From Preparation to Treatment

Our professionals will perform a thorough inspection of the premises, determine the species of ants present, and then make treatment recommendations. We advise removing all pets and children under the age of 12 from the home before we begin treatment.

Next step

After pests have been treated, keep them at bay by constantly switching out pet food and disposing of leftovers.

Next step

An additional piece of advice is to fill in any openings that ants might use to get inside. It is also recommended to prune any trees or plants on the exterior of the house that are too close to the structure.

Common Ant Questions

  1. Why choose professional ant control over DIY?

    Constant training ensures that our highly trained technicians always have the most up-to-date information. As a result, they are up-to-date on the best, most eco-friendly methods available. Furthermore, we have access to specialised tools and materials that are reserved for licenced exterminators.

  2. What damage can ants cause?

    Ants are not only an eyesore, but also a danger to humans and property. Termites can cause food spoilage and damage to structures, wiring, and attics. Although they do not spread illness, they may spread dirt and other unsanitary materials. They also have the ability to bite! Since they tend to nest in huge groups, an infestation can rapidly worsen.

  3. When and where are ants most active?

    As cold blooded creatures, ants really appreciate any source of heat. In general, ant populations flourish in hotter, more humid regions, or during the colder months, ants will seek shelter indoors. But they’re really just looking around for food and supplies! Infestation hotspots in the home include the kitchen and bathrooms.

  4. What are the signs of an infestation?

    Until you actually see them, you might not know there is an infestation. Tiny ants hide in cracks and crevices until they’re hungry or thirsty, at which point they emerge to forage. Multiple points of entry need to be sealed in your home. With our treatment, they will be gone for good.

  5. What are ants attracted to?

    Ants seek to areas that are warm and damp. That’s why they spend so much time there. Ants are attracted to the scent of honeydew and sugar, so it’s important to clean up any spills of water or juice very once. Keep perishables in the fridge and use airtight containers or seal bags.

Common Ants

Black House Ant


The body of the black house ant is shiny, and it has only six tiny legs. In general, you should expect a size of about 2.5mm.


The reproductive process of ants is a complex phenomenon that centres on the Colony Queen. The final gender of fertilised eggs is female, while the gender of unfertilised eggs is male. Larvae take about six weeks to develop into fully functional ants, which may soon be invading your kitchen in search of a food.


Throughout New Zealand, black house ants have been seen inside of various buildings. They are attracted to wetness, sugary foods, and even pet faeces, so it’s no surprise that they frequently invade homes through the kitchen or garage.

Coastal Brown Ant


On average, a Coastal Brown Ant measures 2.5mm in length and has a brown coloration with a subtle yellow cast.


The complicated process of ant reproduction focused around the colony queen. Unfertilized eggs become male, and fertilised eggs become female. The development of larva into functional ants, who may soon be raiding your kitchen for a bite, takes about six weeks from egg to adult.


The invasive Coastal Brown ant has been found in buildings and dwellings across New Zealand. They are attracted to wetness, sugary foods, and even pet faeces, so it’s no surprise that they frequently invade homes through the kitchen or garage.
