The Garden Ant (Lasius Niger)

Key Features

Worker ants are the most common though on thundery days flying ants can be found which are males and queen ants. They are predominantly black or brown in colour.

Biology

Ants have a complex social system based on the nest dominated by a queen, which can last for many years. The workers ants find food and they feed on nectar, seeds and small insects.

Significance

Nests are normally found in soil under paving stones and concrete or under insulation inside houses. When ants have nested indoors infestations may cause problems at any time of year. Large quantities of workers ants may be found searching for sugary food sources. Mating swarms of ants may also cause a problem.
