Ant Control & Eradication

Ants are social creatures and they love the same food we do. They come into our homes and workplaces to find things they can eat, particularly things that are sweet or sticky. 

Ants are cosmopolitan creatures and they are most active during the warm months of the year. If you spot an ant or two around your home, then their numbers will surely grow soon. The first ones are called “scouts” and their job is to seek food, then 'report' to the nest which is probably somewhere just outside your home. However, now you can easily prevent the ant invasion with the help of M.E.S Pest Control.

Ants will travel long distances in search for food sources and leftovers; in most cases leaving trails so that other ants can find the same food source with ease. These particular insect infestations can become a real nuisance for businesses (especially those dealing with food) and households alike.

 

Our specialists are well trained in providing professional solutions to Ant infestations for your home or business, using professional and approved methods that are best suited to the scale of the infestation and the surrounding environment.

Ant Species & Description

Below are some of the most common species of ant found in the UK that you may come across;

  • Garden ant - The black garden ant is the familiar and abundant small ant that lives in gardens, but also turns up indoors searching for sugary food.

  • Pharaoh's ant - The pharaoh ant is small, yellow or light brown, almost transparent ant notorious for being a major indoor nuisance pest, especially in hospitals.

  • Carpenter ant - Contrary to popular belief, carpenter ants do not actually eat the wood. Rather, they hollow it out in order to nest inside, which may result in structural damage.​​

 

  • Ghost ant - These are becoming more common in heated buildings. These are a similar size to pharaoh’s ants and is pale coloured with a dark thorax and head. Control must be left to professional operators.

  • Flying ant - Flying ants are the fertile male and female ants whose sole purpose is to leave the nest to reproduce and start a new colony.

The most common species are the garden and black ant, but you can also find infestations of flying ants and even tropical pharaoh ants in the UK. It’s important to determine the exact species of ant before trying to eradicate them, as they have different colony systems. In some cases, if a colony is scattered they can rebuild it very quickly, potentially giving you a larger problem.
