You may have seen on the news lately that there has been a surge in bed bug infestations throughout Europe and the UK. Anyone travelling at the moment would be right to be concerned about the risk of bed bugs. Bed bugs are one kind of souvenir you certainly don't want to bring home with you.
Ants are a common pest in the UK. Ask any pest control expert, and they will tell you that an ant infestation can quickly get out of control if you don't take action. One or two ants in your home might not seem like a problem, but you can guarantee the rest of the ant colony is nearby and preparing to invade your space.
