Ants are everywhere. Depending on which source you go to, Australia may have up to 3000 species of ants! In Australia, we have 109 known species of ants, and a whole lot of other uncertain species of ants. And while they are mostly annoying rather than a health risk, there are some species of ants that can cause serious problems for people who are sensitive to their stings.
Most of the time, if ants are problematic, it’s because they are foraging either in your buildings or in your yard. They can be especially problematic for enthusiastic gardeners, because ants will farm aphids. Aphids are a major food source for common ants. Some species can be damaging if they are attracted to the magnetic fields produced by your wiring, in which case they will attack the wires.
In South Australia, we have a range of ants besides the common, black, household ants you’re used to seeing. Ants will come out when it’s warm.
Our Pest Control Process
Residential & domestic pest control identification
You’ll be prone to termites if you have water pooling or leaking around your house. They need a damp, humid environment.
Like most animals, rodents become a problem when you’ve given them a source of food. They’re simply after something to eat.
Not many people like cockroaches. This might be because cockroaches can infest even the cleanest of houses.
If you have common black house spiders, there is a good chance you will soon have white-tail spiders too.
For really effective ant control, we recommend a program of inspections to monitor and bait further instances.
Fleas are becoming less common in households as flea control for cats and dogs is simple and effective.
Birds are typically an annoyance rather than a danger to you or your property. We will remove them.
Bees can form swarms. If you annoy them or hurt them, they will sting you. We will remove them.
But flies are not just annoying. They also carry disease. They will infect your food with disease picked up elsewhere.
