As the majority of ant species prefer warmer temperatures, our climate is not suitable for many of them.
However, the ant species found in the UK can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or black ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside, so you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel in a wide range searching for food, following chemical trails they have established and clustering around the source of food, becoming a nuisance in homes and businesses.
Outside, small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls can indicate their origin.
