Effectively removing or controlling these annoying pests
Ants set up permanent colony nests with a wide variety of habitats usually found in moist and secure crevices, in timber, under pavers and nest in the walls which vary in size depending on their species and age. Of the thousands of different species of ants in Australia, only a few are considered pests in and around our buildings.
Ants can undermine pavers and the root zone of plants. They can damage and short circuit electrical components with the ability to cause fires and they can transfer viral, bacterial, plant and fungal diseases. Ants may travel large distances in search of food sources, usually being your kitchen, in order to supply the colony. This is when they become a real nuisance as they completely infest the area in large numbers.
Although ants have comparatively powerful jaws, and they do bite, the pain comes from the hypodermic sting or from the venom sprayed from the tip of the abdomen over the area bitten. Large painful welts are almost instantaneous and allergic reactions can cause deaths.
