Ants are a common pest problem for many UK homes and businesses. While they’re not as hazardous as other pests, an infestation is never a good sign.

They might not be as much of a health risk as other pest problems like cockroaches and fleas, but an ant infestation can be very unsightly. Furthermore, they do have the potential to spread diseases by contaminating food.

As leading Cheshire pest control experts, Pest In Peace understands the importance of promptly dealing with ants. Get in touch for a quote to treat your ant infestation today.

Got in touch with the team after finding a 'little' surprise in the loft. Mike was super helpful from the off, with options & advice. They even visited to back up their advice, which required no action on this occasion. But was very grateful for the Peace of Mind and professional service provided nonetheless. Thanks guys.

Had an issue with rats in our garden after some building work.(decking removed) Called up Mike and was given some tips to try before needing their help (moving bird feeders) their advice did work but I felt we needed to be sure so asked them to come and lay bait boxes. No sales pitch not pushy, just very polite and professional. Turned up on time snd communication was excellent. Didn’t invoice until work was complete and Mike was sure we were happy. Would definitely use again (although and I mean this in the nicest way possible - I hope we won’t need to! ) Excellent service - thank you.

Mike sent Brian out the same day when I called. Checked in with me the next day to see how things were going and follow up appointments were fantastic. Brian answered all my questions, very professional and found where the problem started, so now we have the all clear the entry point has now been sealed. Highly recommend this company, they are 100% superb.

I had a mole problem, called these guys and they quoted me to get the job done. They arrived bang on time on all occasions and because they managed to solve the problem with only two visits, they charged me less than the original quote. A brilliant, honest and reliable service/company, I'd recommend and will certainly use again. Thanks guys

Called the lovely Mike yesterday at Pest in Peace to clean and sanitise our Colshaw mobility bus after a visit from some rats before we parked it up for lockdown. Of course as ever, excellent service as he turned up today, cleaned out anything left by our visitors then used a sanitising fog to make sure it was all safe. Although I've known Mike for a long time as he went to school with my son, It had completely slipped my mind that he is also a qualified mechanic! What a bonus as he replaced the dead batteries and pumped up the tyres, what a hero! Thank you so much Mike, would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Ant Control Cheshire (1 Visit)

If you’ve noticed any signs of an ant infestation, you should work with us to get them removed as soon as possible. Ants won’t leave on their own, especially if they’ve built a nest on your property and found a tasty food source.

Most over-the-counter or home remedies for ants simply don’t work. White vinegar or peppermint oil are common DIY ant control methods, but they’re not nearly strong enough to get rid of an infestation.

Instead, you need the professional pest control service provided by Pest In Peace. A trained RSPH Level 2 team member can visit your home, inspect the infestation and begin using professional-grade ant gel and spray treatments to eradicate the ants. We’ll then be able to remove the nest and get your home or business back on track.

For more information on ant removal services, call us on 07980 597423. Pest In Peace supports clients across the Cheshire area, so you can get the expert pest control treatment you need.

Signs Of Ants In Your Property

Ants might be small, but these hard workers are surprisingly easy to spot. While the most obvious sign is seeing ants scurrying around, other common signs include:

  • What looks like lumps of dirt- but might be an ant’s nest- in and around your property
  • Discarded wings from flying ants
  • Seeing ants

Common Types Of Ants UK

There are two main species of ants that are likely to be encountered in the UK: the Black Garden Ant and the Pharaoh Ant. The Black Garden Ant is normally found stealing sweet or sugary foods from your kitchen. These are the worker ants, and once they find a food source, they alert other members of their colony. Before you know it, you have a trail of them, carrying their find back to the nest. In the summer, sexually mature queens and some males develop wings and become flying ants.

The Pharaoh Ant is much smaller but equally bothersome. Gold in colour, these ants favour a protein-based diet and enjoy warm, heated spaces. As such, they’re more commonly found in hospitals, nursing homes and warm buildings where they can find food and shelter.

Although less common, other types of ants you might see in the UK include red ants, yellow meadow ants and carpenter ants. Carpenter ants can be particularly destructive in properties with wooden features. There’s a treatment option for every type of ant in the UK, but each is slightly different depending on the species and the size of the infestation.
