Removing and Controlling Ant Problems

Ant Control
Ants are the number 1 problem in the UK and they belong to the same group of 'pests' as bees and wasps. The garden ant is one of the most common insects that invade our homes and property. Ant infestations are nasty and intrusive, ants enter property in search of food. They most commonly nest outside under paving, in walls and in the grass and shrubs. Ant control and removal of ants in the home is one of the most common problems especially in the summer months.

Worker ants build and maintain the nests. Female ants lay eggs that produce in April which is why you see many more ants in Summer months. Flying ants are the reproductive male and female ants and they reproduce by swarming and flying in the air. The female then detracts to her nest for the winter months, before a new wave of working ants emerge from her nest the following Spring.

Disease and Dangers

Ant Extermination
While most ants do not pose a significant health risk to humans, some species of ant tend to inhabit grubby areas and may carry diseases on their bodies and fire ant stings can cause severe allergic reactions, including chest pain, nausea, severe sweating, loss of breath, serious swelling, and slurred speech, and be fatal if not treated..

Food sources must be protected if you have an infestation in or near your home. If you have ants in your home or property they are in there to get food, they can smell it and know where to find it. Take all precautions until we get there, and you can call us for advice if you are unsure what to do. We are here to help and advise in any way we can.
