The majority of ant species prefer warmer climates, and the UK temperature is not best suited for many of them. However, the type of ants found in the UK can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black Ants aren’t known to carry diseases, and the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside.
So the last place you want an army of ants is marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel far distances in search for food, following chemical trails they have established and clustering around the source of food.
As the ant’s cluster this becomes a nuisance in businesses and homes. Outside, small piles of earth around holes in the soil and at the base of exterior walls can indicate their origin.
Types of Ants
There are two common types of ant problems that we encounter regularly.
- Ants that live outside and forage inside
- Ants that already built a nest inside
Your ant control will depend on the type of ant infestation and size of the ant colony. Identifying which kind of ants you have is helpful, to work out the best way to treat the ant removal. It is also useful to use a magnifying glass to inspect ant trails and nests.
To control your ant problem, an inspection is the first step.
To find the ant nest, we need to follow their trails. Ants lay down a chemical pheromone, and they leave it along with their established routes to and from a food source so the other ants can easily find the food.
Inside your house, we inspect along the carpet edges, doors, windows, and all areas of the kitchen. The easiest way to find an ant trail to the nest is to watch where ants go after reaching the food source.
Outside your home, we inspect around foundation walls and areas of vegetation. Any plants or shrubs found near patios and walls may hide an ant nest or their trails. We check under any item that is on the ground as some ant nests are well protected.
