TDC Pest Control Facts & Information
We have included some information on just some of the pests our expert controllers treat, and how to spot the signs of an infestation in your home or commercial property.
There are two specific species of ants that are subject to pest control in the UK, these include:
Garden Ants also known as the common black ant, are black or red in colour and measure at approximately 7mm in length. These ants can be found all over Europe and in some parts of North America and Asia.
Pharaoh Ants are distinctively red in colour and much smaller in size than garden ants, averaging at around 3.5mm in length. Pharaoh ants live in colonies that can vary in size, although colonies are made up of several queens, in which the worker ants bring food back to the nest to feed the queen and larvae.
How can I tell if I have an ant problem?
Depending on the severity of the ant infestation, indications can include the sheer amount you will see along surfaces in your home or garden, as well as possibly discovering an ants nest. Signs of a garden ants nest can be spotting mounds of earth, this will be the entrance of the ants nest.
What do ants eat?
Ants generally are attracted to foods that are high in sugar and greases. They will eat almost anything apart from solid foods, as all foods must be liquids. Ants also need a lot of water in order to survive, especially during a drought.

We understand that the thought of rats or mice living in your kitchen for example, can be unbearable. There are a few ways to tell if you have mice or rats lurking in your home, including:
What types of rats are there?
There are commonly three different types of rats:
Norway Rats – These rats can also be named brown or sewer rats, and can be identified by their grey-brown bodies. Norway rats have small ears and eyes and their tales are shorter than their body length. These rats are a lot larger than other rat species; they burrow in gardens and fields, beneath rubbish or building foundations. Shredded paper and cloth is used to line their nests as they prefer fibrous materials.
Roof Rats – Also referred to as black rats, these rats are superb climbers that tend to live above ground. Wild roof rats inhabit shrubs and trees, yet in a domestic environment will seek secure, elevated places such as an attic or cabinet. Roof rats can enter homes through trees that are close to windows and prefer warmer climates.
Woodrats – These types of rodent are known to be fond of shiny objects, and are often referred to as ’packrats.’ Woodrats gnaw on trees, furniture, paper and even mattress bedding. Because of this, they are known to cause serious problems for homeowners and farmers.
