If you have an ant problem, you’ll know how determined and organised they are. The most common species that invades UK homes is the Black Garden Ant. The foraging worker ants will come into your home in search of food. They are attracted to sweet foodstuffs which they take back to the nest to feed to the larvae and queen.
The pharoah ant is a tropical species which requires a minimum breeding temperature of 18°c and an optimum temperature of 30°C. It will typically be found in centrally heated flats and apartment blocks. It is smaller in size to the black garden ant and prefers protein to sweet foods. It will have multiple, hard to access, nests within the building structure.
The lesser seen ghost ants gained their name due to their pale colour. They will also typically be found in heated buildings. Controlling a ghost ant must be left to the professionals.
