Life Span

Ants breed extremely fast with a female having a life span of around 15 years, if no one stands on them. Some breeds of ants are very small and burrow and nest in large colonies out of sight. This makes it quite hard to determine the extent of the problem. Our expert team will find out in a very short space of time, and offer you the most appropriate, best solution. 

Ant colonies can usually be located by the surface dirt or soil left at the main entry points. As the little critters tunnel their way into the soil, the soil they dig out of their way leaves a tell-tale trail on the surface.  Tunnelling can be so extreme as to cause structural damage to pathways or garden areas, resulting in costly and time consuming repairs.  Pestshield Durban will employ a process that will leave you ant free and happy.
