Ants

Black Ants

The presence of ants in domestic environments requires control when a food source attracts significant numbers to enter cupboards and penetrate stored food products. In warmer seasons ant swarms can give cause for alarm and irritation particularly in public places such as schools. Common Black Ants may occasionally bite however the sting of the Red Ant is aggravating and should be avoided.

Infestations of Pharaohs, Ghost and Argentine Ants in commercial and institutional environments requires control as movement can transfer disease organisms throughout a property with ease. Within Hospitals this provides a direct threat to patients, facilities and stored sterile products. Please call us without obligation on 01635 250 852

Garden Ants are common place and perform a number of important functions from a horticultural viewpoint. Frustratingly over time they disrupt paved areas and damage lawns although control is not suggested solely for these reasons. Both Black & Red Ants will swarm in mass during the summer, typically on humid afternoons. During this exodus males will mate on the fly and subsequently die. Mated females will seek to start a new colony.

The tropical species found in the UK – Pharaohs, Ghost and Argentine Ant require an ongoing program of control. Their biological characteristics allow them to move through properties without being reliant on single nests, In conjunction with their small form and broad palette control can challenging unless a professionally planned program is undertaken. This can be costly.
