Professional Horwich Ant Infestation Removal
Ants are resourceful, omnivorous insects that will adapt to most environments and thrive in the most difficult conditions. There are thousands of species of ant worldwide, but our main concern in the UK would be with the black ant and the red ant. Most of the time, an ant infestation will go unnoticed, but if they occur close to or within our homes, a Horwich ant infestation removal treatment may be called upon.
In the garden, ants can create unsightly mounds on the lawn. They will have a distinctive hole in the middle and a pile of earth excavated from the tunnels below. Aphid-infected plants will attract ants as they like to feed on the honeydew excreted by the aphids. Any other sources of sugary sap will also be sought out by the ants. Ants will always find food sources in a UK garden, and ant control treatment is needed to remove them.
Ant infestation in the house comes with the obvious visual problem of having ants foraging everywhere. Removing food sources is difficult as ants will derive sustenance from the smallest scraps. A domestic ant infestation also carries sanitary hazards. The ants will walk across contaminated substances and onto your food. Horwich ant infestation removal in such a case is likely to be difficult and best left to the professionals at Young’s pest control. The main part of the nest will be well hidden. Just removing part of the colony will not remove the problem. Even if you manage to kill the queen, one of the workers will spontaneously develop into a replacement.
A Flying ant infestation occurs when the colony is reaching out to sprout new colonies. The new, potential queens will leave the nest in search of a new home. Any suitable spot in or under your house will be considered. Ant infestation in the house occurs when one of the flying ants stumbles upon a vent or conduit into your cavities or under your floorboards. The flying ant infestation will exploit any food sources available, and take advantage of the dry, sheltered nooks of a human home.
Commercial infestations can occur and grow, unnoticed by the workers and staff. People have a less sentimental attachment to their workplaces and will leave the problem to escalate. The size and diversity of different premises allow for a multitude of different habitats for ants to exploit.
