What ant species can be found in Canberra & Queanbeyan?
There are over 1,300 species of ants that can be found in Australia. Unlike other kinds of pest, there is no huge predominance of one ant species over the other. However, there are definitely some species that are more dangerous than others and that need to be removed. These dangerous ant species include:
- Bull Ant
- Fire Ant
- Ghost Ant
- Odorous House Ant
- Pharaoh’s Ant
- Carpenter Ant
What is the most dangerous ant species?
There are a few contenders, but the most dangerous kind of ant is possibly the Bull Ant, which is sometimes referred to as the ‘Bullet Ant’ or ‘Bulldog Ant’. This is a large species of aggressive ants that have a very painful sting. They are black in colour and reach up to 40mm in size. Not only are they the most aggressive, but they are also known to be the smartest type of ant in the world. They are able to jump while attacking. Of course, there are other dangerous species of ant, such as the notorious fire ant. If you suspect you have a bull or fire ant infestation, call City Pest Control now on 0407 909 118.
What are the dangers of an ant infestation?
It depends entirely on the type of ant. If you have a fire ant infestation, the result could be death, as they swarm victims and their bite is venomous. This is rare, but children and sicky livestock are potentially at risk. For most species of ant in your home, the danger is from contaminated food. You are more likely to spot Black House ants or Argentine ants in comparison to bull or fire ants. But this does not mean you want them in your home. They will attract other pests, such as black widow spiders, which feed on them. Pests are pests, and need to be gotten rid of.
How does City Pest Control treat ant infestations most frequently?
The most common method is to set bait which the ants eat and then takes back to the colony. In this way, the queen can be killed and the colony will die off shortly after. However, we need to investigate the specific type of any to determine the best solution. Some ant colonies are gigantic and need a different approach.
Are ants difficult to exterminate?
This depends on the species of ant and the severity of the infestation. However, all things considered, it’s a little easier to treat ants in comparison to termites or rats, as these species are harder to locate and harder to kill off once found. We recommend that you take preventative measures to ensure they don’t enter your home in the first place. Ants are most commonly attracted to food so make sure everything is sealed airtight at night.
