At the SafeGroup we are experts in removing your ant problem, delivering pest control to prevent further ant infestation. Swift, efficient eradication of ant problems, whatever the variant, ensures your premises are safe from potential health risks.
With qualified technicians and a 24/7 service, we can attend your site in London to deal with an ant infestation – using a bait system or insecticide to swiftly deal with a colony of ants.
Get in touch today to arrange a visit or to discuss your specific ant problem.
An ant infestation inside or outside of your property can be distressing, not only because of the discomfort and stress they cause, but because they bring with them the risk of disease being carried into your home or commercial premises.
Common Black Ant – Native to the UK, these ants are usually found nearby to homes and other buildings. Attracted to food and sweet items, they often make a nuisance of themselves whilst potentially carrying disease in high risk areas such as kitchens.
Pharaoh Ant – A tropical ant, the pharaoh variant likes to take refuge in heated areas, particularly indoors. They pose a problem for hospitals and larger buildings, carrying disease with them.
Ghost Ant – Originating from the USA, ghost ants are now increasing in numbers in the UK. As with the pharaoh ant, they prefer warmer habitats, driving them into homes and businesses. Kitchens and bathrooms are among their favoured places, potentially carrying disease with them.
Other varieties of ant include wood ants and flying ants, both of which have been known to bite on rare occasions.
We offer our ant control services across London and the surrounding areas. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
Ants are attracted to the sweet and sticky substances we keep in our kitchens. You should take measures to ensure your food containers are adequately sealed, such as checking for cracks or gaps where they can enter. Ants will also be drawn towards any spills on a table surface so it is important that you clean up these quickly too- pay special attention to out of the way areas like under cookers or white goods appliances which might attract ants more easily than other surfaces because their feet may get caught by wire coils etc.
SafeGroup is the most reliable company for ant control services in London. We utilize cutting-edge chemicals and organic solutions to get results quickly with our effective treatment methods.
