Ants are social insects that live in more or less permanent nests. Colony sizes vary for different ants and are mostly located in soil, wood and amongst rocks. In relation to their feeding habits, ants may be predators, or scavengers.
Typically, ants have 3 clearly defined body segments: head, thorax and abdomen. Ants undergo a complete metamorphosis during their development. The development from egg stage to adulthood may require from 6 weeks up to very long periods, depending on the species, food availability and other factors.
What to do
Effective control of ants often relies on a knowledge of their foraging and nesting habits. By following trails, the location of the ant nest may be determined. Hitman pest control specialists will apply direct treatment to the nests where possible and this will provide the best long term results.
Hitman technicians are ant treatment specialists. They not only treat ants but they give a 12 month warranty period. This means that if ants re-infest your home, the technician will retreat the problem areas free of charge. To help combat ant problems which are prevalent in Brisbane, Gold, Coast, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and Caboolture, the technicians also leave ant dust for the client to use in places such as kitchens and bathrooms.
