The most common ant for causing infestation issues in the UK is the Black Garden Ant. Typically visible and active in your garden they are usually found under flower pots but they will enter houses in the constant quest for food.
Ant infestations are one of the most common domestic pest infestations. Arriving in swarms the insects invade kitchen areas in homes and offices across the country in search of food and shelter despite being more inclined towards sunnier climates (arent we all?) there are still a few types of Ants that reside in the UK ranging from the most commonly recognised Black ant or Garden ant to the Red ant and flying ants that plague our garden lawns!
