Ant Control Dublin
Unlike rats, mice or other large rodents, ants are often overlooked. Spotting an ant crawling across a counter is often not the end of the world for property owners, but where there is one pest, there are likely hundreds hiding out nearby. Despite their small size, these insects can contaminate surfaces and food, as well as causing physical damage to properties. Professional ant control services can treat insects in the open and behind the scenes.
The first step to treating an ant problem is to identify which species of ants you are dealing with. Each type of insect requires its own unique treatment method, designed specifically to treat nests, high traffic areas and create an unwelcome environment for pests.
Understanding Your Pest Problem: What to Know About Ants
It is common enough to encounter black garden ants while out on a picnic but seeing them indoors is a sign of bad things to come. When dealing with small pests, even the slightest opening can result in a trail of uninvited guests marching in. Insects invade residential and commercial properties in search of comfort. In the same way that humans enjoy the warmth, safety and food sources of a home, so do pests.
Ants will often build nests outdoors near dead or rotting wood. Anything from an old fence to a rotting tree stump can house thousands of ants. As nests become overpopulated, flying ants will take flight in search of a new home. Once the new location is discovered, worker ants begin to build up these satellite nests. The trouble comes when these nests are made behind the walls or under flooring in and around your property.
In the past, traditional ant removal methods have resulted in damage throughout properties, such as excessive drill marks in walls or flooring, all in search of an ant nest. Pest control has come a long way since then, and the technicians at Clear Pest Control are at the forefront of the industry. Across Dublin, ant control must be catered to the unique needs and characteristics of your property and no one understands that better than a locally owned and operated pest control company.
