Ants nests can be daunting; you never know how many there are until you pull back the wall…
Although ants usually nest outside in our gardens and look like this. They are also found in our houses which can cause issues in terms of health and safety.
Ants can carry diseases into your home and are unsightly when in your home and around your food. DIY insecticides don’t always work, so we suggest calling a professional pest control company like us to deal with an infestation. We are BPCA approved.
Short term fix for ants:
Pouring a kettle of boiling water over the nest site is a first-aid measure as it kills what ants are in the nest at the time, however, it does not stop ants from coming back to the nest.
Some products cause the workers to destroy their own nests, for example, sugar-based liquid bait. The workers are attracted to the bait and carry the insecticide back to the larvae and queen; therefore killing the queen. This can be effective, but like hot water, does not prevent ants from returning.
