About ANts

Transparent Ant

With over 1300 different known species found in Australia, ants can be a particular problem forinner-westernSydneyhomes.along with all Australian territories and states. A large number of ant species prefer sunny, warm climates, which makesthe Australianenvironment a perfect place for these ant species to thrive.

Ants can cause harm to people in your home-while they do not carry disesae, they can cause painful bites, or have a swarming effect on your food. Most ants will enter your premises in search for food or other sweet and sticky substances. To best prevent ant infestations, it's important to clean up any food and liquid spills.
