With over 55 years of experience in professional ant control, Rentokil Hong Kong can help you eliminate these troublesome pests from your home or business. Ants are incredibly capable and intelligent creatures. Though harmless, they can be a nuisance when they get into your home or business premises. Their complex and cooperative societies allow them to survive and thrive in conditions that would be otherwise challenging to us.
Found traces of pests? You need the advice of a professional pest exterminator company. In addition to ants, Rentokil provides all-in-one pest control services for various common pests in Hong Kong including rats and mice, bed bugs, termites, cockroaches, etc.
Technicians will inspect problem areas, following ant trails to locate nesting sites and determine where ants are entering and feeding. During the inspection, your Rentokil expert will identify the ant species and its feeding habits. This will inform the baiting method chosen (e.g. the use of sugar or protein based baits).
Baits are particularly useful in controlling some species of ant. It is a relatively slow procedure so may require perseverance - but it is effective. Ant baits are a mixture of insecticide and food items such as sugar, designed to attract pests. Baits work well where the ant nest is inaccessible for treating with other chemicals and can kill an entire colony when worker ants find the bait and carry small quantities back to their nest where they feed it to the Queen, brood and other worker ants.
Insecticide treatments may be applied through spray to nesting sites, areas of ant access and travel such as paths, skirting boards, window sills, cupboards, cracks and crevices. Insecticides can also be used for treating nests located in enclosed spaces with sites of activity, or as a barrier method around the property.
All Rentokil technicians are highly qualified and trained to industry standards. Rentokil Hong Kong fulfills the global standards and was awarded the ISO Certifications by BSI - ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001. Our local teams offer a wide range of global innovations and termite control solutions for the most effective outcome.
Your ant control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to manage them in your home or business. The first step in determining the cost of ant control is fully understanding the problem. Why do ants suddenly appear? What causes ants in the room? What stops ants from coming into the house?
To answer all the above questions, Rentokil will need to visit your property to inspect for ants. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable ant treatment and its associated costs.
The larger the property, the more time required to successfully locate and treat the ant problem. This will have an effect on the cost of the treatment.
The treatment required to address the ant infestation will relate to the overall costs of the service. There may be a need to combine ant control treatments methods and use them in conjunction with each other, whilst at other times one method may suffice.
Sometimes ant management requires multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected with the pricing of the ant control service.
The size and extent of the ant infestation in your home or business affect the costs of the ant treatment service. Problem ants are often perceived as those that have established residence within a property. They are commonly soldier ants on a mission to return to their nest with food supply.

How long it takes to get rid of an ant infestation depends on several factors, including: Size of infestation, ant species, and methods used to control it. It generally takes days or weeks to completely eliminate an ant infestation. Here are some factors that may affect the timeline for eradicating the ant infestation.
It is also important to note that it can be difficult to completely eliminate ant infestations, especially if the colony is located in a difficult-to-access area. In some cases, ongoing prevention and professional pest control measures may be necessary to keep the ants from returning. If you have trouble getting rid of the ant infestation, contact a pest control company.
Ants may return after eradication, especially if the source of infection is not properly identified and treated. Here are some reasons why exterminated ants come back:
To prevent ants from returning after eradication, it is important to identify and treat the source of entry, seal the entry point, and eliminate sources of food and water that may attract ants. Regular cleaning and grooming will also help prevent recurrence. If the ant problem persists after eradication, contact an exterminator for assistance.
