Ants Provide Problems For Homeowners
With ants being the most prolific pest in the UK, homeowners are increasingly turning to pest control professionals to eliminate their ant infestations, rather than rely on over-the-counter remedies.
If ants only appeared during picnics, perhaps they’d be easier to tolerate. Instead, they can make their way through the tiniest gaps and appear unwelcome in most any area of the home.
As the number one "nuisance pest" in the UK, garden ants enter homes to find food and water. This means that no matter how a home is constructed, where it’s located or how old it is, it could be invaded by ants.
This year, as homeowners scurry around to buy traps and over-the-counter remedies, experts are leaning the other way and advising of the newest professional treatment trend.
We hear from frustrated callers every week who have unsuccessfully tried every do-it-yourself ant control product on the shelf. When you add up the time and money they’ve spent trying to rid their homes of ants, it would have been less expensive and a whole lot easier to call a pest professional to get it done right the first time.
Effective ant control begins with a professional inspection and treatments using the most technologically advanced products available. Professional insecticides are undetectable, allowing the ants to pass through the treated zone and become carriers, spreading the treatment to other ants they contact.
A pest professional can apply insecticide to trouble spots inside your home and around your property’s foundations to reach the outdoor nests where the ants live. Most ant species are controlled within a week of application.
Homeowner mentality is quickly shifting toward this time-efficient, affordable, peace of mind outlook that comes with having a pest professional tackle ant invasions. Today, the sight of a pest management vehicle outside an ant-infested home signifies a determined, intelligent means of detecting and ridding a home of a pest that poses a major threat to homes, apartments and other structures in the area.
Ants need food and water, and they need a way to gain access to a property. Since they can be very persistent, residents need to be just as persistent by taking some simple steps toward controlling these nuisance pests.
- Inside, clean up spilled food and beverages, diligently take out the rubbish and rinse out jars and containers before placing them in dustbins and recycling bins.
- Outside, seal doors and windows, keep rain gutters clean to prevent moisture inside walls and trim trees and shrubs away from the house.
