Pest Control for Ants

British Pest Control Association Member
Ant infestations can be more than an unsightly nuisance. They can contaminate kitchen worktops, shelves and cupboards and if they get into your stored food they can contaminate that as well.

Treating an ant infestation can be tricky. Ants live in colonies so getting rid of a few stray ants may not solve the bigger problem.

Even if you spot just one or a few ants, especially in your kitchen, it may be a sign that more are on the way because once an ant finds a food source (they prefer sweet or protein based foods) they will leave a trail of pheromones everywhere they go which acts as a road map for other ants to follow straight back to the food source.

The Need for Immediate Action

Pests can pose major health and safety risks.We strongly recommend two things:1. Do not ignore the problem.2. Act immediately!Do you know exactly what kind of pest problem you have? Some pests, like wasps, are obvious but how do you know if you have rats or mice, house flies or cluster flies, bed bugs or fleas?

Quick, Thorough and Effective Pest Control

Our trained technicians are always quick to respond. We will visit your home or place of business, carry out a thorough survey and recommend the best course of action for eliminating the pests.

So from start to finish your pest problem will be thoroughly investigated and treated as quickly as possible reducing the chance of becoming worse and raise the chance of it not happening again by offering advice on preventative measures.

Why Are Ants Pests?

Garden ants or black ants become a major annoyance to family homes and garden areas from early spring time through to late summer.

Ants will make attempts to invade your property foraging for a food source where, if their preferred option of a sweet food is not available, the ants will attempt to hunt for high protein foods. They will clamber over anything and everything spreading germs and contaminating food as they go.

Some ant related facts:

  • Black Ants can burrow through bricks and mortar.
  • Ants and humans like the same food – sweets, meat, starches and liquids.
  • They contaminate food and surfaces that they’ve crawled over.
  • Black Ants ‘farm’ Aphids as a food source. The Aphids feed on your garden plants.
  • There are 1 million ants for every human on Earth.
  • An average Black Ant colony contains 4,000 – 7,000 worker ants.

Our Solution

C Hanlon Pest Control’s fully trained and experienced pest control technicians are well versed in surveying properties, detecting ant nests and treating them quickly, efficiently, safely and discretely so that ant infestations are no longer a problem. They can identify what type of ant is responsible and applying the appropriate and most efficient treatment. They can also advise on the best course of prevention you can take to avoid future ant infestations. Only pesticides that are not harmful to humans and pets are used.

Individual spraying of ants won’t have any lasting effect. C Hanlon Pest Control will eliminate the nest and destroy the colony.

  • Our technicians are experienced in identifying ant species and their habits.
  • If the nest can be located we use a specialised insecticide spray.
  • If the nest can’t be located we use a toxic gel bait which is carried by the worker ants to the nest to feed the queen, destroying the colony.
  • The insecticides we use are extremely effective and safe to use around your home and garden.
