Is having ants in your house bad?

So Is having ants in your house bad? Yes, it is bad because ants are attracted to sweet substances. They could get through the smallest cracks or holes in your kitchen or dining room floorboards and chew into an electrical cord, causing a potential fire hazard that would cost you money. They also can cause other problems like putting small scratches on walls, furniture etc., which means additional costs for repairs. Also they carry diseases with them, which you wouldn’t want your family members to get sick because of ants.

Is having ants in your house bad?

There are many other reasons why having ants in your house is dangerous aside from the previously mentioned ones. For example, ants are usually drawn to moisture so if there’s already water damage somewhere in your house then it shouldn’t be a surprise that you suddenly see ants there.

What are the hazards associated with ants?

There are many other reasons why having ants in your house is dangerous aside from the previously mentioned ones. For example, ants are usually drawn to moisture so if there’s already water damage somewhere in your house then it shouldn’t be a surprise that you suddenly see ants there. They also help other types of pests like cockroaches, termites and even rodents to access your home. Having them around means higher risks of having all kinds of infections or diseases carried by these insects entering your house which makes it even more dangerous.

What are the steps used for controlling ants?

There is usually two ways how to deal with an ant problem: use insecticide sprays yourself (although keep in mind that household sprays only temporarily kill ants on contact so they just come back later) or call an exterminator company like Bon Accord pest control from London UK  to handle things professionally. If you decide to use a professional pest control company then the first thing they do is inspect your property to determine the best course of action. They then usually apply a combination of insecticide dusts and residual liquid insecticides around your house in cracks, crevices, or void spaces where ants are likely to enter the structure. These treatments help prevent ants from entering your home while also killing them on contact so there is no need for you to risk using dangerous chemicals yourself which could end up poisoning children or pets that live with you.

Finally, if you have other pests like rodents or cockroaches then it’s quite possible that they share spaces where ants build their nests which means that an inspection performed by professional pest control company should take this into account as well since you don’t want these insects nesting in your walls or underneath furniture either.

How much does a professional pest control company cost?

The cost of hiring a professional exterminator company depends on many factors, such as how big your property is, the type and extent of damage caused by bugs and so on. You can get a free quote by calling or filling an online form on their website so it’s a good idea to do this step right away before you actually see any signs of insects in your home. That way you’ll have peace of mind knowing that all costs will be explained to you upfront. In some cases where additional problems require inspections or more extensive treatment then there might be an extra fee involved but for 90% of cases customers won’t have to pay anything out-of-pocket.

What are the pros of using a professional pest control company ?

–           They have expert knowledge on how to get rid of all kinds of insects since they do this for living – many people try to handle problems themselves by buying insecticides only to fail miserably without getting rid of bugs completely or causing additional damage to their property in the process;

–           Using chemicals that are too strong could end up poisoning both you and your family members which is why it’s always better to use environmentally safe products that will not harm you or make your home dangerous for children or pets;

–           Professional exterminators can efficiently treat different types of infestations at once because they know what insecticides to use where so you won’t have to worry about them being confused by different pests which can happen if you try to handle problems yourself.

–           Most companies offer free inspections and consultations with no obligations which means that you’ll know exactly what problems will cost before any treatment even starts;

–     Specialist pest control services like Bon Accord pest control from London UK are highly efficient because highly trained workers perform all necessary treatments using professional equipment;

–   Bon Accord Pest Control is a family company serving customers for over 20 years, they offer great service at unbeatable prices.

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.

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.
