Pro Shield Pest Management offer a range of ant control treatments to get rid of the most persistent ant problems. To achieve lasting control of ants you need to be able to identify the species, understand its behaviour and know the best products to use.
Funnel Ants – Otherwise known as lawn ants, their signature habit is creating funnels on lawns creating an uneven surface, undermining the soil, and killing the grass.
Bull Dog and Jack Jumper Ants – These species are known for their aggressive nature. Their powerful stings can cause serious allergic reactions in some people.
Green Ants – A green ant bite can be a painful experience and can sometimes cause an anaphylactic reaction. They are often found in lawn areas, between pavers, tree stumps and gardens.
Black House Ants – These ants do not bite or sting and are active both day and night. Often found around the kitchen or just trailing around anywhere there is a food source.
Carpenter Ants – As the name suggests, these ants can cause significant damage to homes and other wooden structures by hollowing out spaces for their nests, which weakens the wood over time.
Coastal Brown Ants – These ants are very small and brown and are difficult to see. They are small bodied but run in large groups.
Fire Ants – A huge Biosecurity issue in Queensland and the subject of The National Fire Ant Eradication Program. This program aims to find, contain and destroy fire ants in Southeast Queensland. Fire ants are aggressive, highly adaptive, and well-equipped for survival.
