Ants can be a common nuisance insect that can quickly become a problem in a wide variety of industrial and domestic settings. Ants are often attracted to kitchens by food and sticky substances. Often you can halt the problem by making sure worktops are kept clean and that all food is either covered or in an airtight container.

Tips on getting rid of Ants!
- Track down where they are coming in and seal off the entry point
- Clear up any sticky residues on worktops, because ants are attracted to sweet things
- Cover up any foodstuffs which could be a food source for ants
Common types of Ant Removal breeds in the UK
Here we will cover the 6 most common types of ants found inside the UK.
Black/Garden Ant (Lasius Niger) – These are the evasive types of ants that will somehow find a way into your home. They commonly nest under pavements, in soil and on the edge of a lawn.
Yellow Meadow Ant (Lasius Flavus) – Also found in gardens is the Yellow Meadow Ant. They can build small mounds in the garden and are particularly skilled nest builders. They are rarely seen unless their underground nest is disturbed.
Red Ant (Myrmica Ruba) – These ants are deep red in colour and can carry a painful sting. They generally live in small colonies of up to 300 members. They are quite an aggressive type of ant.
Red Wood Ant/Horse Ant (Formica Rufa) – These ants are typically found in Southern England’s woodland and are quite aggressive towards other colonies. They can amount to up to 100,000 ants per colony and can bite and spray formic acid very effectively.
Black Wood Ant (Formica Fusca) – These are the cousins of the red wood ant and are more timid. They generally nest below rotting logs and have been found nesting in Southern England and the Midlands.
Black Stinging Ant (Tetramorium Caespitum) – The small black stinging ant is found in the southern and western parts of England and each nest can contain up to 30,000 ants per colony.
Flying Ants (Alate) – Normal ants with wings. If you are seeing an increasing number of flying ants near your property then the chances are there is a nest nearby. They fly out of their nest with the goal of mating and can often lead to new colonies being formed.
