Ants

Ant 3 Ant 2

There are two main types of ant. The Common Black Ant  

and the Pharaoh’s Ant. Both type of ant can be found in the UK.

 

The Common Black Ant

The Common Black Ant is either dark brown or black in colour and 3.5-5mm in size and as it's name states is the most common type of ant seen in the UK. In winter the queen ant will survive in the soil while the rest of the ant colony soon dies.

 

The ants will lay their eggs in the spring, being produced in late summer, often near and sometimes in houses. Black Ants are omnivorous and have a taste for sugary substances, normally making a nuisance in the kitchen.

 

Pharaoh's Ants

Pharaoh’s Ants are distinguished from common ants as they are red in colour and approximately 2mm in size. They require uniformly warm, humid conditions for successful development, therefore allowing them to reproduce at any time of the year. They may be winged but will not fly.

 

Control Methods

Treatment for Ants will vary by type. For the Common Black (garden) Ant a wet spray is used in the area where the ants are seen. As a wet spray it will be able to seep into hard to reach areas. The spray is a contact insecticide which will kill ants on contact once the spray dries to a film.

 

With Pharoah's Ants the treatment is to place bait stations along their route. The bait will be taken back to the nest by the ants.

 

Prevention

In order to prevent the attraction of ants ensure that no food items (in particular sweet items) are left lying around.
