Signs of Ant Infestation
Live ants – If you’re seeing large numbers of live ants in your home or workplace then you may well have an ant problem. If you find them in your kitchen or in areas where you prepare food, then you need to do something about it fast.
Ant pathways – Pathways in and out of your home or premises are another sign. Some types of ant will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This chemical attracts other ants to find the food.
Ant nest – A nest site can look like a small pile of soil or dirt. Some species of ant like to make their home in walls or other quiet, dark places, which are more difficult to spot.
Dealing with an Ant Infestation
DIY Products, like Ant Killer Gel, may help you get rid of small garden ant infestations. But for other species or larger ant problems, you should get in touch with our experts.
Pest Works Technicians understand the habits of different types of ants and can offer the most appropriate and effective ant control solutions. All our treatments are safe for your family and your pets.
The Pest Works team are experienced professionals that are authorised applicators of registered pesticides and engage in frequent training programmes to maintain their knowledge. They understand the habits of each species and use that knowledge when developing an ant control program for your home.
Get Rid of Ants in Your Home
Although many homeowners employ DIY ant control remedies, the results are often less than satisfactory. Small problems may develop into large ones and this is when many people seek out the services of a pest control professional.
Once we have identified the species of ant invading your home, we can use a range of powerful insecticides to get rid of ants efficiently. This gives you the reassurance that the problem has been dealt with fully.
Treatments are targeted to the specific ant species in order to solve the problem quickly, whilst ensuring the safety of your family and pets.
Once the ants have been dealt with, you can take precautions to stop them from coming back. One particularly important precaution is covering any food in storage areas.
Get Rid of Ants in Your Business
In the commercial environment ants are more than just a nuisance. They can cost you money and harm your reputation. This is particularly true in organisations that handle food or need to keep areas sterile.
Premises like pubs, restaurants, hospitals, offices, warehouses and other buildings that store food and water need to make sure they have the highest standards of hygiene, and that means being ant-free.
