Ant Nest Removal FAQ's

What are the most common Ants to infest a house?

The most common pest Ant species we get called to treat is the Black Garden Ant (Lasius Niger), these are attracted to sweet foods, and often migrate from ant nests outside the property through small holes in the brickwork.

How many Ants are in a nest?

Lasius niger is a very quick, robust and prolific ant, using formic acid and its jaws as a means of attack/defence. black ant colonies can grow very large containing around 15,000 worker ants, all though about 4,000 to 7,000 is the average. Black ants eat insects, nectar, and even the bodies of their own dead or ants from other colonies. They are also attracted to sweet sugary substances.

Do Ants bite or sting?

The  black garden doesn't sting but can bite, red ants, wood ants and other flying ants will sometimes bite. Ant bites and stings are generally harmless, although you'll probably feel a nip and a pale pink mark may develop around the bite.

Why are Ants coming into my house?

Food: Ants in general are foragers by nature, worker ants will scavenge for food from many meters from the ant's nest, notify other ants of any potential food sources by leaving scent or pheromone trails and carry the food back to the ant nest for the rest of the colony.

Water: Though ants need water to survive, they don't require a large source of it to prosper. Most ants can get water from their food. However, some species of ants, such as the tropical import known as the pharaoh ant, must nest close to a reliable water source.

Ant Facts & Information
Ant Species

There are thousands of ant species worldwide, and with over 50 species here in the UK, most of which can be found in the south of the country, the most common is the Garden or Black Ant which is resilient enough to live outdoors in nutrient-rich, moist environments - often beneath warm, damp paving slabs. Other tropical ant species such as Roger's, Ghost and Pharaoh's Ants can only survive with the warmth provided inside heated buildings .

Black Garden Ant

Appearance:  As there name suggests they are a black/dark brown colour. Worker ants can be up-to 4mm in size where as the queen is much bigger around 15mm in length. Black garden ants to not have a stinger, although the can bite.

Life Cycle: Queens overwinter in soil and they will emerge in spring as temperatures rise. Eggs are laid in late spring. Larvae will  hatch 3-4 weeks later.  The larvae feed on secretions from the queen’s salivary glands until the first worker ants emerge. Worker ants continue with larval care, taking care of the queen, nest building and food foraging. Fertile males are produced later in the season, along with the queens ready to mate to start the cycle next year. It's at this time when the fertile males and queens emerge from the nest as winged ants (flying ants), as mating happens on the wing, males will the perish once mating has happened.

Habits: Foraging worker ants follow well–defined trails around food sources, this is where if you watch closely you will see a line of several ants all following the same path to and from the nest. Sweet foods are preferred but high protein foods will also be taken.

 Black garden ant nests are often outdoors in soil and below paving slabs on the sunny side of buildings. These nest locations can be identified by the presence of finely powdered soil around nest exit holes.
