Ants live across Australia and generally stay outside, but when they do come inside, we tend to want them removed, especially when they start becoming a visible nuisance.
Thanks to our warm coastal climate and abundance of nature, it is well known locally that ants can be a problem for homes and businesses on the Sunshine Coast. Whether you find your property afflicted by fire ants, carpenter ants, blue ants or another ant species, our ant exterminators can treat and eradicate all species easily and quickly.
No Nook or Cranny is Safe from Ant Infestations
Ants are a very social insect and can travel up to 200 meters away from their nest to find food. In their search, they travel along patios, trees, fences and even underground tunnels with great ease.
Ant nests can be found anywhere, including inside trees, under pavers, in wall voids and roof cavities; pretty much anywhere they can fit into. On the odd occasion, our ant exterminators have even found ants hiding inside computers and printers! No space is too small or too awkward for ants to invade.
Even old termite nests can house ants once the termites (also known as white ants) have been exterminated. While regular ants do kill termites when their presence is known, they can live side-by-side peacefully when neither knows the other is there.
Choose our Exterminators for Ant Control on the Sunshine Coast
When you choose our ant exterminators to remove ants from your property, they don’t just come out and do a general pest spray, they provide a comprehensive ant pest control service which gets to the root of the infestation.
If our ant pest controllers are unable to locate the source of the problem they will provide the ants with a poisened food source to carry back to their nest. This will eliminate the colony once it takes affect.
After the contaminated food source has been distributed, our pest controllers spray the entire perimeter of your home or business to provide long-lasting ant pest control protection.

Ant Removal Options Explained
Solid Food Source/Gel Ant Treatment
This solution involves poisoning the ants food supply which the ants then take back to their nest to kill the colony. This method is very effective, but if you’re dealing with large ant nests or multiple nests, it can become very expensive.
Granules/Sand Ant Treatment
This strategy involves distributing the product which contains the ant control chemical down into the cracks between path pavers and over the pavers. This keeps the ants away and will eventually kill them after they come into contact with it. This method takes a little time to work, it does not eliminate ants instantly.
Ant Repellent Chemical Spray
This method creates a fully repellent, ant pest control chemical barrier around the house perimeter, both externally and internally. This chemical barrier relies on the ants not wanting to cross it in order to be effective. To ensure effectiveness when using this ant control solution, it is crucial to ensure the barrier is adequate, and the correct amount of chemical is used.
Non-Repellent Chemical Ant Removal Spray
This ant control solution is similar to what was used during the ant removal call-out request our pest control company received a few years back from a homeowner whose home was completely infested by ants.
Unlike the repellent method explained above, the non-repellent method allows ants to cross over the chemical barrier freely. They then take the poison back to the nest, and once it has taken effect, it should wipe out the entire colony.
This approach can be also be extremely effective for removing ants from lawns.
