An ant infestation inside or outside of your property can be distressing, not only because of the discomfort and stress they cause, but because they bring with them the risk of disease being carried into your home or commercial premises.
Common Black Ant – Native to the UK, these ants are usually found nearby to homes and other buildings. Attracted to food and sweet items, they often make a nuisance of themselves whilst potentially carrying disease in high risk areas such as kitchens.
Pharaoh Ant – A tropical ant, the pharaoh variant like to take refuge in heated areas, particularly indoors. They pose a problem for hospitals and larger buildings, carrying disease with them.
Ghost Ant – Coming from the USA, ghost ants are now increasing in numbers in the UK. As with the pharaoh ant, they prefer warmer habitats, driving them into homes and businesses. Kitchens and bathrooms are among their favoured places, potentially carrying disease with them.
Other varieties of ant include wood ants and flying ants, both of which have been known to bite on rare occasions.
