April has seen PGM & Son Pest Control out and about dealing with lots of ant problems.
Climate change is a key factor in the rise in ants. And, with lots of rain recently and the hot sunny period already upon us and set to continue along with rain spells in between, we’re expecting the number of call-outs to continue to rise.
And although they don’t carry transmittable diseases like other pests, they can still be a nuisance and they can, and do, bite.
As with lots of other pests, prevention is often better than cure and simple steps like keeping food items in sealed containers, wiping down sides properly and not leaving pest food out can help enormously.
If you do find you have a problem, it’s best to contact a pest controller as soon as possible because the problem can be treated much quicker and easier if you don’t waste time.
