Big Headed Ant (
or Coastal Brown
This very small ant is an import from South Africa and is related to the Fire ant, Singapore ant, Ginger ant and other species. It is easily recognised by its soldier ant which has a very large head. (Hence big headed ant) The problem sometimes is that the soldiers are scarce. (About every 50 to 100 ants).
How to recognise them??
They are very small, often ginger or dark in colour with the telltale soldier head being larger than the rest. They LOVE water and as a result you will find them in your sink, kettle, bath, under pot plants, around drippers and sprinklers in gardens and anywhere there is a water source. I have even been told by clients that they showed up in wet washing in the laundry basket, a glass of water next to the bed and even in one lady's hair after she washed it but went to bed whilst is was still wet!!! Another common one is they kick up the sand between pavers and along the edge of buildings where the concrete path meets the house/unit.
Don't panic!! We have a granule which is specifically designed to treat this ant with 100% eradication within 48 hours. (More often 24 hours) They take the granule back to their nest and that's that. We realise of course that if you have them then your neighbours will. As a result we give you some extra granule (At no extra cost to you) as part of our treatment which will last you in most cases about 6 - 12 months.
The next main culprit is the ‘Native’ Indoor Black Ant (Not to be confused with the tiny black Singapore Ant)
This little guy often appears out of the back of your pantry, light fitting, hole in a corner and is often seen tracking up the outside wall into the roof space. He gives the impression sometimes that he lives outside and is coming in when in most cases he is in the roof space and is coming out.
This guy is the hardest to get especially if you have a flat roof (no access hole) or if your roof space has insulation. Thankfully we have developed a way of treating them easily and safely that works. So much so that we give you a 12 month warranty inside on them.
Third in Line is the Meat Ant or Bull Ant
This is one that is in large numbers, black, about 1cm (1/2 inch) in length and his nest is usually situated on a bare patch of ground with lots of small holes in it. THIS GUY BITES (AND IT HURTS)
This guy is easy to fix whilst being in-expensive.
The Desert Ant, Pharaoh Ant, Hairy Ant And Common Black Ant Bring Up The Rear
The common black ant makes little holes every couple of feet and join these holes with thousands of little black ants. The Desert ant make mounds with a 'coin' slot on the top (Often on the nature strip) which are usually always joined together with other nests. Desert ants come in different colours but usually black and they are not known to bite. They will however as will the small black ants make very long trips to find food. (Or the dog bone) The Hairy ant likes pot plants and hanging baskets whilst the Pharaoh ant is not fussed. All in all we have some answers for all of them.
This is the same as the meat ant. We also give a 6 month warranty on these guys.
