Steps to Take to Eliminate an Ant Infestation

 

Once you’ve identified an ant infestation, the next step is to take action. Begin by removing any food sources that can attract ants. This includes keeping food sealed, disposing of garbage regularly, and wiping down countertops and tables. You can also set out ant traps or baits to lure ants away from their nesting area.

 

 

Prevention Techniques to Avoid Future Infestations

 

Preventing an ant infestation is just as important as eliminating one. To do so, you should seal up any cracks or crevices around your home or office that ants can use to gain entry. Additionally, you should keep food sealed and dispose of garbage regularly to avoid attracting ants.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Top-notched pest control service!! Went above and beyond to eradicate the rats from our property. Gabriel even offered to further investigate the infestation issues for our neighbours. We found him to be extremely professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend Gabriel to anyone in need of pest control.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
