You may have never noticed them before, and then seemingly over night you wake up to discover that your yard is covered in hundreds of little mounds. Funnel Ants seem to be moving into Northern Brisbane in massive numbers – it is not uncommon to see entire streets covered in their mounds. Although they aren’t aggressive, they are extremely destructive to a yard – we have had many complaints about mowing over the bumpy and uneven surface!
From talking to our customers we have not found a DIY fix that is successful in complete eradication. Because the funnel ants tunnel underground, it is very hard to find a product that penetrates through – and then you have to spend hours walking around your yard treating each individual nest!
A professional treatment by Sandgate Pest Control comes with a three month warranty and involves a technician either spraying all lawn areas, or spreading granules over the entire lawn. The products we use won’t actually kill the ants on contact – rather it infects them with a virus they carry back down into their tunnels and pass onto the other ants. This means we are able to successfully penetrate all areas underground.
