Ant Control for your Commercial Premises

Ants pose hygiene risks as they contaminate food, as they crawl through unsanitary areas before making an appearance in your building. Ants enter buildings in search of food, and leave pheromone trails to the food source which attracts many other ants indoors.

Ants also cause various other issues, such as damaging stock and business reputation, which can result in financial implications to businesses. This is especially a main concern in the following industries: food and beverage, manufacturing and processing, hospitality, restaurants and catering.

The most common ant inhabiting urban areas is the Garden Ant, also known as the black ant. Other ants found in Uganda are the Driver ant (a type of army ant), the Golden spiny ant and the Sugar ant. Learn more about ants.
