5 Steps to Successful Ant Control

  • Inspection
  • Identification
  • Recommendations
  • Treatment
  • Evaluation

Our technician will first assess the property to plan the best way to control the ants. Treatment may involve dusting the roof and subfloor space; perimeter barrier spraying home, patios and garden beds, and perhaps also using ant baits or ant granules. Cavities around doors and windows will be treated as these are common ant trail areas. Internal treatment usually involves light spot spraying to skirting boards etc where ants are trailing with a safe chemical and dusting into cracks/crevices, sometimes around tap fittings and areas where activity is occurring. Every effort is made to locate and destroy the nest. We use the latest Ant product inside your home where often only a few liters of spray will control the ant nest. Sustainable pest management targeting specific areas with minimal chemical!

You may see ants die soon after they come into contact with the treatment. Many die as a result of Loyal Pest Control directly spraying the ants on the day. However, it may take up to 3 weeks to gain full control. It is impossible to rid your whole property of all ants and you should expect to see some come and go in and around the building after the treatment. They can walk 20-30ft before dying; our aim is to keep them under control inside.
