How to get rid of pest ants in commercial properties
Ants can cause serious problems for businesses, leading to wasted food, reputational damage and economic losses. One common misconception about ant pests is that they are only a problem during certain seasons. The truth is, ant colonies can form any time of year, and it can be difficult to get rid of them once they’ve been established.
Food safety notices or prosecution as a result of ant pests can also be costly. Contaminated food must be discarded and disposed of, which can lead to significant wastage. The presence of ants in a store or in products bought by customers can also cause adverse publicity, resulting in lost business.
In order to avoid these problems, it is important to take steps to prevent and control ant pests.
Some commercial property owners try to take matters into their own hands by damaging ant colonies or attempting to drown them with water. However, ants have special bodily functions that make it difficult for them to drown, and they will often try to rebuild any colonies that have been damaged.
