Ants

28 Mar

Have you noticed a rise in ant  numbers in your house in the last few weeks? Yes, so have we. Usually we think of ants coming out in vast armies in the summer, and we prepare accordingly. But at this time of year they come out of dormancy, and tend to start putting in an appearance, generally outside. As it’s been so cold this winter, they’re coming indoors, albeit in smaller numbers than in the summer, but they’re there.

We need the ants to aerate our soil and help keep down certain pest populations, so don’t reach for the ant powder too hastily. Better, keep the areas where you don’t want them clean so they can’t scavenge there. But if you find you have an infestation, we can help.
