Pest Control

Pest Control

Garden Ants can be a problem during Spring and Summer months.  All native British ants are outside dwellers and really only present a problem in and around buildings or in gardens.

Although black ants can eat many types of food, they are particularly attracted to sweet substances.  One successful foraging worker is able to communicate the information to her co-workers, with the inevitable result of vast numbers of worker ants invading and incidentally contaminating, suitable human foods.
