Have ants invaded your kitchen or office? Do you have more guests at your barbecue than you’d like? The black garden ant is harmless & they can be a nuisance. Emris Services can resolve your ant problem quickly and safely.

Ants are very social insects and are related to wasps and bees. It happened some 130 million years ago when they lost their wings. There are more than 22,000 Species of ants.

We identify ants by their antennae. Ants form colonies that range in size from a few dozen to millions. The ants are either workers or soldiers, but they all work together for the queen and in supporting the colony. Ants have colonised almost every land mass and can adapt to varying climates. They can acquire resources and defend themselves against predators.

However, their ability to exploit resources brings ants into conflict with humans. They can damage crops and invade buildings. The most common species that invade our home is the black garden ant, which is very dark brown. All ants have the main divisions of the body (head, thorax, abdomen) distinctly separated by very narrow waists and have a sharp elbow joint in their antennae.

They are highly organised social insects. It is the foraging worker ants that invade buildings in search of food. These are 3mm to 5mm in size and are attracted to sweet foodstuffs. It is that food that then feeds the larvae and queen .
