Now the weather is warming up ants are starting to become active. The most common ant species we deal with is the Black Garden Ant. These are highly organised social insects and the foraging worker ants can invade buildings in search of food.
These are from 3 to 5mm in length and are attracted to sweet foodstuffs which they take back to the nest to feed to the larvae and queen. Our standard treatment for ants is to spray around the outside of the property with a long lasting residual insecticide, although depending on the type and severity of the problem other treatments are also used.
All of our treatments for Black Garden Ants come with a summer long guarantee against re-infestation inside the property.
