Ants contaminate food in businesses and homes
Black (garden) ants are the main reason we are called to homes and businesses to carry out ant control. Although they are not generally recognised as carrying diseases, they can pass through unhygienic substances as they search for food. If they then infiltrate a food source in a domestic kitchen or in a food production facility, contamination can occur – leading to a human health hazard.
For food production businesses in particular this is a huge problem, as the law states that food and drink must be fit for human consumption. To prevent your business falling foul of the law, contact Active Pest Solutions. We deal with ant infestations on a one-off call-out basis and professional ant control can also be included in our pest control contracts to help prevent pest ant problems occurring in the first place.
For example, ants in houses are a common pest control problem which Active Pest Solutions are asked to tackle. We respond to such call-outs as quickly as possible, reassuring anxious home owners by dealing with the problem swiftly and effectively.
A hairdresser’s shop in Leven needed our ant control services after ants invaded the front-of-shop area. On this occasion, we used a baiting system to eradicate the ants. A similar ant infestation in Kinross-shire required our pest control expertise to tackle the situation effectively and reduce the concerns of both staff and customers.
Similarly, a Dunfermline conference centre sought our professional pest control services after ants infested a dining area. We were also called in to deal with ants in an Indian restaurant’s food preparation area and did so quickly and effectively – to the immense relief of the owner.
Another Fife business, this time a delicatessen in Kirkcaldy, required urgent ant control intervention after flying ants swarmed into the shop causing distress and concern to staff.
The ant control requirements may vary, but the reliability of our service never does. Call us on 01577 862035 and let us solve your ant problem too (though if you have problems with any of your aunts, sorry we can’t help!).
