Having ants pest control is very common in Singapore. Though they can be a nuisance within the home, they perform many ecological roles that are beneficial to humans. One of the key roles they play include the suppression of pest populations and aeration of the soil.
Aeration of the soil, is to perforate soil with tiny holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps roots grow deeper to produce much stronger terrain. They also aid hugely in housekeeping by removing any food debris and insect carcasses within the home and garden.
ANTS PEST CONTROL
Ants are present throughout the year. An Ant Nest is feeds 24 hours seven days a week. During rainy season, just like termites they produce alates to form new nests. They do this so as to not go extinct. Ants can nest within the garden soil or even in homes. Tiny cracks in floor or wall tiles, crevices of wooden door frames and fixtures are conducive nesting locations.
