pharaoh ant


Size, Shape and Colour: 
The queens are 3.6mm, however the workers and males vary from 2-3mm, they have a large head with slightly elbowed antennae and black eyes, the males will have wings, they are a pale yellow, however queens are darker in colour. The ants have darker heads and abdomens than the rest of the body.

Biology: 
Approximatley 350 eggs are laid by the queen of which the larvae hatch in 2 weeks and are fed by workers, soon after pupation takes place then full grown ants hatch but however this process is temperature dependent. Ideal nests temperatures are 25oC and humid. Nests can become too large and “budding” takes place, this procedure entails young queens and a number of workers breakaway from colony to find new nesting sites.

Preferred Foods: 
Any organic matter, sweet and high protein food stuffs.

Habitat: 
Throughout the UK. Increasing in their range. They need heated buildings to survive, will exploit drains, ducting, cladded pipes and once established can spread quickly throughout any domestic or commercial premises.

Pest control treatment for PHARAOH Ants - Call 0203 600 0351
 

As with most of our pest control treatments, we usually do two visits as a follow up visit allows us to make sure any actions we take are successful. Our fully trained pest control technician starts by talking to you about the problems you are having before assessing the situation.  Please be aware that the pest controller will often need to inspect other areas and not just the visible source.

The normal treatment for Pharaoh Ants is by using a gel along the runs they use so the worker ants can take the gel back to the nest to slowly eradicate it. In houses we normally need to treat all areas where the ants may have originally found their way in.

As with all our treatments, the pest control technician will leave a report with you with details of any treatments and recommendations.  If a follow up visit is likely to be needed, our technician will arrange a suitable date and time with you. Generally this will be about a week or two later and sometimes a second treatment is required.
We are a leading pest control company working in and around the Hertfordshire area, using the latest techniques to ensure your pest problems are completely eradicated.
