Signs of an Ant Infestation

Signs to look out for that will indicate if you have an ant infestation are Small mounds and heaps of earth, dirt or soil around holes on various surfaces which will give an indication of ants beneath the surface. If ant infestations are left untreated it can lead to your entire house or business needing a full treatment, meaning your having to find alternative accommodation while your home or business is chemically treated for these pests – so it’s best to contact us right away if you think you have an infestation, to prevent the problem getting to an out of control level and nip the problem in the bud. As stated ants can invade homes and businesses.

The Threat They Pose

Ants will contaminate food stocks and food surfaces as they search for various food sources and if ignored and not dealt with at the early stages they can infest entire buildings. However infestations are common in the summer months and they can potentially start an infestation in a warm area or location in your home and grow – away from the weather conditions outside. The most common type you will find will be the Garden/ Black ant variety. Ants like most pests will pass through untold materials, dirt and bacteria in search of their food sources and it’s what they bring with them on their travels that cause the contamination and problems for your health. Ants will travel a much wider range than other pests, in their search for food. Although you will more commonly see ants marching in little groups across a surface, you do see large group of flying ants – this is male and female black garden ants they mate on the wing. These ants have the sole purpose of reproducing and once they have successfully mated the males die and the females (queens] carry on to start a new cell.
