Professional ant control in London by RSPH-certified technicians
Although ants are not your typical pest, as they are considered beneficial insects to our ecosystem, the little hard workers can infest our homes and cause problems, especially in the kitchen. At first, you may notice just a few of them scouting around and checking for available food sources. But sooner or later, you can expect the entire colony to join them.
The ants that you'll see in your home are not health-hazardous, but some species do bite if disturbed. That being said, these tiny insects can cause some serious damage to your property. For example, if a family of carpenter ants decides to move in with you, you can expect some serious structural damage to your home that can cost you a significant amount of time and money to fix. Ants can also cause issues with the wiring - believe it or not, the crawling insects can actually chew through the plastic covering of a cable and create a potential fire hazard. And we are not quite done yet - if an ant colony settles behind the walls of your home, the moisture from their new nest can affect your household appliances. So, next time your oven starts acting weird, maybe you have an ant problem on your hands.
These are just some of the many reasons why you should opt for a professional solution if you start seeing tiny, black dots walking around your property.
