Garden / Black ants are the most common ant found in the UK they are relatively simple to control. The first step is housekeeping, clear any spilled foodstuffs from the affected area. Our ant control kits contain several bait stations the number depends on which kit size you select. Step one as with any pest control product is to read the product label, then as per the label place the bait stations in the area where the ants have been noted make sure to break off the plastic tags first. Proofing against ants is difficult but the application of a barrier spray can help prevent them gaining access to the building in the first instance. Do not use the spray directly on the ants the idea is that the ants will find the bait stations and take the bait back to the nest meaning the whole colony is controlled rather than just the foraging workers.
Do not use our kits or any other DIY product on tropical ant species such as pharaoh ants these generally require the help of a pest control specialist.
Pestek also provide a professional ant treatment service. If you are in an area we do not cover we should be able to recommend a local professional.
