Ant & Spider control Hobart

Crawling insects are the most common pest problem Tasmanian homes and businesses face. Ant infestations can range from mild to severe, building their nests in your paths, roof, walls and insulation. Scorpion technicians will inspect the property and decide what method of Pest control to use.

Ant control: All ant services begin with a thorough inspection in and around the building structure, including gardens and paths. The primary goal is to locate and treat as many ant colonies as possible. Scorpions technicians will inspect problem areas, following ant trails to locate nesting sites and determine where ants are entering and feeding in your home. During the inspection, we will identify the ant species to determine the best method of treatment. The main species encountered in Tasmania are Black house ants & Argentine Ants.

Spider control: Spiders are a common pest in Tasmanian households. Often found in dark damp areas and cracks and crevices. Our technicians are experienced in identifying problematic areas and applying pesticides designed to target and provide continual protection from spiders!

Methods of treatment may include:   
Insecticidal dusts
Liquid ant baits
Insecticidal spray
