Combatting pests using advanced solutions and modern technologies


Ants are some of our smallest insects and yet they can become some of our biggest problem pests. While they prefer warmer climates, it’s not unusual to find both black and garden ants in our homes and yards. Large ant colonies can become a nuisance even if they don’t carry diseases.

Ants will travel far and wide in pursuit of food, making them a problem for both homeowners and businesses. You don’t know what they’re bringing indoors after foraging outside but you certainly don’t want them in your kitchen or canteen! Signs of ant presence include mounds of soil at the base of exterior and interior walls or around small holes in the ground.

Ants in House or Garden?

If you’re seeing evidence of ants in your house or the garden, some action can be taken to control them before they become a serious pest.

  • Always keep food covered, sealed in a cupboared where ants aren’t able to reach it.
  • Ants are attracted to sweetness so clean up any spills or sticky remains on kitchen countertops, worktops and other surfaces.
  • Observe their movements and identify the ants’ entry point before sealing it to prevent them from coming into your house.

If the above steps don’t bring the problem under control, call on our technicians who are skilled in both residential and commercial pest control. Our team of experts uses a range of effective, professional and proven techniques to eradicate ants, quickly and safely.
