Ants

Ants have a variety of nesting habits, some like to build their nests in soil, others behind moldings, baseboards and counter tops; they feed on different types of food, including starches, meats, sweets and fats.

The best way to eliminate an infestation is to locate the nest and destroy it.

“Ants are primarily a nuisance and cause little damage and aren’t generally associated with spreading disease.”

If a problem is identified, upon your agreement; we will conduct the following:

Garden and Black Ants are treated:

Garden/Black Ants:
 

A water based spray treatment using an insecticide called Ficam W is used

 

This is applied to the areas where the infestation is, which could be cracks and crevices and along the edge of floor junctions

 

It is a one off treatment

 

For precautionary purposes we recommend a 1hour exclusion period, whereby no one can enter the vicinity of the treatment either during or up to 1hour after completion

 

However, this can only be done in an area where a fish pond is not nearby, as the insecticide could be harmful to aquatic life

 

Pharaoh Ants

Pharaoh Ants are usually smaller than garden ants, lighter in colour and are mostly found indoors. They can be a risk to public health.

Pharaoh Ants are generally found in bathrooms, kitchens, work surfaces, boiler cupboards, kettles and may infest food. Pharaoh ants have been known to transmit disease organisms, in hospitals, known as
Staphylococcus.

 Keep food preparation areas clean

 Cover any loose food items and place in sealed containers

 All food rubbish should be put into a bin liner and emptied into an outside bin as soon as possible

Capital Pest control use Maxforce Quantum Gel, which is applied using a “Gel Gun” around the areas of the infestation, which would be cracks and crevices and along the edge of floor junctions.

These treatments are more complex and can take place up to 2-3 months, which can be up to 5-6 treatments to eradicate and the same process applies each time.

There is an exclusion of 1 hour for this treatment.

If you think you may have an infestation call Capital Pest Control immediately, we offer a free, no obligation site survey to identify any current pest problems or areas of risk.
