Ant pest control is a service frequently requested at Invicta. Ants can arrive in your property in very large numbers and can be horrific for some people, especially when they fly. The sign of many ants crawling through our property is never a welcome sight.
Whilst there are a number of species of ants present in the UK, the most common species that we tend to tackle with our ant pest control service is the common black garden ant (Lasius niger). Whilst this is the most common, there are other species of ant that can cause issues in a commercial or residential property. This is important to note, as the species of ant can sometimes influence the best course of action from a pest control perspective.
How do you treat an ant infestation?
There are a number of different ways to treat an ant infestation, and whilst there are generic ant killing products available, it’s never a ‘one size fits all’ approach, off the shelf products are always a compromise as lower concentrations and different active ingredients mean they aren’t up to the job and can often disperse insects who avoid these treatments.
The first step to treating an ant infestation is understanding the species of ant that you’re dealing with. Whilst you might be able to get an idea of the species of ant in your property, it’s always best to get a professional to confirm this so the right treatment is put in place.
Once you’ve identified the species of ant, you’ll then be able to diagnose where their nest is most likely to be located, as well as the food/elements that are attracting them to your house.
When it comes to treating an ant infestation, as with many forms of pests, the best way is to seek preventive measures. Our team offers ant pest control plans which help you to stay one step ahead of a potential infestation at all times.
