HARRIER pest control deal with ant infestations in homes throughout the North West.
Only people who have suffered the trauma of a summer flying ant infestation inside their homes know the true horror of an ant infestation.
Black or Garden ants are commonly found throughout the UK, and although they nest outdoors, they are often found inside houses, and when they emerge in their mating phase as winged or ‘flying’ ants the effect can be truly terrible, worthy of any horror film.
Although there are many any species in the UK the one which mainly concerns us a pest is the common garden or black ant (Lasius niger).
There are other species which cause problems as pests but these are mainly tropical ants which rarely survive in private dwellings and are usually found in places where a high ambient temperature is found such as hospitals, bakeries, boiler-houses etc. Examples of these ants are the pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis), so named out of a belief that it may have been one of the insect plagues of Ancient Egypt.
In addition we have Roger’s Ant, (Hypoponera punctatissima) and Argentine Ant (Linepithima humile) and several others , but the main pest species which normally causes problems in the area covered by HARRIER pest control is the common or garden ant
In nature they are social creatures, and live in colonies containing workers (infertile females), males, queens and grubs (larvae). Ants mate on the wing so the ‘flying ants’ which are often mistaken for flies are either males or immature queens.
Unfortunately, when ants choose to nest under the floors of houses, they can become a major and distressing pest especially when in the mating phase when many thousands of flying ants can be discharged from the nest into your home etc.
Winged ants can emerge from the nest at any time of year but by far and away the most usual time is mid summer. Typically after two or three days of hot, dry weather all the nests in any area will synchronise their release in order that the queens may mate with males from other nests.
Getting rid of an ant infestation can be extremely difficult as it is necessary to destroy the queen inside the nest which otherwise can continue to lay eggs for many years, up to twenty in fact.
Treating an ant infestation with amateur use powders from the hardware store is doomed to failure.
The gels and baits cannot possibly work on flying ants as they do not return to the nest.
In recent years the range of products and techniques available to pest controllers have become much more successful than the old fashioned sprays. We have products which are incredibly successful in wiping out the nest and we can even protect your property against re-entry.
