Ant Removal

Why get rid of Ants?

Ants can be more than just a nuisance pest. Therefore, they will not just invade kitchens and spoil food they often damage plug sockets, light switches, light fittings, and other electronics.

The main culprits are White-Footed Ants as they regularly make themselves at home in your walls and roof cavity. Although not all people can smell ants, some will notice frequent waves of their pungent odour when ants are active or nesting inside structural cavities.

How to be free of Ants

For an effective ant control treatment it is important to first identify the species of ant and the extent of the infestation. We’ll ensure your pets are kept safe at all times. We then apply specialist baits and an insecticide spray used to place a protective barrier around the perimeter of your home.

This will keep the ants away and kill off the colony. Because Ants are very resilient a free strategic follow-up application will be provided for complete knockout and lasting results.

When ants are rampant inside it is often due to bad weather, low food availability, or escape from repellent chemicals outside. When required we will do a repellent treatment inside your home to push them back out.

Most importantly, we provide you with specific information and support based on our observations to reduce future infestations and maintain the treatment to keep you ant free.

White-footed ants and Argentine ants are the most common species found inside and outside homes in Wellington and the Hutt Valley.

White-footed ants; these are black ants and appear larger than other species. This ant species commonly nests in the structural cavities of houses and can be seen marching in trails down foundation walls, heading to gardens to feed on plants, like lemon trees and camellias.

Argentine ants; these are fast-moving reddish-brown ants. Most often nesting outside under pavement or in retaining walls. They will form large trails to invade houses when their scouts find any food high in sugar or protein.

The highest ant populations are in Miramar and the Hutt valley, although ants are prevalent throughout Wellington, Porirua, Kapiti, and Wairarapa. Ant populations are growing in the Wellington region as a result of warmer weather and recent mild winters.

Ants can be more than just a nuisance pest. They invade kitchens and spoil food. Although not all people can smell ants, some will notice frequent waves of their irritating odour when ants are active inside or nesting in structural cavities.

On top of this, they often damage plug sockets, light switches, light fittings, and other electronics.

The main culprits are White-Footed ants as they regularly make themselves at home inside your walls and roof cavity.

Ants are very resilient, although the current infestation and the colony has been destroyed, there will be new populations of ants which are likely to appear again over time. There are actions you can take to reduce the appeal of your home to ants, and preventative treatments will be more effective, and easier than dealing with a full infestation when a new population moves in.

Ants are unlikely to disappear without treatment. This answer will be different for everyone but the considerations are the same. How much do you want to remove ants from your home? How much time and money do you have to dedicate to this task? And how certain you are you will be able to get a result based on the knowledge and product you have at hand? Take a look at the DIY question below to get an idea of what it will take.

To get the best relief from ants a professional treatment really is going to get the quickest and longest lasting results, and those results are guaranteed. 

DIY ant products can certainly be effective if applied correctly, although in my experience they are often not applied well, with baits only ever stunting the ant activity rather than eliminating it, and often makes the infestation worse with repellents pushing ants inside the home and trapping them there. Poorly applied baits, repellents, and insecticides also have adverse effects to health (poisoning of pets) and environment.

Even when applied in a professional manner DIY ant products will usually be effective for a shorter length of time than a professional treatment. In my experience DIY methods need frequent reapplication due to the lower volume of insecticide present in their solutions and where repellent properties are needed the common DIY products generally are not strong enough. It is not uncommon to get called to a do an ant control treatment where someone has spent a lot of time, effort, and money on DIY treatments with less than satisfactory results.

Safety is always our top priority with treatments. Some of the measures we take with ant control are ensuring children and pets are excluded from treatment zones until product is dry, carefully placing baits only in non-accessible areas, and not using more product than is necessary which is taking care of our environment too. We will provide you with clear direction on this as part of our safety-first approach.
