What Are Ants?

Ants are social insects that live in organized colonies typically hosting hundreds to thousands of individual workers. There are over 12,000 known ant species globally with diverse characteristics and behaviors.

They live in parent nests housing queen ants along with developing larvae. Worker ants venture out from central dens in search of resources to sustain the greater colony.

Ants communicate and navigate using chemical pheromone trails secreted when walking. They also build secondary satellite hills allowing expansion into new areas like the insides of homes and buildings.

These invaders experience rapid population growth under ideal conditions with warmth, moisture and abundant food sources. A single queen can lay thousands of eggs in her lifespan, rapidly forming sizable colonies.

Common Pest Ant Species In Brisbane

Brisbane’s warm, humid climate means ants are a constant nuisance. Homeowners typically deal with five main species:

Red Imported Fire Ant

These aggressive ants have a painful, bee-like sting that causes blisters and irritation.

Green Tree Ant

Build visible mounds in trees and bushes that can drip nuisance honeydew.

Black House Ant

Invade structures through tiny cracks seeking meal and moisture.

Argentine Ant

Cause pest issues by forming massive colonies of thousands of ants.

White-Footed House Ant

Trail indoors in long lines foraging for sweets and proteins.

While not all ants pose major threats, uncontrolled infestations inevitably impact daily life. Let’s explore why professional ant pest control matters.

Signs of an Infestation

Why Ant Control Is So Important

Ants might seem harmless at first. But without proper ant treatment, they can:


Red imported fire ants deliver painful stings causing blisters or allergic reactions. Other species bite exposed skin.

Swarm Crumbs

Ants swarm kitchens and pantries contaminating uncovered sweets and surfaces.

Spread bacteria

Foraging ants transfer bacteria onto kitchen counters, appliances, etc.

Damage property

Tunneling carpenter or invasive Argentine ants can damage wood infrastructure over time.

Short circuits

Nest debris can damage electronics or chew through wiring insulation causing short circuits.

Beyond health and property risks, they can disrupt daily living:

  • Constant need to clean and disinfect invaded areas
  • Difficulty enjoying outdoor spaces like patios and play equipment
  • Having guests unwilling to visit an ant-infested property environment
  • Difficulty sleeping with indoor ant invasions
  • General frustration and stress!

Prevent them from taking over your life with our proven Brisbane ant control services.

Signs Of An Ant Infestation

Detecting ants early allows tackling them before major colonies form. Be on the lookout for these common warning signs:

  • Visible ants trailing indoors along walls, baseboards, countertops, etc.
  • Heaps accumulating outdoors in gardens, beneath debris, inside woodpiles etc.
  • Winged swarmers emerging inside, signaling large mature ant colonies nearby
  • Sawdust-like material piling up from carpenter ant damage
  • Annoying vinegar smells from secretions used to ward off competitors
  • Plants withering from farming green ants milking sap
  • Bubbling paint or cracks in structures from hives excavation

Act quickly at the first signs of activity before ants take over living spaces or damage property. We offer free inspections to assess the severity of invasions threatening your home or commercial property. Call us today!

Frequently Asked Questions

What attracts ants into my home?

Ants enter structures in search of grease, water source and shelter. They enter in small cracks in foundations, gaps below doors/windows, pipe openings, torn screens, etc. Proper sealing is key for prevention.

What does a professional ant treatment cost on average?

Cost depends on the size of your property and the extent of infestation. Most homeowners invest $200 to $800 for our complete 4-stage service eliminating ants long-term. We provide free quotes to establish exact costs upfront.

What do I do if ants keep coming back after treatment?

It’s extremely rare when following our prevention plan. But if they happen to return within 30 days after initial service, call us. We’ll come back out to re-treat the property completely free of charge thanks to our quality results guarantee.

How long does it take from starting pest treatment to fully get rid of all ants?

Results begin within 24 hours of initial interior treatments. However, completely eliminating them living deep inside structures or soil can take 2 to 4 weeks depending on species. Outdoor colonies can take a few months to control since they replenish over time. Sticking with our prevention plan keeps these new generations under control.

Can do-it-yourself ant killers effectively get rid of infestations?

The most effective over-the-counter killers contain synthetic pesticides that carry risks using incorrectly. Professional-grade chemicals plus proper application methods make hiring a pest control company the safest, most effective route for permanent relief.
