Ant Treament & Control Services for Homes & Businesses in Reading

Ants

Are Ants causing problems in your kitchen? Our professional pest control technicians can help.

We deal with three species of ants on a regular basis. Our treatment price and type of treatment will depend on the species of ant.

The commonest species of ant we are all familiar with is the black garden ant (Lasius niger). Our treatment price for black garden ants inside a domestic property is £96 including VAT per visit.

Treatments for other ants: brown ants, Pharaoh ants or Ghost ants will be subject to quotation. Please contact us if you require help with any of these species of ant. Alternatively, if you are unsure which species of ant it is, try to catch an ant on a piece of tape and send it to us together with your contact details for identification.

Prevention and Control

  • Ensure all food waste and spillages are cleaned up immediately
  • Keep foods in sealed containers, especially sweet foods like sugar
  • Avoid leaving pet food out for long periods of time
  • Ensure that rubbish bins are emptied regularly
  • Cracks and crevices and other faults in the building structure should be sealed with mortar/cement or mastic, as appropriate to prevent ingress by ants.

Start treatments when the first signs of activity are observed, normally in late spring

Facts about black garden ants

Nuisance

Black garden ants are a nuisance pest, but not a risk to human health.

When to treat

Start treatment when the first signs of activity are observed, normally in late spring

Flying Ants

During the summer, usually hot humid days, winged flying ants, which are the reproductive males and females, have nuptial swarming flights. Mating takes place in the air and the female then seeks out a nest site where she stays for the winter, laying eggs the following spring in order to start up a new colony. This is a natural occurrence and flying activity should be over within 48 hours. We are unable to carry out treatments whilst ants are flying.

Food

Ants feed on a wide range of foods but are particularly attracted to sweet substances such as sugar or honey and will often invade homes, kitchens and cupboards etc. in search of such food

Trails

When a foraging worker ant successfully locates a food source, it is able to communicate this information to its co-workers which can lead to substantial numbers of worker ants invading and contaminating human foods.

Nest

Ants nest outside in grass, walls, under paving, and will happily enter buildings in search of food.

Control

Control measures are only required when ants are invading or living inside properties.
