    Carpenter ants in Brisbane

    One of the species that can cause you the most trouble in Brisbane and much of Australia is the Carpenter ant. These pests choose to nest in wood, which understandably can be a big problem. If they elect to build their home in your walls, this can seriously weaken both the wood itself, and the structural integrity of the property.

    They are also known to have a painful bite. Carpenter ants in Brisbane commonly select places like your roof or around your windows to nest. They are also active at night so it can be tougher to spot them. Watch out for wood shavings or something similar as a sign that they might be burrowing in, and consult our expert team for guidance if you think you may have an infestation.

      Frequently Asked Questions: Ant Control in Brisbane

      Below we’ll address some of the most frequently asked questions regarding ant pest control in Brisbane. If you get stuck and can’t find the info you need, please feel free to contact us at your convenience; we’re always happy to help.

      The most common ant species include: 

      • Black house ants: These small, dark ants are attracted to sugary foods and crumbs. They often leave trails as they travel between their nest and food sources.
      • Odorous house ants: As the name suggests, these ants have a distinctive coconut-like odour when crushed. They are also attracted to sweets and can be found near kitchens and bathrooms.
      • Carpenter ants: These larger ants are reddish-black and can inflict significant damage to wooden structures by creating tunnels for nesting.
      • Fire ants: These aggressive ants have a reddish-brown body and a painful sting. They are not as common as other species but can be present in some areas of Brisbane.

      Some tell-tale signs include: 

      • Visible ants: Seeing ants wandering around your home, especially in kitchens or bathrooms, is a clear sign of an infestation.
      • Ant trails: These lines of ants moving back and forth often indicate their path between the nest and a food source.
      • Ant nests: You might discover ant nests outdoors in soil, under mulch, or even inside your home in secluded areas like walls or crawlspaces.
      • Fragile wings: Finding discarded wings near windows or doors suggests swarming activity, thus indicating a mature colony.

      If you have an infestation of ants in your home it may be for one or more of the following reasons: 

      • Food sources: Crumbs, spills, and easily accessible food attract ants.
      • Water sources: Leaky faucets, condensation build-up, or readily available water sources are attractive to them.
      • Entry points: Small cracks or gaps around windows, doors, pipes, or foundations can serve as entry points for ants.
      • Sweet smells: Strong smells from pet food, fruits, or sugary drinks can attract them.

      In the event of an ant infestation, the first thing you should do is try to remain calm. We know that an insect infestation can be very unsettling and cause anxiety, but try not to make any rash decisions. Simply pick up the phone, and contact SWAT Pest Control Brisbane, and one of our pest control experts will be with you as soon as possible. 

      While DIY methods like ant baits and sprays are available, these often offer temporary relief and may not address the underlying problem of the entire colony. Additionally, some DIY products might not be safe for use around pets and children. 

      We use safe and effective products that are EPA-registered and pose minimal risk to pets and children.

      This depends on the severity of the problem and the appropriate treatment methods prescribed by your ant pest control expert. In most cases, we can have this resolved for you in a week or so.
