Unwanted ten-ANTS in your home or business?
The main type of ant that you are likely to encounter in Reading, Berkshire is the common black ant. They can be seen all year round but are most likely to be found in the warmer months of the year; they will be on the look out for food and resources for their nests and are the definition of the word pest.
Another type of ant commonly found to infest buildings is the pharaoh ant, these are harder to treat and eliminate as the colony can have multiple breeding Queens and, if disturbed or stressed, will sometimes separate to form smaller nests elsewhere in your premises. As a result these colonies can take longer to eradicate and may require more than one visit.
There are 3 key types of treatment for ants, all of which we are able to offer: - An insecticide spray applied to the affected area - Insecticide powder, this is generally used if the nest site is found - Insecticide gel, this treatment is the most effective in tackling pharaoh ants.
At Abbey Pest Control we will visit your home or business and carry out an assessment to determine what type of ants you have and will treat the infestation accordingly. We are based in Reading and can offer you a same-day callout service with no additional charges at weekends.
