Why Ants Are a Problem
Ants may be fascinating creatures, but they can also be a big problem for Western Australia homeowners. These tiny insects march in by the thousands and can be difficult to control. Some types of ants can bite humans and pets and may even cause damage to your property. Each ant colony will have a queen whose sole job is to produce as much offspring as possible. That’s how ants can reproduce so quickly! Queen ants can live for 10 or more years and can lay countless eggs at a time.
