Get Rid Of Black Ants
Black ants are probably the most common household pests in Australia. And if you enjoy the outdoor lifestyle we Aussies are so proud of, you’ve no doubt had how to get rid of black ants when they become unwelcome guests at picnics, pool parties and barbecues.
As long as black ants stay outdoors they don’t usually cause too much of a problem, and they are relatively easy to deal with – unless they have built a nest on your property, because having a black ant infestation in your home is no joke.
Black ants that have entered your home are notoriously difficult to get rid of, and once they have identified a food source they can be one of the most annoying pests to deal with.
The problem with how to get rid of black ants
What’s more, black ant pest control is not as straightforward as it seems.
The major problem most people experience with small black ants in the house is that they only kill the ants they see, which means the source of the problem is never dealt with.
The only reliable way to get rid of ants on your property or in your house for good is to find the nest and destroy it, along with any stray ants that might be lurking around your home.
Making sure you kill off these stray ants is crucial because black ants reproduce quickly, and it only takes a few survivors to rebuild an entire nest and infest your property all over again. In fact, one of the questions we get asked most often is how to kill little black ants effectively.
Black Ant Control Done For You
The risk of rapid re-infestation is the main reason we at M&M don’t recommend trying to get rid of black ants on your own. Finding and eradicating ants’ nests is a tricky business, and if you get it wrong, you could end up making your black ant problem much worse.
If you do happen to find the nest the best way to deal with it is not to use common methods. While you may have heard of using boiling water, petrol, kerosene, or other more toxic products like bleach and chlorine to get rid of ants and destroy the nest, we would advise against using these substances to kill ants. Apart from the health risks of using these substances, you risk contaminating the soil or ground water on your property, as well as making the area unsafe for children and pets.
There are, however, safer methods of getting rid of black ants, such as using ant sand to create barriers at the entrances to your home, setting up traps and baits, and using borax powder spray on the nest itself. The problem with these methods is that they take up a lot of your time, they are messy and labour intensive, and they’re not 100% reliable.
And really, aren’t there better ways to spend your free time?
