If you've found a few ants sneaking into your home, there are steps you can take yourself to help elevate the problem:
If you are still having trouble with ants in the house, then you can call on the experts. Our external Ant Bait Station uses the ants roaming instinct to it's advantage, providing an insecticide bait which they eat and take back to the nest - effectively eliminating the colony. The tamper resistant lid allows it to be used safely in areas used by children and pets.
FACT: Some birds, like Jays, spread their wings on an ant’s nest to get ants in their feathers. It is thought that this is because the ants squirt formic acid that gets rid of bird parasites.
There are thousands of ant species worldwide, but in the cooler UK climate the Garden or Black Ant is the most resilient species to live outdoors in nutrient-rich, moist environments. Tropical ant species such as Roger's, Ghost and Pharaoh's Ants only survive with the warmth provided inside heated buildings in the UK.
