larvae back in the nest, essential to eliminate the colony and get lasting control. The ant bait we use will depend on the ant species present.

Our outdoor ant treatments come with a 6 month warranty.

LAWN ANTS

GREEN ANT TREATMENTS

Green ants (or Green headed ants) can deliver a very painful sting, that can itch for days afterwards. More seriously, some people suffer life threatening allergic reactions that require immediate medical attention. If you have Green headed ants in your lawn, you should certainly take action, especially if children or pets are around.

Our Green headed ant control programs involved treated the affected area with a granular bait, which is very effective in controlling the colony. Once your property is clear of Green headed ants, it should remain clear for a number of months. Gold Coast Pest Services are pleased to offer a 6 month warranty.

However, with the likelihood that neighbouring properties also have Green headed ant infestations, treatments once or twice a year may be required to keep your property ant free.

FUNNEL ANT TREATMENTS

Although funnel ants are rarely seen, they build their extensive nests underground, where they feed on aphids attached to the grass roots. The results of their excavations can be seen in their unsightly funnels on the soil surface, often appearing overnight after rain.

Underground they are undermining the whole soil structure, making the ground uneven,  which can result in damage to lawn mowers and injuries (twisted ankles and more). Badly effected lawns will detract from the value or your home and so it's best to have the lawn treated as soon as they start to appear.

Our funnel ant treatments require treatment of the whole lawn. This kills the colonies and leaves some residual insecticide in the soil, to prevent new ants moving in. This is a very effective treatment and we provide a 12 month warranty (but can last much longer).

Lawn treatments for Green head ants and funnel ants are based on the area of lawn to be treated, so when you phone for a quote, please have an estimate of the area to be treated (m²).
