Why are we over run with ants?
Ants love warm dry weather and with warmer winters and hotter summers we have seen a rise in ant infestations over the last few years, coupled with that we now have ants from southern Europe happily living in the south of England and I would expect that if climate change warms the environment then problems with ants, both natural to the UK and those invasive species, will only get worse.
I live in a flat and we have these tiny ants, what are they?
There is a species of ant found across the UK that heralds from north Africa - the Pharaoh ant and this has become a real problem for pest controllers, these ants have the ability for a small group of workers to take some fertilised egg's and bud off from the main colony when they become stressed.
This usually occurs when someone tries to eradicate the ants with over the counter treatments - Pharaoh ants require a specialist poison which is only available for professional use.

Ants can be found throughout the summer months and although in themselves a nuisance they can spread harmful bacteria as they travel through our homes and businesses.
Some ants like the Pharaoh ants can bite and children will be disturbed if they have invaded bedding.
Flying ants will be a problem throughout the year as the different species will all have 'their' times when the colonies all synchronize their release of Queen ants and the males. We cannot treat these ants as they have to desire to feed only mate and begin the process of building a colony.
