How to find ants infestation?

To find the ant's colonies you have to follow the ant pathways.

Ants are social insects that leave behind them a trace of a chemical called pheromone to drive other ants to the food source and back to the colony. Although the ants, in general, have a short lifespan but the colony lifetime can be quite long.

Check for ant activity near the doors, windows, carpet edges, garden areas and all over the kitchen surface for worker ants and entry points. When you find the ants and their food source, just follow them and you will reach their nest.

If you believe that you have a Carpenter ant infestation, this species is nocturnal so, the best time to try and find their nest locations is at night. You will see them emerging from the damaged wooden area in your property as well from wood piled outdoors and water damaged wood.

Meanwhile, the Argentine ants travel long distances for food, which makes finding their nest a slightly more difficult job. The Argentine ants drive other species away from the area.

Coastal Brown Ants

The Coastal Brown ant is a very invasive type of ant. They create large colonies in your property because they have multiple queens.

Their usual habitat is on dry soil, lawn, pavement and bricks. Their nests are usually easy to spot since they have mounds on the top at the entrance.

As soon as you discover the colony that is causing the ant infestation at your home make sure you get in touch with us to provide you with our services of ant control in Pakenham.

What can cause an ant infestation?

Much like humans, ants are really into food. Unlike humans, their feeding preferences are much wider than ours.

Depending on their breed, most species of ants may eat from insects to wood. Which makes them a guest who is easy to please.

Of course, food products are their main preference. They are particularly attracted to sweet foods and will find their way to your pantry.

The best way to prevent them from reaching your kitchen is to clean up immediately after meals and, more importantly, right after any spillage from liquid foods. Make sure you also clean under your appliances, small pieces of food always end up underneath your fridge or stove.

Make sure that you seal your food inside airtight containers. Store food in the pantry or the fridge.

If you have pets, don't let their food in the bowls throughout the night. The pet food will also attract the ants, and although ants are not harmful to dogs and cats, your furry friend may not like the "extra flavour" in their meal.

At the first sign of a pest ants infestation on your domicile, seek our excellent service and our ant control specialists will be more than happy to help you.

More ways to prevent an ant infestation

As we said before, ants are not only attracted to food. They will also find food sources in garden vegetation, dead insects, corpses - for example, a dead rat - amongst many other things.

So if you are keen on preventing them from creating their nest directly inside your property nor feasting on your rubbish bins, you can also include these extra steps on your prevention list:

  • Trim and prune the plants in your yard, garden beds, and dispose of the offcuts properly;
  • Seal up cracks and crevices inside and outside of your house;
  • Keep the wheelie bins clean and tidy. Empty your indoor rubbish bins frequently and keep them always covered and clean;
  • Check for small animal carcasses that may end up in your yard due to weather or being poisoned by neighbours.

With just a little upkeep you can prevent and control ants from becoming a major problem. And in case you are looking for more effective solutions to prevent an ant infestation in your home, we can definitely help you with our great service.
