Ants.

Unfortunately ants are now an all to common feature of summer, spring and autumn too. Although ants don't pose any serious heath issues for members of the public they can have a damaging impact on your business and its reputation, especially if you serve or handle food. The Food Hygiene Regulations and Food Safety Act states that any food or beverages that are contaminated by ants will be deemed unfit for human consumption and your business may be put at risk with fines, loss of reputation or even closure.

Signs of an Ant Infestation.

  • The presence of ants in or around your property.

 

  • Classic ant paths or "marching" lines to and from your property.

 

  • Mounds of earth that may suggest an ant nest.

What to do Next?

Eradicating an ant infestation in a commercial property will require a professional pest control expert. There are however some steps you can take to prevent an infestation occurring in the first place:

  • Clean food from all floors and surfaces.

 

  • Cover all foods.

 

  • Clean behind appliances as well as visible areas.

 

  • Use airtight containers if keeping food.

 

  • Clear any pet food from the floor as soon as possible after feeding.

 

  • Insect proof cracks and crevices around windows and door ways.
