Ants Control Bournemouth

The Black Garden Ant is the commonest species that invades the home. The colour is actually very dark brown. All ants have the main divisions of the body (head, thorax, abdomen) distinctly separated by very narrow waists and have a sharp elbow joint in their antennae. A very social and highly organised insect they are. You will find that the worker ants are the foraging visitors that invade buildings in search of food. Sweet foodstuffs are the main attractions for them, which they collect and carry back to the nest. These are from 3 to 5mm in length.
While DIY products can deal with smaller ant problems or with garden ants, a professional pest control service will be required for larger or multiple infestations of ants and particularly if they are Pharaoh’s Ants.

The species of the Pharaoh’s Ant is thought to be native to Africa although it is commonly found in America. Unfortunately, these are located and mainly invade commercial food handling establishments such as hotels, grocery stores and hospitals. Using a highway system they like to use the cables and wires in the wall cavities and floorboards. Salmonella and Streptococcus are just a couple of pathogens can be spread through the Pharaoh ants.
