Regardless of where you are in the world you are likely to come into contact with ants

In Australia we have approximately 1300 species. From the bulldog ant which is one of the most dangerous ants in the world to the common black and coastal brown ants which commonly infests our homes in Australia. The common black and coastal brown ants are the ones we treat the most. As every species of ants has different characteristics we have to adjust the type of treatment that we use to get rid of an infestation in Burleigh Heads. You must be aware ant species have different food preferences. Some are sugar feeders and some are protein feeders and some types like both but only feed on what is needed at the time. So it is not unusual to use multiple treatments at the same time. We will use dusting, baits and gels and chemical applied to the trails for maximum effect. It is very rare to find that you are able to solve an ant infestation immediately. This is why we will use as many different approaches over several sessions to get the desired results. All our ant treatments have a 12 month internal warranty and a 3 month external warranty period.
