Environmental problems Pest control - identifying your pest


Garden ants are usually found during spring and summer months outdoors in lawns, flowerbeds, beneath paving slabs and at the base of walls. Ants can enter buildings in search of food, especially sweet food to take back to their nest. Although ants are a nuisance they do not carry germs or spread disease.

How we will deal with ants

Our technicians will carry out a treatment to the inside of your property using a licensed professional product. The treatment costs £52 per visit.

Ants are attracted to the insecticide treatment. They will collect the insecticide bait and return it to the nest, to eradicate the source. Ants nest cannot be removed, only destroyed.
