Getting rid of ants in your business

In the commercial environment ants are more than just a nuisance. They can cost you money and harm your reputation. This is particularly true in organizations that handle food - like food processing plants, restaurants and bars - or those that require sterilization such as healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical industries. All of these businesses need to make sure they have the highest standards of hygiene – and that means being ant-free.

Without adequate ant control in your business you could suffer from:

Waste - Contaminated food and other products will have to be thrown away, costing you money and resources.

Fear - Infestations in places like hospitals and care homes can spread pathogens and alarm patients or residents, leading them to question your hygiene standards.

Reputation Damage - If your reputation suffers, so too will your profits, as customers are put off by the presence of ants.

How to get rid of carpenter ants

These relentless insects will threaten the structural stability of businesses by tunneling through wood to build their nests. Unlike other ant species, carpenter ants can be difficult to locate and require professional treatment because of the damage they cause to wood elements and foam insulation in your building. Rentokil recommends the below carpenter ant control methods depending on the specific nature of your infestation.

Dust Material treatments - A very effective treatment method for carpenter ants indoors; pesticidal dust materials both flush out hidden ant nests and remove the carpenter ants.

Nest & Barrier treatments - The most common method of treatment for carpenter ants is the treatment of nests and barriers with residual insecticides.

Perimeter treatments - In addition to applying a treatment to any carpenter ant nests/barriers, a treatment is applied to the perimeter of  your building with a liquid residual material.

Year-round pest management - Regular inspections of your business by a pest control professional throughout the year is the best method to identify and prevent any issues with carpenter ants or any other pest. The Rentokil Year Round Protection Plan offers regularly scheduled preventive services every four months. Contact your local Rentokil office for more details.
