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. These ants rarely cause damage to plants, however they do feed on sugary foods and can be a nuisance when a colony invade your home looking for food.
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. They prefer to nest in hidden and well-protected areas, eating all types of food but especially sweets. As a result, they are considered to be a pest due to their ability to survive sufficiently in indoor areas and contaminate foods by the diseases they carry.
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.
Treating an ant infestation
Both species of ant can be treated in the same way. This is done by a fully qualified pest controller using a powder based insecticide and spreading this across the entrance of the ants nest and surrounding areas. The worker ants then proceed to carry this down through the nest, in turn killing the queen and other nests within the colony. Infestations can become very widespread which is why it is important to ensure that all of the ants are treated correctly to prevent further infestation.
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.
Bees & Wasps
There are three different species of bees that may cause customers to contact us:
How can I tell if I have a problem with bees or wasps?
There are a few ways to tell if you have bees or wasps lurking in your home, from checking your attic or loft for a wasps nest, to the dark and dry corners of your property, as wasps prefer to build their nests here, with bees able to build their nests anywhere. Alternatively, if you notice structural damage to your property such as holes in the walls and damaged mortar between bricks, it is likely that you are suffering from a masonry bee infestation. These bees drill into the brick work to create cavities in order to build their nests.
