Ant Problems

Do you have an ant infestation on your hands? Do you want to know how to get rid of ants in your house?

For years our staff has been treating ant and other pest problems in homes throughout the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland, using only the finest quality and safest products available. We understand that your home is a secure environment that you don’t want to share with pesky ants. Ants are hardy little creatures who flourish in our humid, steamy atmosphere. We must exercise extreme caution in controlling their presence since, despite their little size, they can pose a threat to ourselves and our homes.

It’s only a question of time if you observe an increase in the number of ants outside your house before they come inside. Ant pressure builds from the outside in, and a change in weather (such as a few days of rain) might drive ants indoors. Let’s take care of your ant problem before they infiltrate your home!

If you’ve seen white ants in and around your home, you may be dealing with termitesContact our team right away before termites can cause any more damage.

How To Get Rid Of Ants

We offer three different treatment options to get rid of ants in your home:

  1. Make an appointment for a basic ant treatment that will only treat ants.
  2. Book a Deluxe Pest Control package to get rid of ants, cockroaches, spiders, and silverfish from your house.
  3. Book a Supreme Pest Control package, which covers everything in the Deluxe Pest Control Package plus a comprehensive termite inspection. If you’ve also noticed white ants, this package is for you.

Even if you already have ants in your house, our ant control treatments are still effective – and far more so than over-the-counter ant control products. These products have a “knock-down” effect, which means they only kill the ants you can see right now and leave the remainder of the colony alone.

How Much Does Our Ant Control Treatments Cost?

The cost of your treatment will be determined by which of the options listed above you pick to control your ant infestation, as well as the size of your home. Because we appreciate that not everyone is aware of their property’s exact measurements, our team will instead inquire as to how many bedrooms, offices, and media rooms your property has, as well as whether it is highset or lowset. We use this information to estimate how long it will take us to complete the treatment and which service choice is ideal for you. After that, we’ll be able to estimate a price for the service.

Our Ant Control Process

A treatment technique that has a transference effect is the greatest technique to manage ants. We use products that take advantage of how ants live. Ants groom and assist one another, and they frequently consume their own dead, so the solutions we use to address your ant problem encourage the ants to help us out. Since ants live in such close quarters, our treatment method is particularly effective because it affects both those ants who were present at the time of treatment and those who were not.

3 Key Steps To Get Rid Of Ants

  1. To begin, we establish a perimeter treatment both inside and outside your property using excellent non-repellent solutions.
  2. Second, our technician looks for active ant trails and harborage areas outside. Once these ant paths and harborage spots have been identified, the technician will apply a quality non-repellent substance straight to them. These ants will go about their daily routine for up to 6 days while infecting other ants in their colony.
  3. The third step is to look for indicators of ant activity within your home. If this is the case, a premium bait will be utilized to attract the ants and quickly eliminate them.

What You Need To Know About Our Ant Treatments

  • To maintain your home ant-free, we always recommend a comprehensive indoor and external ant treatment.
  • If the ants were inside your home, it’s preferable to repeat the treatment every 12 months to avoid recurrence.
  • If you’re dealing with a lot of ants, we may prescribe exterior treatments every six months to keep them under control.
  • To make our treatments more successful over time, we employ a variety of materials (and use different products inside than we do outside).
  • Our equipment ensures that we may complete the work safely (for our team, for you, your family, and your pets).
  • We’ll make suggestions on things you may do around your house to reduce the possibilities of ants becoming an issue in the future.
  • Because the therapy works its way through the colony, you may see ants for another 4-6 weeks following treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our pest control services are safe for you, your family and your pets. All of our technicians are trained and licensed pest control technicians, who only use the best and safest products that have been approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.

During our services, we use only the safest techniques and practices to ensure the safety of your loved ones. To do this, the following precautions are to be observed:

  • If you or a family member is particularly sensitive or suffers from allergic reactions, we recommend that person remains out of the home until the product has dried.
  • Protect or remove any pets from the treatment area until the product has dried.
  • Avoid contact with the treated surfaces until the product has dried.
  • Cover all food items and utensils prior to treatment.

You get what you pay for. Most budget providers work on volume, and so they have to complete their jobs quickly, and usually with a ‘one-product-fits-all’ approach. The end result may not be tailored to your home and situation, leaving you with less effective treatment that won’t last all year.

Here at Benchmark Pest Solutions, we pride ourselves on high quality thorough work, and providing an outstanding customer experience. We know how important it is to feel safe, comfortable and relaxed in your own home. To ensure this, we spend more time on your property treating more areas, and use a greater number of products to create a more effective and longer lasting treatment.

We’ve designed our own tailorable methods of treatment that give our customers the most effective service possible. In each treatment we use a number of different specialised products that work together to create a compounding effect that provides a high quality and longer lasting treatment. Because we are more detailed, thorough, and use a combination of premium products, we can confidently offer our 12 month pest free guarantee.

Short answer: The products we use are safe for you and your little one.

Long answer: How do we know they are safe? Before a product can be sold as a pesticide in Australia, it first must be approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority. If, for example, a product was harmful to pregnant women and still was approved for use as a pesticide and a pest control company chose to use it (we would not); a warning would have to be printed on the label and on the product’s Safety Data Sheet.

Therefore, we know that our products are safe for pregnant women because there are no warnings on the labels or the safety data sheets of any of our products. We are also in constant contact with our chemical supplier, who would advise us immediately if anything were to change.

If you still are not convinced, we won’t be offended if you prefer to leave the premises while we conduct the service at your home. What matters most to us is that you feel comfortable during an exciting time of your life.

Unless you are particularly sensitive or suffer from allergic reactions, there is no need for you to leave your home during our pest treatment. However, if you would like to leave, that is absolutely fine too.

Ideally, you would be home to meet our pest technician and advise of any problem areas or concerns. After that, it’s really a personal choice if you want to stay or leave.

Yes, we do! Any person with a Queensland Seniors Card will receive a 20% discount on all services that exceed our minimum call out fee, with the exception of Termite Prevention; both physical and chemical barriers. We will also recognise Seniors Cards from other Australian States.
