Signs of an Ant Infestation
If you’ve seen a few ants scuttling around on the floor, they might be just having a look around. However, they might be the sign of a larger ant infestation.
Ants Infestation Signs
Live ants - If you’re seeing large numbers of live ants then you may well have a problem. If you find them in your kitchen or in areas where you prepare food, then you need to do something about it fast.
Ant pathways - In and out of your home or premises are another sign. Some types of ant will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This chemical attracts other ants to find the food.
Ant nest - A nest site can look like a small pile of soil or dirt. Some species of ant like to make their home in walls or other quiet, dark places, which are more difficult to spot.
How To Deal with an Ant Infestation
Our Pest Control Technicians understand the habits of different types of ant and can offer the most appropriate and effective solution. All our treatments are safe for your family and your pets.
• Ants belong to the insect order Hymenoptera. They are close relatives of bees and wasps.
• Each colony can hold up to half a million ants. They can all get up and go very quickly if the colony is threatened.
• Worker ants can live for up to seven years, while a queen can live for up to 15 years.
• Ants swarm once every year in August. The young queens fly away and set up their own, new colonies. If you hear people talking about flying ants, this may be the swarm they are referring to, or they could be termite alates (winged reproductives).
How to Prevent Ants
If you’re worried that you might be at risk from an ant infestation you can put in place some simple ant repellant and ant deterrent measures. The checklist below will help you keep your home or business free from ants, or make sure your infestation doesn’t grow. Most ants only come into your home to look for food. They are attracted to anything that’s sweet and sticky, which is why you find ants in kitchen cupboards or areas where food is kept.
With that in mind it’s important to not leave temptation in their path. To get rid of ants you must remember to:
Clear up - food and liquid spillages immediately.
Sweep up - any food crumbs from under your kitchen appliances and units.
Store your food - in airtight containers wherever possible.
If you have a pet - clear away any food that isn’t eaten straight away.
Block off - the entry points for ants by sealing all cracks and crevices around your doors and window frames.
In the garden - keep your compost enclosed and make sure all rubbish bins have tightly sealed lids.
Above all, cover any food in storage areas - you don’t know where ants have been walking before they march across your food.
If you’re finding it hard to get rid of ants call ecofumitech to arrange an appointment.
FACT: Once an ant has discovered a food source it leaves a pheromone trail. This chemical helps other ants from the colony to find the food too
