Worker ants are the most common though on thundery days flying ants can be found which are males and queen ants. We receive many calls to remove ants. Ants are predominantly black or brown in colour.
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.
Any nests are normally found in soil under paving stones and concrete or under insulation inside houses. To remove ants when they have nested indoors 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.
