Signs of an Ant Infestation and Preventative Measures
Please see our top tips to help prevent getting ant problems.
1 – Sticky and sugary food sources will attract ants. Empty food and drink containers should be thoroughly washed out before placing them into your recycling bins to help prevent an infestation of ants.
2 – If you live in an area where food waste in recycled, please ensure your kitchen food caddy is always clean externally and the lid is firmly closed.
3. Ants are social insects and belong to the same family as Bees and wasps – Hymenoptera family. These insects will communicate via pheromones, these pheromones act as signposts to where food sources can be located. When a worker ant finds a foods source this will be quickly communicated via pheromones to the nest. These nests can contain thousands of Ants and very quickly an infestation can develop. To help prevent this ensure all worktops and floors are cleared of food and drink residue.
