The Need For Ant Control

Pharaoh ants, black ants, garden ants, house ants, and red ants live in colonies with nests in concealed places, often close to a water and food source. They prefer to feed from foods with high protein content, particularly blood, and can actively feed from wounds and soiled dressings.

Unlike some other ant species, the queen may be replaced by other queens resulting in colonies which are able to split.They commonly use electrical and telephone wires as a highway system to travel through walls and between floors.

The ants are common problems in commercial food handling places such as hotels, grocery stores, hospitals and in apartment complexes.

Pathogens may be picked up as the ants forage – their very small size and their strong jaws mean that they can get inside many products. Thus they can either damage the goods or become a foreign body contaminant. In areas such as hospitals, they can move from dirty, unsavoury areas to clean (possibly even sterile) areas very easily.

They are particularly attracted to sweet things such as jam and sugar, but any food scraps lying around will do. As soon as one ant finds a food source, it communicates its discovery to other ants nearby.

Treating Ant Infestations and Nests

We offer a rapid same day response to safely and quickly deal with the treatment or removal of ants and ant nests across Hillingdon, South Bucks, the Three Rivers district and the surrounding areas.

Black Garden Ants

Black garden ants have a single queen and hundreds of thousands of workers. These ants are normally found in gardens; in the ground and under rocks or flagstones and can often penetrate under the building. They frequently build nests in the foundation layer and from there penetrate into the house itself through cracks and crevasses.

The pharaoh ant is a major pest in hospitals and office blocks; it can make nests between sheets of paper.

Some ant species are considered pests, and because of the adaptive nature of ant colonies, eliminating the entire ant colony is nearly impossible. Pest management is therefore a matter of controlling local ant populations, instead of eliminating an entire ant colony, and most attempts at ant control are temporary solutions.

Ant colony populations are controlled using insecticide baits, either in granule or liquid formulations. Bait is gathered by the ants as food and brought back to the ants nest where the poison is inadvertently spread to other colony members. Bait may be broadcast over a large area to control species like the red fire ant that occupy large areas.

Ant infestations are not easy to control and different strategies should be used depending on ant nest location and the ant food preference points.

We contacted Gerry The Wasp Man because we thought we had a wasps nest in our tree. Gerry was able to visit the same day which was a boon, otherwise we would've had to wait for 5 days for a visit from the local council. In the end, it turned out it we had honeybees. (Wasps don’t swarm). Instead of charging us for a call out fee, Gerry contacted a local beekeeper to come and take away the bees, which he was able to do safely within the hour. He also gifted us a delicious pot of honey. It was a wonderful outcome for us all- especially for the honeybees. Gerry was kind and generous with his time. I highly recommend him. Gerry The Wasp Man is your man, even if he isn’t your man!

Gerry was able to pop round a few hours after I called. He was on time, very professional and explained everything he was doing. Time will ultimately tell if the treatment he has administered works and I'll update the review as necessary but so far so good and would recommend. Update: its been over a month and no sign of any pests. Gerry rang to follow up and thankfully no more treatments are needed

Gerry was busy unfortunately, but very kindly forwarded me a name/number of a rival business to sort out my pigeons in roof eaves issue. The guy came within the hour as he’d had a cancellation and said we were very fortunate the pigeons hadn’t built their nest. He resolved the pigeons issue (with a wire mesh to cover the hole) and was done within the hour. Thanks to Gerry for recommending!! Hard to find good, honest, reliable tradesmen in this day and age.

Gerry came round very quickly and got straight into the loft to eradicate a rather large wasp nest. Very professional and very polite. He took all the mess ie wasp nest with him and assured my girlfriend that the problem was well and truly over after she was fretting and hiding behind closed doors! As Gerry said, I hope to not see you again but if we have any pest issues he is who we will definitely be using and recommending again. Top quality.

A brilliant job done by a friendly and professional guy. We had a wasps next at my mother in laws house in Hounslow. I called Gerry on a Saturday while I was down visiting and he fit me in for a Sunday removal - I was not expecting such a speedy service!

I cannot thank Gerry enough. He is the go to man for any pests. I have had Terrible wasp experiences in the past so for someone to keep you calm during treating them goes a long way.. This time round, there was luckily no nest but Gerry did a full inspection keeping our safety paramount. He fitted a visit in around my busy day too! To top it off, when I asked him how much I owed him, he didn't charge! I insisted many times but Gerry was happy to inspect for free. A genuine tradesman. Good sense of humour too :-).
