Are Bull Ants Pestering Your Home Lake Illawarra?

The Bulldog Ant is one of the largest types of rodents in Lake Illawarra Australia and steps about 15-36mm long. It’s also known as Bull Ant or Jumper Ant, is red/black and has exceptionally long, straight, distinctive mandibles that make them recognisable with substantial eyes.

The Bull Ant forages for a protein based diet which predominantly includes other insects. They also enjoy nectar, seeds and fruits. Colonies tend to be small but the queen does invade other colonies and take them captive, killing the first queen.

Though ants are known to consume sweets, the Bull ant’s diet contains mainly with protein, which they may get from other insects like bugs, etc.. They also enjoy consuming fruits, nectar and seeds. They also have the capability to invade other colonies. The queen can take over other colonies by killing the original queen and make the other ants their captive.

Bull ants are widely distributed across all Australian states. They are extremely competitive and are great seekers of larger insects. They are found outdoors, nestling in bushy places, hollow tree trunks and rotten log. They can gain entry inside the home or some other buildings through small cracks and holes. The nest can be difficult to locate since it as it features a small opening that’s covered In moss and debris. They will attack when they are threatened and intruders come near their nest.

Great company, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and awesome results. Called Andrew and let him know what we were seeing. Andrew was wonderful, helped me determine what type of creepy crawlers we had in our home and was able to get someone out really quick. Adam came out to treat our apartment for cockroaches and from start to finish I was super impressed. Adam was friendly, answered all my questions, and gave me some insight and tips to help with our problem. Local Pest Control is a reliable and effective company who I won’t hesitate to call again! Highly recommend.

Have you spotted any bull ants?

If you have seen a few ants scuttling around on the floor, they might be just having a look around. However, they might be the sign of a bigger ant infestation. Make sure to keep these signs in mind when spotting ants:

Presence of live ants

If you’re seeing large numbers of live ants around Lake Illawarrathen you may well have a problem. If you find them in your kitchen or in areas in which you prepare food, then you need to do something about it quickly. Ant pathways – in and outside of your home or premises are another sign. Some kinds of ants will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This compound attracts other ants to obtain the food.

Ant Nest

A nest site can look like a small pile of dirt or soil. Some species of ant like to make their home in walls or other quiet, dark places, which can be more difficult to spot.

How do you ant-proof your home?

Most ants come in your home looking for food. They’re attracted to sweet and sticky substances. Here’s how you could ant-proof your Lake Illawarra house:

    • Keep your food and food storage clean and tightly sealed
    • Keep your kitchen and dining area mess-free
    • Maintain cleanliness of these beneath the kitchen appliances
    • Ensure garbage bins are closed and moist trash is disposed of immediately
    • Keep compost piles coated
    • Put away pet food, container and litter away once your pet is finished using it

You can also seal small cracks and holes and any access points you can find in your house to prevent ants from gaining entry.
