Ants are fairly common place in almost all parts of Australia and are readily found in the Ballarat region.
Ants play an important role in the ecosystem they exist within, this however, does NOT mean you need to tolerate them in or around your home. With an estimated 3000+ ant species within Australia you’re bound to come across them one way or another.
Ants are social insects by nature that typically live in colonies within nests and with so many different types of ants their nesting varies considerably. Some ants can nest within wall cavities in your home, around your garden or even under flooring.
Ants are considered a pest when found in and around buildings and although they are very familiar to most people not many are familiar with the health risks associated with Ants. Ants are known to carry diseases on their bodies including smallpox and pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella. This is of particular concern when ants are commonly found scavenging in your kitchen!
Not only do ants come into your home to feed they may also seek refuge or harbourage in warm, areas like bathrooms and toilets! We commonly see this through the winter months especially towards the end of Autumn. Ants that move their whole nest inside your home will typically carry little while eggs and pupae with them and congregate in showers, bath tubs, under cabinets and even in wall cavities and roof voids etc. They do this to remain strong, viable and healthy when the climatic conditions outside aren’t suitable for them!
