Ant Treatments – Why We’re Different!
It can be frustrating to find ants in your home which have proven to be difficult to control. Considering ants travel through unsanitary areas before they end up in your home, on your countertops, in your cupboards and near your food you should take steps to keep them away!
Ants externally do not get eradicated with the traditional cockroach/spider sprays and ants will usually stay away from areas that have been conventionally treated with spider or cockroach sprays and therefore close of their nest entry points only to come up somewhere else.
Many times whilst quoting for ants I am asked why are our ant treatments more expensive than other companies. The reason being is the pesticide that we use to eradicate not just the surface ants that can be seen but the entire nest. Keep reading to find out the benefits of our ant treatments.

Sydneys Best Pest Control Ant Treatment – Which WORKS!
For ants inside we place low toxic bait which they also take back to the nest, to kill the colony and Queen. If your ant problem is only inside the bait is sufficient.
If you perceive the ants outside to be an issue we recommend you do for ants outside also.
With ants we use a special product called Termidor; as ants are unaware Termidor is a poison they end up walking over it and taking back to the nest where they transfer it between each other therefore eradicating the whole nest.
- DO NOT SPRAY ANYTHING AND DO NOT DISTURB THE ANT TRAILS OR ANTS THEMSELVES

- Wipe under appliances to remove food scraps
- Wipe down any open jars of honey, syrups, sugars
