The Great British weather does not often provide the hot temperatures suitable for many ant species. Yet, there are a few species that can be commonly found in homes and businesses across the UK, such as black or garden ants. While ants are not believed to carry diseases, they may have been foraging for food in unhygienic areas both indoors and outdoors. As a result, the last thing you will want is for them to enter your food cupboards or surfaces.
Ants will often travel in their established trails and will cluster around various sources of food. As a result, they can become an unhygienic, unsightly nuisance in your home or business. It is, therefore, essential to identify their origin, eliminate the infestation and seal off the entry point; for example, you may spot small piles of Earth around holes in soil, or you may notice holes at the base of your exterior walls. You can also prevent an ant infestation by effectively covering food sources and cleaning sticky residues on surfaces, such as worktops, as the insects are commonly attracted to sweet foodstuffs.
If you notice a large number of live ants in your home or business, it is possible you have an infestation problem. Don’t allow an ant colony to invade your home or commercial space, as an infestation can quickly grow out of control. The average ant colony is believed to range from hundreds to millions of ants. Our experienced pest controllers have extensive experience eradicating an infestation in a swift, safe and hassle-free manner. Our professional ant removal Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, will effectively track how the insects are entering your property. Once they have identified the source of the infestation, a pest controller will block off their access and eliminate the ant colony from your domestic or commercial property.
Our pest control experts can also provide recommendations on how to prevent an ant infestation in the future. For example, ants commonly detest the smell of vinegar, which can also mask the scent of their established trails. You can also prevent an infestation by not giving the insects a reason to invade your home. For example, ensure you do not leave any dirty dishes in your sink and maintain clean worktops, floors and surfaces.
