Internal ant treatments

To find the ants nest inside can be a little tricky. In fact, if you can’t find it you will have to use chemicals or baits that have the transfer effect. This enables us to know how to kill ants nest but can take a little time as we don’t want to kill them straight away. This gives the treatment time to spread and kill the colony. Treatments can take up to 2 weeks before they are gone.

Finding the nest

To know how to kill ants nest, finding their nest will be the optimum in getting rid of them. In fact, direct ant nest treatment will destroy the nest but often the ant nest is hard to locate. The next best option to know how to kill their nest is to treat where the ants are tracking. However, the right chemical or bait must be chosen. Therefore identification of what ants that need treating is important. In fact, some of them eat protein and others eat sugar-based products. Also, some types of ants alternate their feeding between both. Generally, there are only 2 types we find internally which are the Blackhouse And the Coastal brown ants. Due to their size, they easily enter our homes and make it their home.

Where ants Nest

In fact, the ants will nest anywhere and we have found them nesting in alarm clocks and even televisions. Generally, the ants usually nest in our wall cavities, roof voids, and under our kitchen and bathroom cupboards. In fact, at CERTIFIED HOME SERVICES our internal ant’s treatment comes with a 12-month service warranty. Furthermore, if the ants are not gone after 2 weeks we will come back and retreat at no cost until they are gone.

Also, the treatment is safe for your family and pets.



Getting rid of ants on the outside of your home.

In fact, many homeowners struggle to get rid of ants with DIY ant control. Small problems usually become big problems. The reason why the DIY  ant treatment doesn’t work too well as most are only direct applications and only kills on contact. There are some products that have a residual, but this still requires the ants to walk over it and it only kills on contact. So you actually need a treatment that will spread to get the ants under control.

Not like the internal ant treatment our outside treatment only has a 3-month warranty due to outside pressures. Like the inside, the most common is Coastal Brown ants and Blackhouse ants. Also, there are the good old green-headed ants which is quite a regular and these guys HURT and can be a problem for your children and pets. You definitely want to get rid of these ants. In fact, we encourage a regular external ant treatment, generally every 3 months at first. However the ant treatments can be extended out after the first 2 treatments.
