External entry points including weep holes, door and window frames, building perimeters fence lines, pathways, storage shed, gardens, plants, trees, cracks and crevices, drains and any other areas that ants may use as a path to your home
Internal floor perimeters, roof voids, beneath appliances, behind furniture objects that cannot be removed during treatments and we apply gel baits to the window frames and cupboards where required, so there is no need to remove any stored items prior to treatment.
Using these methods we are completely confident that your property will be ant free and always offer a full 12 month warranty on this type of treatment.
We will also discuss when required about the pruning of any branches and plants that may be in contact with your building that can provide the ants with a bridge across any treated areas.
