North Shore's TOP Ant Management
Ants have a range of habits: some are solitary, some live in large colonies; some are plant feeders and some are parasites or predators. They use their mandibles to chew wood and build nests to contain their colonies, stop this happening by getting Pest Control Auckland services- ACES | ants involved. The colony survives through a system of dividing the labor of building and maintaining it among individuals. Queens originate the colony and lay eggs; workers, which are sterile females, gather food, maintain and repair, and defend the colony.
New ant colonies usually start with a mating flight: males and females fly from the nest and mate in the air or on the ground. After mating, the female forms a nest by making a brood chamber, and begins laying eggs. Workers of the first brood forage and feed the queen, expand the nest, and care for the next brood. The founding queen continues to lay eggs and remains in the nest. When the colony reaches a size of several thousand workers, the queen lays eggs that develop into reproductive females and males, and the process starts over. This is is example of how difficult ants are to successfully control and why you should consider engaging the services of Auckland ant exterminators Professionals like ACES| Ants

Best practice technique
At ACES pest control we target the ant colony with the aim of getting a longer lasting result.
In 2020 we attended the NPMA ( virtually) and attended the session on treating ant SUPER colonies. We were interested to find out that the NMPA considers the Argentine ant a species that can form SUPER colonies. We were also please to find out that the best practice in the USA for ant treatments is to exclusively use products with a transfer property. Also that their focus is always outside and there is never an interior spray. Sound familiar? That's what we have been doing at ACES pest control for the last decade! We amp this technique up by adding in our focus on the species of the ant in your home. Tailoring our technique to your individual situation.
