How the ant removal service works

Survey

On the day of your service appointment, we’ll send you a fully equipped ant exterminator. They will inspect your property, look for entry points, and determine the seriousness of the infestation. Once done, the specialist will choose the best ant control treatment.

Treatment

The ant exterminator will set special gel baits in strategic areas, mainly around entry points and close to the ants’ nests. This type of treatment is extremely effective and will take care of the infestation once and for all.

Observation

Upon additional request, your ant removal specialist can visit your property again in a few weeks to see if the ant infestation is gone. If there are still signs of the insects, further measures will be taken.

Proofing

Your ant pest control expert will offer you some useful advice that will prevent future ant infestations. Also, they’ll write down a report, describing what has been done in your property during the pest control service.

Professional ant control by RSPH-certified technicians

Pest expert spraying for ants
Although ants are not your typical pest, as they are considered beneficial insects to our ecosystem, the little hard workers can infest our homes and cause problems, especially in the kitchen. At first, you may notice just a few of them scouting around and checking for available food sources. But sooner or later, you can expect the entire colony to join them.

The ants that you'll see in your home are not health-hazardous, but some species do bite if disturbed. That being said, these tiny insects can cause some serious damage to your property. For example, if a family of carpenter ants decides to move in with you, you can expect some serious structural damage to your home that can cost you a significant amount of time and money to fix. Ants can also cause issues with the wiring - believe it or not, the crawling insects can actually chew through the plastic covering of a cable and create a potential fire hazard. And we are not quite done yet - if an ant colony settles behind the walls of your home, the moisture from their new nest can affect your household appliances. So, next time your oven starts acting weird, maybe you have an ant problem on your hands.

These are just some of the many reasons why you should opt for a professional solution if you start seeing tiny, black dots walking around your property.

What to do before and after the ant removal service

What to do before and after the ant removal service

Before your pest control technician arrives, you’ll need to prepare yourself and your property for the treatment. Some of the things that you’ll have to do before the ant removal service are the following:

  • Make sure to remove all of the food from your kitchen cupboards;
  • Thoroughly vacuum your carpeted areas before the ant exterminator arrives.

What to do after the ant control service has been completed:

  • Leave the treated areas alone for at least a couple of hours;
  • Once enough time has passed from the ant removal session, open your windows for about 10 minutes;
  • Avoid hoovering or cleaning your property for at least 4 days after the ant eradication service.

If you have any further questions about your ant control service, you can ask the exterminator on-site or give our customer support team a call - pick the option that is most convenient for you.

Ant Control FAQ

Q: Why are there so many ants in my house all of a sudden?

A: Ants usually come indoors in search of food or a place to nest. Even the smallest amount, such as pet food crumbs, can attract ants. As soon as they discover food sources, ants form long trails. As they travel, ants leave behind a pheromone trail that is a scent signature for other ants. So, they will keep coming until the trail is broken.

Q: How long does it take to get rid of an ant infestation?

A: In the case of an ant infestation, pest exterminators may have to visit more than once to eradicate the colony. An improvement is likely to occur quickly, but complete elimination may take several weeks. We set up a preventative maintenance schedule so that you can rest assured that your home is ant-free.

Q: How much does it cost to get rid of ants?

A: Pest control for ants in residential properties usually costs around £160. Ant exterminators will strategically place gel baits near nests and entry points. The treatment is highly effective and will eliminate the infestation for good. Depending on the number of treatments you require, this cost estimate will vary.

Q: How to get rid of ants?

A: As soon as you spot any ants, make a 50% vinegar and 50% water solution, and pour it all over the area. Vinegar leaves a lingering smell that acts as a natural ant repellant, killing current and future ants. Getting rid of ants requires removing any potential food sources and blocking possible entry points.

Q: How do I find the ants nest?

A: The best way to locate ants' nests is to look for areas with water damage. Plumbing or roof leaks usually attract ants to damp areas such as framing or soft and spongy flooring. Attics, bathrooms and exterior walls are all common places for ant nests.

Q: Can ants damage my home?

A: Carpenter ants are just one type of ant that enjoys feasting on damp and rotten wood. By creating their nests, they can cause structural damage to your property. They are making tunnels through wood materials like termites.
