Ants love Brisbane because of its warm and cozy climate. There are over 1,000 species of ants found in Australia, so they can be anywhere. If you’re home happens to provide food, water and shelter that ants love, ants can potentially invade your home.
Summertime seems like the most perfect weather, especially for doing activities outdoors. But it is also the most active period for pests in Australia. The warm temperature is the sign for pests to find food and reproduce, so very extra vigilant to make sure general pests like cockroaches, fleas, ants, termites, etc. don’t set up nests in your home.
