Ants are moving pests; they will travel far and wide to seek out for food. Ants can be found in different parts of the world and can cause much harm to food and properties. Flick’s pest control technicians are familiar with the behavior of different kinds of ants.
Ants are permanent nesters, which means they'll find stable environments to plant their home. This includes in the soil, in timber, under pavers, in wall cavities or roof voids, but will travel quite lengthy distances to bring food back to its nest.
During humid weather conditions, ants usually plant new nests in previously unestablished area.
You can help to reduce ant infestations by:
- Immediatly cleaning food spills
- Covering or throwing out unconsumed pet food
- Never leaving pet feeding areas with spare food
- Sealing vulnerable cracks and crevices
- Minimising the number of plants/trees that touch exterior of the house

We can provide customers with interior and external treatment options that are both safe and effective.
Interior treatment usually includes ant baits combined with attractant and poison. These baits are designed to be transferred by the worker ants and ultimately taken back to the colony where the eradication will take place.
External treatment includes localized or barrier band insecticide application. Our well trained technicians will also position a specific ant gels and granules to an ant activity area like ant trails and around the nest.
