These Opportunistic Feeders Will Eat Just About Anything.

Ants travel widely in search for food and follow trails they have established to the food source which attracts many other ants indoors.

Most would think ants are harmless compared to other pests such as mosquitoes and rats. Although black or garden ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, they do pose a hygiene risk and may contaminate food as they crawl through unsanitary areas and cause symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps.

​​Signs of Ant Infestation:
Look Up For These!

Live ants

The most obvious sign of an infestation is seeing large numbers of live ants within your premises.

Ant pathways

Ant trails inside and outside your premise is a big red flag! Some ant species will even lay down a pheromone trail to a food source which leads the colony to the food source: your house.

Ant nest

Ant nests look like a small pile of soil or dirt. Some species also like making their home inside walls or other quiet, dark places.

How to Prevent an Ant Infestation?

The first course of action to prevent an ant infestation is to cut any available food sources, and get rid of them by:

Cover ALL food and drinks

You don’t know where they’ve been before crawling on our food.

Clean, Clean, Clean

Kitchen tops, sinks, food and liquid spillage, food debris from under kitchen appliances such as bread toasters, food crumbs, debris, grease and spills after a meal, and pet’s food that’s not been eaten straight away should be cleaned up immediately.

Store tightly

Store tightly your food supplies and ingredients inside sealed containers.

In the garden

Keep all rubbish bins tightly sealed.

Tips for ant proofing

Prevent them from entering your homes by sealing cracks and crevices in doors, window frames and expansion joints, and remove any greenery touching your walls from the outside as these act as a bridge for the ants to come in.

DIY Methods & The Time To Seek For Professional Ant Control

Vinegar as a repellent

As ants are repelled by strong scents, wiping up your counters with a vinegar and water solution can deter them for a while as it derails their sense of direction. However, once the vinegar smell is gone, ants are likely to come back.

While this DIY method can deal with a small ant problem, if you are facing a persistent ant issue in your premises, it’s the time to call us. We’ll deal with your larger or multiple ant infestations.
