Problems Caused

The nuisance factor is the biggest problem when it comes to an ant infestation. If they find the food they like they can swarm around it in huge numbers so that it basically becomes inedible. They will create trails across floors, walls, and ceilings to follow for foraging and once in place will keep using them to search for food unless Salford ant infestation removal treatment is used to stop them. The new queens that emerge during the time of mating have wings and this can create a flying ant infestation that causes problems if a nest is inside a property.
