Australian White Footed Ant
New Zealand has just 11 recognized species of native ants, all of which are endemic. However, 27 ant species have become established in New Zealand as a result of human error and trade .There are three common types of Pest ant Species that are seen around Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt and Porirua. They are Australian White Footed Ants, Argentine Ants and Darwinian Ants.
Argentine ants ((Linepithema humile) (Mayr)) are one of the world's most invasive and problematic ant species. They are very aggressive, and although they are not poisonous, they do bite people.
Argentine ants are easy to tell apart from other species due to their brownish red colour as most other household pest ant speciesare black. They are generally much smaller than other Pest Ant species at around 2-3mm long in size.
Argentine ants unlike other ant species cooperate with other Argentine nests and in winter have been known to band together and build super colonies.
Due to their sheer numbers, Argentine ants are often more aggressive than other species and compete with Animals and other insect species for food.
Our method of treatment for Argentine Ants is a baiting and/or spraying system. For Argentine Ants we generally do not need to treat inside your house and the treatment process is non invasive for the homeowner, tenant, occupier or commercial premises.
