Ant Control Hawkes Bay

Ants : One of the hardest insects to control

When ants begin to infest homes, they fall into the category of a nuisance pest. Some species can also
be a public health problem and can short circuit electrical components enough to cause fires. Their
social organisation, diversity, and adaptability in the urban environment have made ants the number
one pest for Pest Managers and householders alike in New Zealand.

Say Goodbye to Ants with Ace Eradicators Pest Control

Our recommendation for vacating the premises after the pest control treatment, is (2) hours. In the case of those with respiratory problems (e.g. Asthma), allergies and hypersensitivity to chemicals, we recommend a longer period.

Upon your return, open all windows and doors to ventilate the premises.

You may notice a slight odour from our treatment materials.

Where a residual spray has been applied (inside), it is done so to control the remaining insects and also prevent the pests from re-establishing themselves.
