Key Features of Ants:
The most common species that invades UK houses is the Black Garden Ant, which is actually very dark brown. The worker ants, which are likely to enter properties when foraging for food, are 3 to 5mm in length.
All ants have the main divisions of the body (head, thorax and abdomen) distinctly separated by very narrow waists. They also have a sharp elbow joint in their antennae.
Biology of Ants:
Ants are highly organised social insects, with each nest being centred around one reproductive female, the queen, and her sterile daughters, the workers. It is the foraging workers that invade buildings in search of sweet foodstuffs, which they take back to the nest to feed the larvae and queen.
They are also found in public houses especially in and around the bar areas near pumps etc.
"Flying ants" are the reproductive males and females - the potential queens. They have a nuptial swarming flight during a few days in July and August, typically just after stormy weather. The males die shortly after mating and the females seek out nesting sites to build new colonies in the following spring.
Distribution of Ants:
Black Ants are common throughout Europe.
People and companies think they can treat the pest problem themselves, only to find that they make the infestation worse by purchasing products from DIY outlets with a poor percentage of insecticide. This may prove to be an expensive waste of time and money.
