Ants are social insects that enjoy warm weather and tasty food, which is why they often become a problem during the Spring and Summer.

While they aren’t as dangerous as other insect pests and don’t carry diseases like ticks or fleas, ants can contaminate food with E. coli, Salmonella and other bacteria.

Some ant species, such as red ants, can bite humans, leading to painful, itchy marks. Also, if ants create nests in your garden, they can leave small piles of dirt that can be unsightly. Soil that’s deposited as ants tunnel underground can disturb plants and other outdoor decorations.

As such, ants can be dangerous and irritating for homes and businesses. Call 07951 157254 to get expert ant control across Wakefield and Leeds.

Ant Species Found In The UK

Black ant on a leaf

In the UK, most ants are black garden ants. The black ant is what most people imagine when they think of an ant: it has a thin, black body and a cinched waist.

During the summer, mature male and female black ants will grow wings and set off to mate.

These are what many people refer to as flying ants, and they can be particularly irritating in hot weather.

Some other types of ants you might find in the UK include pharaoh ants, red ants, and yellow meadow ants.

Whatever ant species you’re dealing with, if they enter your home in search of a food source, they could quickly take over and become a hazard.

Ant infestations can cause harm to business reputations and make your home uncomfortable to spend time in, so you need professional pest control to remove the ants from your property.

When To Get Professional Pest Control To Remove Ants

While a few ants might not seem like a problem, it’s important to remember that these small insects can multiply rapidly.

The queen can lay hundreds of eggs a day, meaning that a small ant colony can quickly expand into a major ant infestation.

Also, ants leave pheromone trails to guide other ants to a reliable food source, so if they find they like your home, you’ll soon find more ants arrive.

The most effective solution for an ant problem is to hire professional pest control experts like Vermicure.

Our team are RSPH Level 2 certified and has access to insecticide products that can’t be purchased by the general public.

We can safely remove the ants and their nest so the infestation is gone for good.

We can also seal up entry points to reduce the chances of more ants coming into your space.

Contact us today to find out more about our ant control services and book an appointment to get rid of ants for good.
