Ants can be more difficult to treat than you realise. Simply treating ants on-site will not only be a short-term solution but can actually make things more difficult
in the long term if you treat them with the wrong products.
Products available from your local supermarket or hardware store can cause ‘budding’ where the ants set up shop in a new location because they feel threatened by these products.
Ants often move to new areas due to poor treatment processes, if weather washes them out or because they are running out of room in their original nest.
Either way, you need a multi-pronged approach to reduce and eliminate ant colonies before things get worse. Simply put, trying to treat ants with limited knowledge and experience will simply result in a bigger problem elsewhere.
Interesting facts – when a queen of a colony dies, they usually own last a few months. The largest ant colony was found in Argentina spanning out a massive 6 thousand kilometres! – ants are the longest living insects known to man, specifically the queen of the Pogonomyrmex Owyheei can live up to 30 years!
