When it comes to controlling ants, identification is where any ant control service and ant treatment succeeds or fails. With so many different species in Australia, identification is the key. For an ant treatment to be successful, only the application of the correct, species specific baiting agent will eliminate the nest. This is where so many DIY home owners and pest technicians go wrong, and why most pest control companies can’t offer you a warranty.
Mantis Ant Control
All ant services begin with a thorough inspection in and around the building structure, including garden areas. One of the goals to achieve a successful ant treatment is to locate as many ant colonies as possible. Unlike many of our competitors this is not the only way to achieve a successful ant treatment, because at Mantis Pest Control we also combine the direct treatment of the ant colonies as well as the technique of applying the correct baiting agents around the property depending on the species, which have a transfer affect for the those ant colonies that cannot be found or are not accessible.
Ants form colonies that range in size from a few dozen predatory individuals living in small natural cavities to highly organised colonies which may occupy large territories and consist of millions of individuals. These larger colonies consist mostly of sterile wingless females forming castes of workers, soldiers, or other specialised groups. Nearly all ant colonies also have some fertile males called drones and one or more fertile females called queens. The colonies are sometimes described as super organisms because the ants appear to operate as a unified entity, collectively working together to support the colony.
Ants have colonized almost every landmass on Earth. The only places lacking indigenous ants are Antarctica and a few remote or inhospitable islands. Ant societies have divisions of labour, communication between individuals, and an ability to solve problems. These parallels with human society and have long been an inspiration and subject of study.
