How do I know if I have a garden ant problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of an ant infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to garden ants will help you determine if it is in fact garden ants you are dealing with.

The black garden ant is a formicine ant found all over Europe and in some parts of North America and Asia. It is the most common ant to be found in the UK, it is deemed to be a pest once it migrates inside or starts to cause damage to mortar or the stability of paving.

The nest is made up of  a single queen and a colony of  around 4,000–6,000 workers (sterile females). 

Black garden ants often explore their surroundings quite extensively during the early summer months in an effort to increase the food supply to their queen and her young.

Mating flights will usually occur on hot and humid days around July and August; these nuptial flights can contain thousands of winged males and females. It is possible that these flights can occur on the same day across the whole nation if weather conditions are suitable. This behaviour often prompts a call to our company but there must be a nest present for a successful treatment.

Occasionally central heating or warmth in a conservatThe ory or a green house may kick start this mating during other months of the year, sometimes in the home. 

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a thorough survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – Proofing recommendations will always be given by our technicians when identified. 
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing to pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what it says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. We use commercial-grade insecticides safely and in accordance with the label to ensure full control. 
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process, our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions to you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
