Ants are one of the most common pests found in KZN. There are several known ant species and they occur throughout all seasons.

Ants live for about seven years and a queen can live up to 15 years. The size of a colony can vary and grow up to 500 000 working ants. What most people don’t know is that when the colony feels threatened they can quickly uproot and relocate. This is why self-treatment is ineffective as it’s mostly focused on ants that can be seen and not exterminating the source of the colony.

The objective of a professional pest control company is to locate and treat the nest. Ants nest in the soil, inside walls, roof cavities, and moisture-affected timber. It is difficult and time-consuming to locate these nests as they can be some distance away from affected areas or in inaccessible locations.

Ant Treatment

Flick Pest Control works with environmentally friendly products, one being placing target-specific ant bait, which combines an attractant and a poison, instead of commonly over-applied spray treatments. We have found this treatment far more effective as it has a delayed reaction in order to have the bait distributed throughout and consumed by the whole ant colony, therefore eradicating the total nest, including the queen. Ant granules are placed in areas of ant activity e.g. ant trails and around nests.
