The Risk that Ants Pose
Ants aren’t disease carriers. Unless you’re allergic to insect bites, an ant bite is more of an annoyance than an injury. Still, ants bring with them a set of problems. It’s hard to keep ants out of areas where food is stored, and who knows what microbes they bring along with them?
If you leave food out without sealing it, the ants will quickly take over, crowding over the food source, so you’ll have to throw it away.
Ants are also destructive. They will eat away at appliance wiring and make nests in woodwork.
Fire ants and yellow crazy ant infestations pose serious Brisbane environmental risks. They destroy the surrounding vegetation and may have a detrimental effect on outdoor living areas. The Queensland authorities have set up an eradication program to stop the spread of red ants.
Ants burrow into every area of your home. They can cause widespread damage to building structures. Indeed, white ants and termites cause millions of rands worth of damage buildings each year. Brisbane ant treatment and pest control are your only weapons in the fight for control.
Common Ant Species
There are more than 12,000 identified ant species across the globe. They exist in huge numbers and can become a major annoyance in the home.
They are social insects, living in cooperative colonies. Depending on the species, their colonies vary in size from dozens to millions of members.
Each colony contains a queen whose primary function is to lay eggs and produce more ants. Colonies also contain worker ants who care for and feed the queen and developing brood. Ants leave invisible odour ant trails, which worker ants follow between their nests and the food.
Fire ants are very noticeable. They have a black thorax, and the rest of the body is bright red. A fire ant’s bite can burn like hell and can lead to redness and irritation. This type of ant species is controlled by Biosecurity Queensland.
Carpenter ants are found across the globe. These reddish-black ants usually build their nests in wood. If there is no suitable wood outside, they invade houses, making their nests in furniture.
Signs of an Ant Infestation
You’ll recognise the presence of ants if you know what to look for. Here are some signs that you have an ant problem
- Wood shavings – Termites and carpenter ants eat wood. You may see shavings around the area where they’re busy. If you do it’s time to contact a professional ant control treatment team immediately.
- Nests – Ants live in nests. While most ants create nests outside, some will build them in your home, particularly in furniture. Some ants create a distinctive hill above the nest, clear evidence that you have ants on your property.
- Sightings – One of the most significant signs of an ant infestation is seeing a trail of ants outside or inside your home.
If you come across any of the above evidence, it’s time to take action. You can use various pest treatment alternatives as you work to control these pests.
