Ant Control Brisbane
Professional Ant Treatment and Control Solutions
We offer licensed ant control professionals throughout South East Queensland.
Ants are eusocial insects that belong to the Hymenoptera order and typically have elbowed antennas and large heads. They have powerful jaws that equate to a ferocious and painful bite. A colony can quickly invade and infest your property as these insects are known to build, what one would consider, multilevel dwellings with a typical colony amounting to at least 3,000 individuals.
Queensland Ant Species
Believe it or not, there are over 1,400 species of ants in Queensland alone. Common species include Argentine Black House, Bull(dog), Coastal Brown, and Odorous are only to name a few of the many common types found in Queensland.
They are light to dark brown in color. They are aggressive and prefer to eat fruits but are also found to eat other insects as well.
Black House ants
This species is shiny and black in color. They are typically found in and around the kitchen, dog muck, and are known to also forage the garbage.
Bull Bulldog ants are one of the largest species in Queensland. They are red and black in color. They are also an aggressive species and can be typically found outdoors under logs or soil.
Coastal Brown ants
These range in color from brown to yellowish-brown. Their nests can be found in dry areas and are not typically picky eaters. This means they eat meat, greasy foods, fruits, and other sweet food.
They get their name because if you crush or step on quite a few of them, they will emit a potent odor that is hard to get rid of. These can also be found in the kitchen and prefer eating sweet or sugary food.
