Green Ants Control
Although green ants are native to Australia and perform an important function in local ecosystems, they can still be exceptionally annoying, especially when nesting in gardens and yards of suburban environments.
Green ants tend to nest in trees and control the numbers of other insect pests that may be invading the area. And while green ants are seen to be generally beneficial to plants and trees (they are even used by some Australian fruit farms as bio-control agents), they can overwhelm plant life and stunt the growth or even kill younger trees.
Green ant nests range from the size of an adult fist to the size of a soccer ball, and they can build a large nest in less than 24 hours.
When it comes to green ant control, a lot of people don’t like the idea of using pesticides for killing green ants. A method often suggested for dealing with green ants is to simply to break open their nests and brush them to the ground. Green ants don’t like to walk on the ground, and the thinking behind this method is that once their nest is destroyed and they’re removed from the plants, they will disperse and move on.
While that is generally a good strategy, it is time consuming and labour intensive, not to mention you’ll probably have an entire nest’s worth of ants scurrying all over you while you do the job!
What’s more, this method is not 100% effective for eradicating green ants from our property, and there is no reason why the ants won’t return and build another nest overnight.
Fast, Effective Green Ants Control
Sometimes stronger measures are needed to protect your property. Common ant pest control methods include using flammable substances like petrol and kerosene, or toxic substances like borax or chlorine to kill ants.
We strongly advise against these substances as they can damage your plants, soil and groundwater of your garden. These substances also threaten the health and safety of your children and pets.
