Ants are very tiny insects that live in colonies. We can get rid of ants by so many different ways.

The commonest species that invades UK houses in Birmingham and the West Midlands is the black garden ant, which is actually very dark brown. The worker ants, which are likely to enter properties when foraging for food, are 3 to 5mm in length.

All ants have the main divisions of the body (head, thorax and abdomen) distinctly separated by very narrow waists. They also have a sharp elbow joint in their antennae.

Black ants usually nest in soil but can also be found living under paving stones and concrete. They can become real nuisance pests because, during foraging, the workers may enter domestic, commercial and industrial premises – particularly food preparation areas – in search of sweet foodstuffs.

The mating swarms can also cause a short-term nuisance, although this lasts only a few days.
