Argentine Ant Treatment in Perth
Argentine ants are a small but tenacious species that can infiltrate homes and businesses in Western Australia through even the tiniest cracks and holes. Their colonies can be found in a variety of places, including the ground, concrete walls, and among household items. Although they tend to nest shallowly in natural outdoor areas, they are known to take over abandoned colonies of larger species.
As a common household pest, Argentine ants are attracted to food and water and may seek refuge indoors during extreme weather conditions. To effectively control an Argentine ant infestation, it is essential to use targeted treatment methods that take into account their unique nesting habits and behavior.

Perth Black Ant Control
Black Ants, a species native to Australia, are often attracted to sweet liquids and food particles, and can be commonly found in kitchens, laundries, and bathrooms. A typical Black Ant colony can accommodate a population of around 4,000 to 7,000 individuals. The queen Black Ant, the central figure of every active colony, can live up to 15 years. In their formative stages, Black Ant populations may have multiple queens in the nest, which can tolerate each other until the first workers emerge. Once the workers appear, the queens fight for survival and dominance until only one remains.
Black Ants can be identified by their black, glossy appearance and their length of about 3-5mm. As the colony grows, Black Ants tend to increase in size over time. If left uncontrolled, these ants can become a persistent and frustrating household pest.
Coastal Brown Ant treatment in Perth
For Coastal Brown Ant treatment in Perth, TMO offers effective ant pest control services. Coastal Brown Ants, also known as big-headed ants, are an introduced species in Australia. They have become a major pest ant species.
Their adaptability and ability to blend into the Australian bushland and coastal regions, due to their golden brown color, make them hard to detect. They have two raised nodes, a visible spine on their thorax, and 12 segmented antennae that finish with a three-segmented club.
Their large, pronounced heads are characteristic of the worker ants. These soil-nesting ants remove soil and leave significant mounds of dirt next to the nest opening. Colonies can be so large that they stretch beyond property boundaries and often have multiple queens, forming a ‘super-colony’. Coastal Brown Ants are common in urban dwellings and rural areas. TMO’s ant pest control services can effectively eliminate these invasive pests.
Bull Ant Control in Perth
Sergeant ants are known as Bull ants or inch ants, are a native species of Australia. Bull ants are commonly found in most states and landscapes. They are easily identifiable due to their large size and peculiar shape. With their large mandibles, compound eyes that provide excellent vision, and a powerful sting used to immobilise prey. Bull Ants are a formidable species. Interestingly, each eye of a Bull Ant contains 3,000 facets, the second-highest among all ant species.
The larger Bull Ant workers forage for food or stand guard outside the nest while smaller workers tend to the offspring. They search for nectar or scavenge the remains of insect and animal prey, gathering enough food to sustain the entire colony. Bull Ants display defensive behaviour around their nests but tend to be less aggressive while foraging. However, they can become extremely hostile towards intruders. Especially if their nest is disturbed, a large force of workers rapidly swarms out in defence.
Bull Ants are frequently encountered by humans in various settings, including homes, businesses, and nature. They are capable of stinging through fabric, making it important to wear closed footwear like boots or sneakers to reduce the risk of being stung. At TMO Pest Control Perth, we provide effective management of all pest control Perth infestations, including Bull Ants.
