Ant nests are located in warm dry soil often close to buildings. When they enter a home they are searching for food and often leave with no trace, meaning that our food can be contaminated by the insects.
Ants are very communal insects and will often be in groups. They can contaminate the surfaces they touch and are known to invade hospitals.
There are not many signs, other than spotting live insects and small nests of dirt and earth.
For ant infestations, we offer regular inspections after treatment to keep prevention of future infestation at a maximum.
