There are many different species of ant in the UK many of which cause us no problems, and those that do are normally attracted by the food, water, harborage and warmth that our homes, offices and factories have to offer.
The four main problem species (although there are more) are the Black Garden Ant, the Ghost Ant, The Pharaoh Ant and the Argentine Ant. In terms of food consumption ants fall into two main categories sweet or protein loving.
The treatment of ants will very much depend upon the environment the ants are living in, and consideration needs to be given to factors such as Children, Pets, or risk of contamination to food or the environment.
Treatment will usually be applied in the form of Gel baits, Sprays or Dust’s depending on the species, and can take anything from 2-10 days to become effective.
