External Ant Treatments
Wondering how to get rid of ants from around your home?
APC Coomera has been using the highest quality, safest and industry leading products available to treat ant infestations for many of our wonderful clients on the Gold Coast & Brisbane.
If you notice an increasing number of ants outside your home, it is only a matter of time before they venture inside. Ant pressure builds from the outside in and a change in the weather can push ants inside.
Over the counter products have a “knock-down” effect, which means they can only get rid of the ants you can see in that very moment, but do not treat the rest of the colony.
How Much Does Our Ant Control Treatments Cost?
The cost of your treatment will depend on the size of your property.
Most external ant treatments range in cost from $129 to $180 for residential blocks up to 800sqm
How We Get Rid of Ants
The best way to control ants is with a treatment process that has a transfer effect.
The products we use take advantage of the way that ants live. Ants groom and help one another, and often eat their own dead, so the products we use to treat your ant problem make the ants do some of the work for us.
The close quarters that ants keep makes our treatment approach very efficient because it impacts the ants who weren’t immediately affected by treatment in addition to those who were present.
3 Key Processes To Our Ant Treatment Process
First, our technician inspects outside for active ant trails and harborage points.
Second, we use premium non-repellent transfer products to external areas of your yard & home. These ants will then carry on with their daily activities while they infect other ants in their colony.
Third, is the use of polymer baits to other areas if required to help ensure further colony control.
What You Need To Know About Our Ant Treatments
We always recommend a full internal and external ant treatment to keep your home ant-free!
If the ants were inside your home, the best practice is to maintain treatments every 12 months to prevent reoccurrence.
If you are experiencing heavy ant pressure, we may recommend follow-up external treatments at six month intervals to maintain ant control.
We use multiple products to make our treatments more effective over time (and use different products inside than we do outside).
Our equipment ensures we are able to get the job done safely (for our team, for you, your family, and your pets).
We will provide recommendations of things you can do around your home to decrease the chances of ants becoming a problem again.
You may still see ants for up to 6 weeks after treatment, as the treatment works its way through the entire colony. After this time we ask you to contact us should ant activity not cease so we can reassess and treat as required.
