Peter is a lifesaver! He provided invaluable ongoing advice to us over the phone when we were dealing with a potential bed bug infestation, and came out to our property to have a look (free of charge). Such incredible service and advice - thank you!

After the shock of finding termites in our garage I felt my luck had turned when I got in contact with Peter from Hindmarsh Pest Control. Peter is upfront, knowledgeable and just a nice guy. When Simon and his team came to do the job they were extremely thorough and helped a heap by answering all my stupid questions. Could not recommend them enough. Thanks guys

Simon did a fantastic job and the proof I have already seen, with dead spider sightings already. If you hate these things as much as I do you know it'simportant to see the body to make sure they are dead. Thanks again and I will get him back next time!

We love everything about Simon's work. He's reliable, professional, good value and most importantly; he's thorough and honest.Our previous experience with a larger well known pest company left us disappointed after they did not install the termite bates adequately. There was also no personal service like Simon provides us.My partner and I highly recommend Simon for your pest & termite issues, we're so happy, thank you Simon 🙂

Simon gave me a quote two and a half years ago but I opted to go with another company much to my dismay and dissatisfaction. Recently because of the ongoing termite problems in my home I am employed Simon and he has baited and inspected. He was punctual, reliable and has a thorough understanding of his trade. He was very informative answered all my questions clearly and spent many more hours on my property than originally anticipated however did not alter his original quote that he had given me. I would highly recommend Simon and his company to anybody who has any pest problems in their home

We found the signs of termites in our home 4 years ago and of the companies my husband called, Simon from HPC was the only one who came out to inspect that same day, on a Saturday afternoon. Fortunately the baiting removed all activity and we have continued monitoring and regular inspections, and feel secure in Simon's knowledge and expertise to keep our house safe. Very professional, reliable and responsive service and we would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Excellent company which is thorough and professional in every aspect. The job was not rushed and the pest controller, Paul, listened carefully to my request. The pool area was treated for ants, and the rest of the property for spiders and other unwanted insects. We have used them before and I would not hesitate to use them again. Highly recommend Hindmarsh Pest control.

I had a spider problem just after the completion of building my new home. Simon suggested a spider treatment, which worked a treat and I now have him spray my property every year as a precaution. He is very thorough and professional and I believe in supporting small local business so I would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Every ant problem is different. We discuss the problem with you first and carry out an inspection to identify the species of ant present and make sure we understand the full extent of the problem.

Our approach and potential outcome depends on the location of the problem and the ant species present.

Indoor ant problems:

Areas treated: Inside and outside the home.
Expectation: Kill the nest causing the problem or exclude ants from the house
Warranty: 3 month service free period

Outdoor ant problems:

Areas treated: Perimeter of the home and garden beds
Expectation: Suppress ant numbers
Warranty: No warranty*

Lawn ant problems:

Areas treated: Lawns
Expectation: Kill the nests in the lawn
Warranty: No warranty*

*We are unable to offer a warranty for outdoor and lawn treatments as we cannot prevent ants from outside the treated area moving back in. However, with a regular treatment plan, we can keep the ant problems under control.

To understand a bit more about our ant treatments it’s a good idea to understand how they work (see below).

For successful ant control it is important to correctly identify the ant species present and if possible, locate the nest.

To get lasting control, it’s important to kill the nest, and to kill the nest you need to kill the queen ant, otherwise the colony can recover. Even if we cannot locate the nest we have a range of products at our disposal to eliminate the colony.

Ant baits

Ant baits are the smart way to eliminate ant nests. They consist of an attractive food to ants and slow acting insecticide. Foraging ants feed on the bait, taking it back to the nest where it is fed to other nest mates, including the queen. Ant baits are relatively slow acting so that the bait gets spread around the nest before they realise something is wrong. As they are slow acting it can take anywhere between a couple of days and 1-2 weeks to kill the nest.

Hindmarsh Pest Control can access a range of different ant baits, each designed for the differing food preferences of the various ant species.

Ant sprays

Our specialist ant sprays are “non-repellent” which means ants will walk on a treated surface, picking up insecticide without noticing. These professional non-repellent insecticides are ideal for ant control. They are little slower acting than supermarket products – which is a good thing ­– as it allows effected ants to transfer insecticide to nest mates, magnifying its effect. These sprays are particularly important when dealing with major ant infestations

Invasive ants

Some ant species are known as “invasive ants”. These are not native ant species and have arrived in Australia from overseas in years past. These species are particularly difficult to control as they develop “super colonies” – each colony can take over a large area (sometime tens of kilometres and consists of multiple nests and multiple queens. As you can imagine, even with efforts to control ants on your property, there are plenty more ants ready to move in from next door! In such situations 100% control is impossible. However, with a regular ant treatment program, the ants can be kept in check.

How many visits are required?

It really depends on the ant species present and the size of the problem. Most indoor ant problems can be dealt with in a single visit, as they are often a result of activity from a single nest. But infestations of the “invasive ant” species will require an ongoing treatment plan. As always, we’ll review the situation and discuss your options.

There are three types of ant problems that can only be dealt with through a pest control treatment;

  • Ants nesting inside the house (often in the wall void or roof space)
  • Outdoor ant problems
  • Ants in the lawn.

However, there are few things you can do to prevent outdoor ants making their way indoors. Typically, they come inside when it’s hot or wet, looking for food, moisture or shelter.

  • Top tips to prevent ants coming inside:
  • Fill any cracks around windows and doors
  • Remove food sources
    • Clear up spilled food
    • Don’t leave pet food bowls out (especially with food in)
    • Don’t leave unwashed dishes on the side after meals
    • Make sure food is stored in tight fitting, “ant proof” containers
    • Rubbish should be put in sealed bas before placing in the bin
  • Remove sources of moisture
    • Clear up spills and dirty dishes
    • Fix any leaking taps or pipework
