Ant Pest Control in Leeds
The common black garden ant will make a nest almost anywhere. In the summer, they can become a particularly annoying nuisance as they get into food and invade your home.
Ants as a household pest
Ants are particularly attracted to food, drinks and sweet stuffs so given the opportunity will traipse through your cupboards and into your food. If any edible items are left out uncovered, they will be a prime target for any ants in the area. Therefore to avoid attracting ants into your home, it’s good practice to make sure that you don’t leave any food out uncovered and that you wipe up any sticky residues or sweet stuff from the counter tops and tables.
Ant removal requires a professional pest control expert
Commercially available ant treatments may help to get rid of the ants you see appearing in your home but it won’t cure the problem, and you might be shocked at the extent of the infestation if you could see into hidden areas. Ants live in colonies and once they invade a property, they do so en-masse. Other ants are attracted because of a hidden trail left which contains pheromones.
These pheromones are why simply treating the ants that you see won’t cure the problem. In order to get rid of an ant infestation once and for all it’s vital that a treatment occurs within the nest itself. Only by treating the source will you be able to eliminate ants from your home or business.
Species of Ants to look for in Leeds
Although common black garden ants are the most frequently seen type of ant in the UK, you may find other species infesting your home, particularly in your live in a centrally heated block of flats. The tropical Pharaoh ant and more recently, Ghost Ants, may have multiple nests in and around homes which are warm. These are far more difficult to get rid of and require professional help as soon as possible.
