Are ants infesting your business? Get the ants marching the other way by giving our pest experts a call!
Why Is Commercial Ant Control Important?
Ants thrive in our climate. We all see them quite often, but that doesn’t mean your customers want to see them while they’re eating at your restaurant or shopping in your store. Parents don’t want to see a line of ants marching towards some crumbs on the floor at a daycare. Teachers don’t want students to be distracted by a pair of ants battling over lunch box leftovers. Shoppers don’t want to reach for a head of lettuce at your grocery store and uncover a bunch of skittish ants! And your tenants certainly don’t want to share their bedrooms or kitchens with ants! Ants do not belong in your business or body corporate building.
Over the counter ant products just can’t do the heavy lifting that professional ant control treatments do. Professional ant control treatments help get rid of ants in your business and maintain that pesky ant population with yearly treatments. Get in touch with us and we’ll help you choose the right pest control package for your type of business.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have to close my business for an ant control treatment?
For real estate businesses and body corporates, you won’t have to shut down and you’re welcome to be on the premises during a treatment. However, for other businesses this will depend on whether or not it’s an internal treatment, external treatment, or both. It will also depend on if customers are going to be around the treatment area, in this case we generally advise for the treatment to be completed outside of service hours.
When we perform our on site visit as part of our initial proposal, we will determine what the best course of action will be for your business depending on the type of treatment you need.
How long will it take to complete an ant control treatment for my business?
How long an ant treatment will take is entirely dependent on your business and the premise. We’ll let you know how long it will take when we perform our on-site visit as part of our initial proposal.
Are the products you use to get rid of ants safe for my customers?
Absolutely! All of our pest control products are safe for you and your customers.
Do I need more than one treatment to keep the ants away?
Yes, you will need more than one treatment to keep the ants away. Unfortunately, the products will break down over time and the ant population will replenish itself and move in from the area that surrounds your property.
The most effective way to keep ants away is to maintain a consistent pest control treatment regime. This will largely depend on the environmental pressures surrounding your premise and the tolerance you and potential customers have to ants. We recommend 6 monthly external treatments to sufficiently keep ants at bay if you have a low tolerance to seeing ants.
