About Ants:

Get Rid of AntsBlack Ants and Red Ants tend to be nuisance pest. Some will bite but they’re the best hunter-gatherers around. They’re highly organised and will build extensive nests in your lawn or under your floor. If you need to get rid of ants, then you need look no further. Getting rid of ants is what we do.

What type are they?

Order Hymenoptera is the family that ants belong to. There are around 12,000 worldwide but only about 50 species in the UK.  If you like you can send us a photo and we’ll help you figure it out. There are actually very few ant species that will give you a pest control problem. The main problem for the home is how to get rid of Black Ants in the Spring. There are various sub-tropical species than can infest homes and business but you can find out about them here.

How did they get in?

A number of ways. They may just have flown in through an open door or window and been hibernating for a while. They normally hibernate in the garden or can be under the building and then start building nests in the Spring .

Will they just go away?

Again, it depends on the species. The black and red ants will go away eventually. The subtropical species probably will not go away unless their food sources run out.  Lets identify them and then we can give you treatment options.

What can be done?

With all ant control, identification is paramount. There are various ways to remove them from your home. Some methods are very quick and others might take a little longer. Lets talk and together we’ll find what works best for you. Unfortunately, despite testing all products and methods available today, there is very little that can be done for red ants in lawns or yellow meadow ants.

How long will it take Acclaim Environmental to complete the Treatment?

Once we know what type they are, we can give you a set product to get rid of ants. Most of the time it can be just one visit .

Do I have to be out of the building during an ant pest control treatment?

No. We’ll give you all the guidance and health and safety stuff you need to keep your family, staff and customers safe during ant control.

Can you make sure they never come back again?

A lot can be done to control ants early (normally in the Spring) before you’re inundated with them. Generally they can be cleared in just one visit. However, the truth is that it is not always possible to get rid of them forever. There is always a chance that they return the following year. Some of our customers are happy to have a yearly ant treatment, which keeps their property pest free all year around. Others only do it when they feel inundated. Whatever your problem is, we’ll give you real options to eradicate ants and get your property or business cleared.
