In the UK the most common species of ant is the Black Garden Ant. Black Ants are usually found outdoors under paving stones and building foundations, but often invade homes and businesses seeking food to take back to their nest. Black ants are dark brown to black in colour, and approx 3-5 mm long. Worker ants leave a pheromone to direct others towards a food source, which is why you often see ants following each other along a specific trail. Although ants do not transmit disease, ant infestations indoors are a nuisance and can cause distress and inconvenience, especially in kitchens or food preparation / storage areas.
Ants can also cause uncomfortable bits and stings to pets and children, which is why it is best to eradicate the infestation as soon as one is identified. Once they are gone, try and avoid dropping or leaving sticky/sweet items in or around your home. This is especially relevant in summer when ants are more active and things like dropped ice creams and spilled drinks are more common outside the home.
