Ant control can be difficult in Springfield Lakes however there are some things you need to know that will help you keep their behavior under control:

Food
Ants can get into even the smallest cracks when searching for water, food, and/or sweet things in the kitchen.

Colony Size
A colony can contain thousands of ants, and when colonies are threatened, they can quickly dismantle and relocate.

Colony Life
A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants can live for seven years and the queen can live for 15 years.

Following The Trail
Once the ants find the source of food, they leave an invisible chemical trail containing pheromones to follow.

Nests
They can nest anywhere in your home or work; in lawns, walls, logs, foundations, and even concrete.

DIY
Most ant control that you can do yourself only kills the ants you see and is ineffective as a long-term solution.

Ant Prevention Tips

Long-term, successful ant control requires more than just a surface spray. At Springfield Lakes Pest Services, we use the latest products containing repellent, non-repellent liquid pesticides, fungicides, and pesticide powders, feeds, and granules. Some things you can do are;

Clean up any food and drink spills immediately.
Rinse bottles and packaging before putting it in the recycling bin.
Keep the lids on food containers closed tight.
Pack pet food away at night and avoid feeding pets outside.
Fill cracks around doors and windows and keep pipes clean.

Our Process

Our Springfield Lakes Pest Service technicians will first evaluate the property to plan the best way to control the ants. Depending on the design of the building, roof, lower floor area, environment and garden beds will help determine what treatment will be used. Dust, spray, granules and ant feeds/cafes are some formulations used in ant control.

Internal treatment usually involves spot spraying on skirting boards, etc., where ant traces are found and sweeping cracks/slits, etc.

Ant Cafes have been very successful in the last few years, where we’ve controlled the entire nest with just a few ml of feed. Every effort is made to find and destroy the nest.

Springfield Lakes Pest Services uses BASF, FMC & BAYER’s newest ant products at home. Here you can control the anthill frequently with just a few litres of spray.

Sustainable pest management in Springfield Lakes targeting specific areas with minimal chemicals!

After-Service Warranty

Our Springfield Lakes Pest Services technician will supply and install an ant café containing liquid ant feed (3 to 6 ml) inside the building. If the ants reappear, slide the ant cage near the trail, they must disappear within 1-2 weeks. The feed is very effective and aims to destroy the nests. The feed is ideal for use in sensitive interiors, clear and odorless. It can also be placed externally in strategic areas.

If you have any ongoing ant problems inside, call Springfield Lakes Pest Services, but please wait 3 weeks after each treatment or visit. Springfield Lakes Pest Services also takes time to clean up after the job is done. If you still see some ants here and there, they might just need ant feed filling.

Regular Maintenance

Ants are very unpredictable. The reappearance site will depend on the many conditions including site conditions and weather conditions. Remember, we can’t destroy nature, and there will always be a few ants around your property.

You will find that ants typically die right after they came into contact with the treatment, however, it may take up to 3 weeks for full control to be gained. While it’s not possible to get rid of all ants, we do recommend you are patient after the treatment as they can easily walk 10 metres before they die. Our primary goal is to keep them under control inside your home.
