Advanced Solutions for Ant Removal

Have you been seeing ant nests along your driveway and paved areas? Or, are there ants inside your home? At Power Over Pests, we understand how ants behave and we know how to stop them in their tracks.

Some ants can cause property damage or itchy bites, while other ants are simply annoyances. Ants are very social creatures. If you see one or two ants, there are probably hundreds more on their way. Getting rid of the ants will most likely require finding and treating the colony. Coastal brown ants are one of the most common ants that we see here in Western Australia. This is an invasive species that is a danger to native Australian species, so it is important to keep the populations under control. However, there are other species that can also cause infestations on your property.
