Ant treatment & control, Wigan, Lancashire and Liverpool
There are about 40 species of ant found in the North-West of England, with some being introduced by the increase in global travel and trade.
Some of the more exotic ant species, such as the pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis) being incapable of living outdoors, but breeding successfully in heated premises where they can cause serious problems such as spreading of diseases and contaminating food stores.
Applications containing bendiocarb or baits with a growth inhibitor / disruptor (i.e. imidacloprid, spinosad, s-methoprene) to eradicate the breeding population in 7-14 days is usually the most appropriate method of control for black garden ants. Sometimes a cavity wall injection with a long lasting residual insecticide is required if this is the origin of reoccurring ant infestations.
