General Ant Control Information
When ants infest buildings and their surroundings and feed on human food, they are labelled as pests.,
Good food hygiene, sprays, dusts, and baits can all be used to keep pest ants at bay.
The best way of ant control depends on the type of ant you have.
Ants are a member of the Hymenoptera order and a member of the Formicidae family. Bees and wasps are also included in this order. Ants have critical roles in seed and pollen dispersion and soil formation as predators and scavengers.
50 ant species have been identified in the United Kingdom. Ants construct their nests in and around buildings, congregating in locations where food is being prepared.
Ants can be predators or scavengers, and they can eat a wide variety of foods. It is common for these social insects to establish and maintain a permanent nest. Changing the location of the nest is usual when conditions are bad.
The number of Ants in a colony can range from a few dozens to millions. These castes of “workers” in larger colonies are largely made up of sterile wingless female Ants. Minor and major castes (or the army caste) are two examples of worker specialisation. These people have distinct roles to play, such as feeding and caring for the young, and their appearances reflect this. Most ant colonies have one or more reproductive females, known as ‘queens,’ and one or more viable males, referred to as ‘drones.’
