Garden Ants


Are garden ants a health hazard?

Garden/Black ants are not regarded as a 'significant risk to public health', however they can be a nuisance when found in the home.

Where can they be found?

Garden ants are found throughout Britain and usually nest in gardens and areas around buildings. They often enter homes in search of food.

Are ants a problem?

Garden ants can find the smallest of cracks in buildings and if they locate a source of food within the building, they communicate this to other ants and then lead them into the building to feed. During the summer, the flying stages of the ants may be seen emerging from the nest in large numbers. This event normally lasts for only a few days.

How can I get rid of Ants?

Remove the food sources, ensure that sugary foods are kept in sealed containers and that all food and drink spillages are cleared up immediately.


The treatment for infested premises is the application of a liquid insecticide approved for use against Ants. The insecticide will be applied to all cracks and crevices where Ants could be hiding, including outside (weather permitting) It is recommended to avoid using the vacuum on treated surfaces for 14 days after treatment.
