I see black ants activity in the house and garden - how do you treat for the ants and do you spray inside the house?

Flick recommends that the garden area is sprayed and any visible nest holes injected. We have two alternatives to treat internally- either a spray application or a gel formulation.

I see small and big bugs in the kitchen cupboards and pantry. Do we have to unpack the cupboards for treatment to be applied?

For any spray application undertaken in kitchen cupboards, we recommend that any cutlery, crockery and open food stuffs to be removed during the application.

We do also have a gel bait we can apply, which doesn’t require anything to be removed from the cupboards.

The severity of the infestation will determine which treatment is most appropriate and whether cupboards will require unpacking.
