Common ant infestation problems
Within the UK, there are around 30 species of ants, although most live underground or in the countryside. The majority of our clients have a problem with the black garden ant (Lasius niger), which quickly becomes a pest once it makes its way into a property or causes damage. The garden ant is roughly 5mm long, it will be black or very dark brown in colour and is most likely to be found in gardens or kitchens. The ants are likely to be coming from a single nest with roughly 5000 worker ants and a single queen.
Another common ant in Blackheath, SE3 is the pharaoh ant, which is a major problem for large buildings, such as blocks of flats, offices and hospitals. Unlike garden ants, these ants have multiple queens which allow them to spread rapidly through a building unless they are exterminated quickly. They are roughly 2.5mm long and have a yellow body with a dark abdomen.
In recent years, carpenter ants have begun to cause a variety of ant infestation problems in Blackheath, SE3. They dig into wood within roof beams and floorboards, making large networks of tunnels full of their eggs. The nests can grow in size quickly, to a point where they can cause extensive structural damage. These ants are black and can vary in size, from six to 12mm in length.
Causes of ant infestations
Ants will find their way into a property at all times of the year, but the most common time is during the summer when the temperature increases. Ants will begin breeding as the temperature rises, leading to an increase in male ants and those coming into homes to find food for their new larvae. The ants have a pheromone trail, which they leave behind as they search for food. This trail will quickly attract thousands of other ants as they follow the successful path of the first ants.
The male ants grow wings during the breeding season to help them find a mate, so they can quickly become a problem as they swarm the home looking for an entry point. Although they will not cause physical harm they can be highly inconvenient and unsightly.
Over the counter treatments
A few ants can quickly become thousands, which many property owners believing they can eliminate them with a quick treatment themselves. Although there are over-the-counter ant infestation powders available, they are likely to only provide a temporary solution.
These do-it-yourself treatments are a lower concentration, so the ingredients adhere to health and safety regulations for untrained exterminators, which means they are very likely to be less effective. Depending on the species, spraying an insecticide could lead to the nest dividing into multiple colonies which will make the infestation worse and much harder to treat. The best way to remove an ant infestation is to hire a professional team, who will be able to get rid of the problem quickly.
The professional extermination process
Our qualified team will be able to identify the specific type quickly so that we can determine the most effective course of treatment. If you are suffering from an ant infestation we will assess the situation to quickly find the nest and apply a residual insecticide treatment, which is designed to achieve fast and permanent results. Depending on the situation, we have a variety of sprays, gels, powders and fogging treatments available.
We know that the removal of an infestation needs to address the cause of the problem so that you do not suffer repeat infestations year after year. Our service will not just address the ant infestation, we will work out how they found their way into your property. We will then find and eliminate the nest, to ensure the problem is eradicated.
