We don't treat residential infestations, however a good first-aid solution is to pour boiling water over the nest entrance. Several shops also sell ant-specific powders and sprays which can be used outdoors. Baits containing Borax are also available.
It is also important to remove potential food sources by ensuring that food waste is properly disposed of.
For details on how we treat commercial ant infestations please contact the Pest Control Team.
