As the majority of ant species prefer warmer temperatures, our climate is a very suitable environment for many of them. The species present here in our environment can be a nuisance if they enter your home. It is not believed that black ants in the garden carry diseases, but the problem lies when the ants search for food in the external environment, and therefore we do not want them to search for food inside our cupboards at home!
Rentokil Boecker® professionals will provide effective and individually tailored treatments to eliminate ants in your premises. Our team of ant professionals is experienced and knowledgeable in providing targeted solutions most suited to your specific problem.
Although many homeowners struggle with do-it-yourself ant control remedies the results are often less than satisfactory. Small problems can develop into large ones and this is when many people seek out the services of a pest control professional.
Once our team identifies your ants, they then use a range of powerful insecticides to deal with them efficiently. This gives you the reassurance that the problem has been fully dealt with. Treatments are targeted to your specific ant species in order to solve the problem quickly, whilst ensuring the safety of your family and pets, such as:
- Application of gel droplets in cracks and crevices and around entry points.
- Application of baits near ants’ food sources and inside cracks and crevices.
- Microencapsulated pesticide inside the nest - when found - and on ants’ trails.
- Pouring hot boiling water inside the nest, whenever found outside.
- Vacuuming for small infestations
Once the ants have been dealt with, you can take precautions to stop them coming back. One particularly important precaution is covering any food in storage areas - you don’t know where ants have been walking before they march across your food.
In the commercial environment ants are more than just a nuisance. They can cost you money and harm your reputation. This is particularly true in organisations that handle food or need to keep areas sterile.
Premises like pubs, restaurants, hospitals, offices, warehouses and other buildings that store food and water need to make sure they have the highest standards of hygiene – and that means being ant-free. Without adequate ant control in your business, you could suffer from:
Our pest control professionals understand the habits of different types of ants and can offer discreet and targeted ant control. It goes without saying that all our treatments are safe for your staff and customers. We can also set up regular ant control inspections for you so the problem doesn’t come back.
All Rentokil Boecker® professionals are highly qualified and trained to industry standards. Our local teams offer a wide range of global innovations and ant control solutions for the most effective outcome.
Your ant control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to manage them in your home or business. The first step in determining the cost of ant control is fully understanding the problem.
To answer all the above questions, Rentokil Boecker® will need to visit your property to inspect for ants. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable ant treatment and its associated costs.
There are five main types of ants that can cause concern. The common black ants, crazy ants, samsun ants, pharaoh ants and ghost ants. They are a common pest in both private homes and businesses. Identifying the type of ant infestation plays a key role in the solutions your Rentokil Boecker® professionals will recommend.
The size of your property and premises will have a direct impact on the type of ant treatment used and the number of follow-up treatments required.
If many ants are present, or if there is a large amount of rat damage within your property, you may require more extensive treatment. Often, the current rat infestation will need to be managed before a permanent control solution is installed.
