The Black Garden Ant is the commonest species that invades the home, their colour is actually very dark brown. Worker ants are the foraging visitors that invade buildings in search of food. Sweet foodstuffs are the main attractions for them, which they collect and carry back to the nest.
Some useful facts about Ants

- Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
- They can nest just about anywhere in and around your house, in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.
- Colonies numbers range from 300,000 to 500,000
Pharaoh’s Ants are thought to be native to Africa, although it is commonly found in America. Unfortunately, these are located and mainly invade commercial food handling establishments such as hotels, grocery stores and hospitals.
Ant Removal Process
A professional pest control service will be required for larger or multiple infestations of ants.
Most ‘do-it-yourself’ ant control approaches will only kill the ants you see. If a Pharoh ant colony is not treated correctly the colony will divide causing double the issues. Only truly effective treatments can penetrate and destroy nests to help prevent these pests from returning.
