Professional pest control gives you the option to eliminate ants from your space by addressing the underlying factors of the infestation. While treating ants, it is important to identify all the ant colonies in and around your property and exterminate them from the colonies to get the best results.
Also, certain treatments can work against specific ant species and cause minimal impact on the environment. Tom’s Pest Control creates a custom ant control plan after a detailed pest inspection at properties. Therefore, our procedures are highly effective, targeted, and make your space ant-free with long-term results.
At Tom’s Pest Control, we have a competitive, transparent pricing strategy for our services. When it comes to the pricing of ant control, the infestation in properties may be widespread or specific to particular areas of the property. Also, some properties may have ant infestation both indoor and outdoor.
Our treatment generally involves spraying non-repellent chemicals, dusting, gelling, and applying granules and baiting. Based on our inspection, we may complete soil treatment to prevent future infestation. You can expect the cost of ant control service between $150-$400.
You can get rid of ants from your space using a number of natural methods. Vinegar can kill ants instantly, and you can make a spray of half vinegar and half water and apply it on the ant routes and colonies. Similarly, you can apply lemon juice by mixing it with water to deter ants from your environment.
You can prepare a powerful ant killer with the following:
- 1½ tablespoons of borax
- ½ cup of sugar
- 1½ cups of warm water
Mix sugar and borax with water until fully dissolved. Then, take some cotton balls or paper towel, soak them in the mixture, and place in areas where ants appear. You will see results overnight and should see the ants completely disappear from your space in a few days.
If you don’t see complex ant infestation issues at your property, you can always try a number of natural methods to get rid of the pest. However, if those don’t give results, or you notice that the ant infestation returns after a few days, you contact us for professional ant extermination. Similarly, if your property is infested by the venomous ants found in Australia, you may need to handle the situation carefully.
Since we have the technical expertise and advanced tools, our licensed pest control technicians can safely eliminate the last ant from your space. Also, if you notice complex ant issues, contact us immediately to identify the reasons for the infestation and get complete ant extermination and management.
In most cases, you can spot ants in your environment, especially around food products. Even if you notice a few ants, don’t ignore them. Inspect the surrounding areas, you might see several hundreds of ants or some ant colonies lurking beneath.
If carpenter ants infest your property, you might hear rustling sounds from the wooden walls – especially at night. Also, if you notice wood shavings at your property without any visible reasons, you can request us an ant inspection. You can also check the damp areas of your property, including your kitchen and bathroom, to confirm any carpenter ant infestation.
We give customised, targeted treatments for ant infestation at properties. Moreover, we eliminate all ant-related issues at the properties of our customers to get the best results. Our treatment procedures should start giving you immediate results, and you can get a completely ant-free property environment in a few days. This is mainly because many ant colonies are giant, and treating them for the total elimination of the pest is tricky. The complete extermination of an ant colony only happens when the queen dies, and it may take a few days to reach the treatment up to the queen and kill the entire colony.
If your property has extensive ant issues or your DIY ant control methods don’t work, you should quickly get professional ant extermination. Failing to address the pest issues on time can spread the infestation further, with more ant colonies in and around your property. Also, your exterminator will complete a comprehensive pest inspection at your property to identify the extent of the infestation, sites of colonies, and the reasons for the infestation. Based on the inspection, they will complete targeted treatment at your property and help you minimise the risks of future infestation by addressing reasons for the infestation.
