Ants

The most common kind of ant is the Black Garden Ant. They are highly organised social insects. It is the foraging worker ants that 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.

Flying ants are the reproductive males and females. Mating takes place in the air and the female then seeks out a nest site where she stays for the winter, laying eggs the following spring in order to start up a new colony.

Problems Caused by Ants

  • Disease transmission
  • Inflamed skin
  • Lawns and gardens damaged from nests.

Treatment of Ants

We use a integrated pest management system in dealing with pests. Depending on type of Ants we use either residual insecticide spray / dust or insecticide gel bait.
