Signs You Have Ants in Your Property
Ants are not just a nuisance; they can cause damage to your property. That’s why it’s important to recognise the signs of an ant infestation and take immediate action. Here are common signs you might be dealing with an ant problem:
Ants communicate with each other using chemical trails. If you observe lines of ants commuting to and from a food source, this could be a sign of an ant infestation.
Tiny mounds of soil or dirt surrounding holes in the ground often signal the presence of ant nests.
Damage to wood
Some ant species, particularly carpenter ants, can wreak havoc on wooden structures much like termites.
Regular ant sightings
Spotting a few ants occasionally is normal. But if you often see large numbers or trails of ants, you may have a bigger problem on your hands.
You should also watch for any structural weaknesses in your property, as ants often exploit these to gain entry. And check for food sources that might attract ants, such as open food containers or spills, and make sure you clean them up quickly. By keeping an eye out for these signs, you can catch an ant infestation early and get it under control.

How to prevent ants?
Our valued clients often ask how to get rid of ants or how to prevent ant issues in the first place. The best way to prevent an ant issue or stop it in its tracks is to remove food sources for ants. Here are our top tips for preventing ants in your home:
- Keep the kitchen clean and free of crumbs and food scraps
- Store foods in airtight containers
- Regularly clean and vacuum your home to remove crumbs
- Wash dishes and utensils at the end of every night
- Wipe down benchtops to remove any trace of food
- Reduce the availability of water, including spills
- Store food in cupboards, but avoid keeping it at floor level
- Regularly clean the tops of cupboards, shelves, and other hard to reach places
- Wash and put away pets food bowls when they’re finished eating
What methods do you use for ant control?
Our pest control technicians will use a combination of liquid sprays, insecticidal dust, and ant bait gel to kill the ants inside your home as well as the nearby ant colony. The ants in your home will take the bait gel back to the ant nest, thereby killing off the entire colony. The Ant Pest Control Treatment is far superior to DIY ant control options because it kills the local colony, preventing reinfestation.
How long does it take to get rid of ants?
This depends on the size and severity of the ant infestation. Brisbane City Pest Control will evaluate your situation and provide an estimated timeline for complete eradication.
