Do you have an Ant Infestation? Call us on
Ants are a public health pest, they can transport bacteria and viruses whilst foraging for food in your kitchen.
The most common ant problem is when they enter customers homes looking/foraging for food, the nest may be in the garden or within the fabric of the house, the ants then enter the house through minute entrance points and are voracious feeders, finding food in most situations, occasionaly even inside dishwashers where they start to clean up last nights dinner !! They have the ability tocommunicate the location of food supplies to other workers within the nest and before long there are hundreds if not thousands of ants feeding or on route to the food in very regimental and organised long lines. Whilst doing this foraging, ants can transport all sorts of bacteria and viruses to surfaces within your house and kitchen, for this reason they need to be controlled and normally only professional pest controllers can completely eliminate an ant infestation.
Ants are also a problem in restaurants and pubs and also hospitals, tansporting hidden dangers with them wherever they go.
In July, sometimes June depending on how warm it is there will be a hatch day where ants all across the country send off their winged and fertile males and females to breed and find a homesite all of their own (the male dies after mating) this can be one of natures spectacular events with what seems like millions of flying ants everywhere, it is spectacular and can fill a room up with flying ants quite quickly.
To treat ants professional pest controllers do not need to find the nest, we can spray a residual insecticide in the area and let the ants take it back to the nest themselves and so destroying it.
