Ant Treatments in Kent
Quick guide to our ant treatment service
Permanently dealing with garden ants is usually unsuccessful by following a DIY approach and can even cause problems when toxic chemicals are used. We cover homes throughout Kent and prices are from £45. Contact us free today on 0800 013 0181.
Identifying A Problem
Garden ants are usually 3-4mm long of a brown/black colour. Garden ants usually nest outdoors, in lawns, flower beds, beneath paving and at the base of walls.
Worker ants usually go into houses for food and they like food that is sweet and sugary. When one ant finds food, there will soon be others and a trail of worker ants taking the food back to the nest. Garden ants are harmless and are not a public health pest, therefore not a health hazard.
Ants are often treated by using a DIY approach. This however is usually ineffective and often results in toxic chemicals being present in areas they should not be.
Our Assessment, Treatment and Guarantee
What can you do?
- Try to ensure that sweet sugary foods are not available to the foraging workers.
- Cover foods and clean spillages as they occur to help avoid an infestation.
- Avoid excessively treating areas with a DIY approach.
What we do
Treatment will need to be carried out on areas such as door frames, airbricks, waste pipes and nesting areas. Treatment can be carried out by Arrowguard using a variety of techniques. Gel is typically applied to areas, encouraging garden ants to feed and take the gel back to the nest. The gel is then ingested by the queen ant and the nest is destroyed. Alternatively, residual insecticide sprays or dusts can be used. Our qualified technician will assess the safest and most effective solution to your infestation, considering in particular the health of pets and children.
On every treatment to destroy these pests we provide our clients with the relevant health and safety information. Arrowguard staff are fully trained, registered and licensed to use all chemicals and materials.
Arrowguard understand the habits of pest species and use that knowledge to choose the proper control methods and materials and to develop an effective control programme. We are clear in the knowledge that your time is precious and we have total respect for:
- Your home
- Your family
- Your pets
- Your time
At all times we operate the highest levels of safety when dealing with people and pets.
Cost For Treatment
While every ant job is different, typical costs of treating an area within a property is usually from £45 + VAT. Contact us free today on 0800 013 0181 for us to advise you.
Testimonials From Our Customers
I lived in a small cottage on the outskirts of Maidstone and every year we seem to get the same problem with garden ants. Arrowguard know who we are when we call and we always have the same technician visit us who knows our problem. We feel the service is very personal and reassuring.
Sarah Tanner – Mayview Cottage – Grafty Green
Ants were a nuisance in my conservatory so I contacted Arrowguard who had previously treated my wasp nests in the Summer. I was surprised to see that treatment had been executed using a gel application. The system to eradicate ants was successful and Arrowguard were kind enough to inform me on procedures I could take to avoid problems in the future.
