Ants, both natural to New Zealand and imported super colonies with multiple queens and cooperative nest orders, are all over Auckland. Unlike many other insects considered pests in and around the home or office, ants can be unpredictable and will often be a problem all year round.
Sometimes, they can be active in the summer months, during warmer temperatures, seeking nutrition for thriving nests. Other times, you can find them tenaciously foraging for shelter and food during colder climates, often making nests inside walls, subfloors, under difficult to reach decking, spa pools and ceiling cavities.

Ants are remarkably hard working and have a nest hierarchy which can make managing an infestation difficult. They are very hardy and have been known to create suicidal bridges of worker ants to allow colony members to cross areas contaminated by residual insecticide. Queens that have been alerted to threats will move nests into other locations to prevent total collapse of the nest from chemical threats.
The sheer numbers of cooperating super colony ants often means conventional treatments, such as baiting and residual insecticide, may not work. These treatments are often overburdened by the never-ending numbers of worker ants being constantly recruited.
As a result, businesses and homeowners that want to take care of their ant problem for good will require more permanent pest control. This often requires more than the conventional ant pest control Auckland agencies traditionally offer.
