Effective and Permanent Solutions

While home treatments may offer temporary relief, our Ant Pest Control Treatment provides a permanent solution to your ant problem.

Ants are social insects, and there are various species to consider. The most common types found in the UK include Garden or Black Ant (lasius niger) and Pharaoh Ant (monomorium pharaonis). It's worth noting that Pharaoh ants are originally from warmer climates and prefer nesting in areas that provide warmth and moisture. They are smaller than their Garden counterparts and have a body colour ranging from yellow to red-brown.

 

 

Understanding Ant Behaviour

 

In order to effectively control ant infestations, it's important to understand their behaviour. The worker ant is the most common type you'll encounter, while males and queens are winged varieties often seen flying around after thundery showers in summer as they mate. After mating, females lose their wings while males die shortly after sexual communion.

Worker Garden ants, measuring approximately 4mm long, are the most common species involved in infestations. They are black or dark brown in colour and typically smaller than males or females.

Why Do Ants Invade Our Homes?

Ants invade our homes because they share a love for the same food we do. Our cupboards become their dinner tables, making it easy for these little critters to contaminate our foodstuffs. While ants themselves may not carry diseases, their presence can be considered unhygienic as they walk across various surfaces before reaching our cupboards. Additionally, certain species of tropical ants are known to bite when aggravated.

 

 

 

The Importance of Proper Identification

 

Correctly identifying the ant species is crucial, especially when dealing with tropical species. Different species have different colony and caste systems, with some having multiple queens that can quickly rebuild scattered colonies. Using a home treatment before proper identification can worsen the situation and lead to the creation of multiple colonies.

Prevention Tips for Ant Infestations

 

To prevent ant infestations in your home, it's important to take certain measures:

  • Ensure food containers are adequately sealed.

  • Limit the amount of food left in open packets in cupboards.

  • Clean up spills and leakages promptly, paying special attention to areas under cookers or appliances.

  • Clear away pet bowls as soon as possible to minimize the risk of contamination.
