WHY ARE ANTS DIFFICULT TO TREAT?

Ant control in Auckland can be difficult as the Queen ant is always remote and not accessible. The Queen is only important organism  in the nest, if she remains alive the nest continues in some form. If she perishes then the colony no longer exists.

The general advice is use bait to get to the queen, but commonly customers say their baiting efforts didn't work.  Over the counter baiting products can be problematic for a number of reasons. The main reason is that some species do not rely solely on foraging food to feed the nest (and Queen). With these species bait will reduce down the number of foraging ants but never get to the Queen. Another reason is that some ants  species prefer fat and protein  no the over the counter sugar based baits.

  • Coastal Brown ant. A brown small ant. Two sizes, a few with big heads. Makes sand mounds come up around pavers.

HOW DO YOU TREAT ANTS?

ACES pest control uses products that target the Queen to get  a better result for our customers. There's no magical spray that does it all. Its a combination of knowledge of the different species of ants and matching the products to the species of ant. Additionally using products that transfer to the colony and kill the Queen (s).

The net result is a treatment that is slower to work but more effective in the long run.

We attend the NPMA conference's and recently completed the course on the management of Ant Super Colonies by Dr Robert Puckett.  Our technique for ant control is considered best practice by Dr Puckett and NPMA.
