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.

Exceptional service! Gerry is very professional and friendly. After I contacted him for the first time he came to our house the same day, within a few hours to get rid of a mouse issue. Every occasion he came he always gave me an ETA and was very timely. He was really thorough and set traps and bait to ensure he covered all bases after inspecting our house.He went above and beyond, gave invaluable advise as to how to block any potential entry points. Within 3.5 hours he worked his magic and his traps caught the mouse. He'd asked me to contact him if anything was caught and as promised, true to his word came the next day to dispose of it. Gerry did not charge me anything for this follow-up visit. We continued to monitor the traps and after a week it was safe to say there was only just the one that got in! He left some monitoring bait just in case to keep our mind at ease and was willing to leave the traps for a further week if we wanted.He is the best in the field and has a lot of patience and dedication. While I hope we do not need any further pest control assistance, I would definitely call on him again should we do so. I cannot recommend him highly enough – nothing short of excellent if there were more stars would add them!

Gerry is very professional and responsible. After I contacted him for the first time in August, he came to my house the next day to get rid of the wasps. He examined the situation carefully and applied spray to extinguish the wasp nest. He promised to take care of the issue until the end of this year. A few days ago, I noticed some wasps appearing around my house again. When I reported this to Gerry, he promptly came to my house the next day to assess the situation. He examined it carefully and explained in detail that the wasps might be from the neighboring house and passing by mine. True to his word, Gerry did not charge me anything for this follow-up visit. I truly appreciate his dedication, and I'm happy to provide positive feedback here. I am confident that I will contact Gerry again if I encounter any future wasp problems.

Today we thought we had a huge infestation of wasps, Gerry attended extremely quickly and was friendly and professional. He went to the garden to investigate and realised they were in fact honey bees. He was very knowledgeable and let us know about the bees behaviour reassuring us we need not worry as they would not be sticking around. Thank you so much would definitely call Gerry again in the future and recommend to others.

Gerry reassured me on the phone and swiftly came out to deal with my wasp problem. As promised he got rid of the nest quickly, smoothly and with no fuss at all. It all came with a guarantee we haven’t had to use and I recommend him highly. Excellent, professional service - and with a big smile!
