The common Black Garden Ant is prolific throughout the UK and a typical nest houses between 4000 - 7000 ants. They often target food preparation surfaces looking for food often found in the form of sugar residue from drinks etc. This is where the risk comes into play as they can spread bacteria causing food poisoning if not quickly eradicated.
Around August time, winged black ants start to leave the nest. These are the fertile ants looking to mate and are often the cause of alarm as they can emerge in large numbers covering windows as they attempt to get outside.
So don't leave those few ants you've seen crawling around as there are usually many more nearby and the earlier they are treated the easier they are to eradicate. Contact us today and discuss your affordable treatment options.
