From late March until June the most common pest I'm asked to deal with is garden ants. I don't deal with garden ants in the garden as this is where they belong, they are technically not a pest until they enter your home.
The ant colony sends out scouts at the start of the season to look for food. If they happen to come across even the smallest amount of a suitable food source inside your home then they will continue to enter until mid summer. A simple and very safe treatment with a professional ant bait will clear the problem colony in less than a week.
The other ant colonies in the garden of which there will be dozens can continue to do their work unharmed. As I have mentioned in previous posts about ants, no amount of ant powder will resolve the problem. Ant powder only works as a barrier, the colony will continue to grow and eventually the ants will find another route in.
My price for a garden ant treatment for the 2022 season is £80, the same as 2021. However this may have to increase next year.
