Few things cause as much headache as the seemingly never-ending spawn of ants in your house. Off-the-shelf products can help with ant removal to some degree, but getting to the source of the problem can prove challenging. This is especially true for an ant infestation in the kitchen, as ants can use the space behind the appliances to freely roam about in search of food.
There are two main types of ants that pose a problem in the West Midlands:
- Black garden ant,
- Pharaoh ant.
The first is a common ant, black in appearance, that grows to approximately 5mm in size. Harmless as individuals, these ants become a problem when they build a nest in your home and spread out further into the house, in search of more food. Their colonies can reach up to 40,000 members. If the ant infestation is allowed to grow to this level, a far more severe rat removal solution will be required to carry out a full extermination.
The second is a much smaller ant, about 2mm in size, dark yellow in colour.
These ants also have smaller nests than their counterparts and mostly appear in buildings with central heating, but their colonies can quickly grow by building new nests and can rapidly infest an entire building.
The ant removal for this breed is more complex and time-consuming and having it done by professionals is the only way to fully dispose of them.
