About Ants

Black Ant or Garden Ant

• Very dark brown/black colour
• 3-5mm long
• Head, thorax and abdomen separated by narrow waists
• Sharp joint in antennae

Lifecycle:

A queen ant will start to build a nest in the springtime and produce lots of workers, who forage for food and look after the nest.

Flying ants are the young queens and males that leave the nest in midsummer in order to make their nuptial flights (for a few days only). After mating the males die off and the fertilised queens go off and find a suitable nest site to start a new colony the following springtime.

Treatment:

Residual insecticide spray treatment applied to affected areas internally, including spray treatment to the immediate perimeter to prevent ants migrating in from outside.
One summer’s guarantee provided for internal areas.

Pharaoh’s Ant

Pharaoh’s Ants are small tropical ants that prefer warm and humid environments and can be found in centrally heated blocks of flats and hospitals. They are 2mm long, yellow/white in colour and have multiple, often inaccessible nests within the building structure.

Treatment is very different (from the black ant) and a thorough survey would need to be carried out. Residual insecticides are never used as this may cause a panic reaction in the nest resulting in the queens forming new colonies, thus spreading the problem. Bait treatments are very effective, the bait is taken back to nest and the queens, larvae and workers are killed off.
