Seen an army of Ants marching through your home or business? Call the Experts
One of the most effective ways of preventing an ant invasion is to stop these pests from reaching food sources: especially sweet, but they will look for high protein sources, such as meats. Ants are notoriously determined on the trail of food and can get into jars and boxes through the tiniest gap.
All ants belong to the order of insects known as Hymenoptera, which include some of the most highly evolved insects known to man. Ants are social insects which construct and develop complex nests with a highly organised hierarchy of roles, attributed to male and females. Sterile, wingless female ants also know as workers build nests, nurse the young and search and gather food. Reproduction is performed by fertile females known as Queen ants and the males are responsible for the fertilisation of the Queens.
Live Insects If you are seeing a large number of ants in one area of your property you will likely have an infestation nearby.
Ant Pathways Some ants will lay down a pheromone trail as they move toward a food source.

Most common of all in the UK, and the easiest to treat is the Black / Garden Ant (Lasius niger), and for commercial and domestic premises alike, are pests that present numerous difficulties during the summer months.
Rogers Ant (Hypoponera punctatissima), are sub-tropical and are not confined to heated premises, preferring damp locations in the cracks and crevices and drainage runs.
The Pharaoh’s Ant (Monomorium pharantis), however, is of tropical origin and is at home in heated buildings. Treatment of this pest, if undertaken incorrectly will dramatically compound the infestation, by fragmenting the nests and doubling the problem.
