Ant Control Penrith

Ant control in Penrith

General Information

Sydney homes & businesses are very regularly invaded by a number of pest ant species. Though they are small, ants transfer various bacteria and germs and can contaminate cooking utensils and food items. Leaving an ant infestation untreated will mean that the infestation grows and it will be very difficult to control it effectively.

The fact is that ant colonies can billow within the shortest possible time and before you know it, you will have ants crawling all round the place. They can nest in roof spaces, walls, electrical equipment and wiring, down lights etc.

  • Brown ants tend to invade bathroom and kitchen areas and will also be found in pantries. They seem to appear all of a sudden and even if you clean them up you will find that even more appear in the same place
  • Black ants are generally found in homes- mostly in kitchen spaces as they are very attracted to sweet foods. These too nest in roof voids and walls
  • Coastal Brown Ants nest within garden areas and buildings, but tare found almost everywhere and not just in coastal areas. These are quite common in properties across Sydney’s Western Suburbs.
  • Argentine Ants are very small brown ants that are a very invasive species and are found in nests in homes & buildings, largely in the cooler months. In the summer, they start spreading out in very large numbers and will occupy gardens, compost bins and pot plants. They are also very commonly found in rubbish bins, on excrement or dead animals

Facts about Ants in Australia

  • Since ants are very tiny, they can enter any space through the smallest of cracks and crevices. They seek water, greasy or sweet foods in storeroom or pantry areas
  • Ants leave a chemical trail that is invisible. It contains pheromones that other ants from the colony follow once the food source has been located
  • These pests will nest anywhere and everywhere in the home, walls, gardens, tree stumps, and under building foundations. The colonies can number upto 300,000-500,000, & whole colonies can actually uproot & relocate quickly if they are threatened
  • A colony can manage to live for a relatively long time. Worker ants might live 7 years, & the queen might live for as long as 15-years.
