Garden ants

What they look like

The black or garden ant is the most common British ant to enter houses and it is found in almost all parts of the country. The worker is very dark brown. Some ants will also have wings. The queen, which is rarely seen except for certain months in the summer, is brown in colour.

Where they live

The queen makes the nest in the soil, in grassed areas beneath paving and patios and sometimes in hollow trees. The nests are usually outside buildings although sometimes they may be found in the walls or foundations of a house.

How to get rid of them

We provides a pest control service for the treatment of garden ants in domestic properties. Fully trained pest control officers will survey the infestation, and then place treatments in the most appropriate locations. Follow up visits will be made in order to ensure the success of the treatment.
