With summer just around the corner black garden ants pests will soon be with
us. These are the ants that swarm homes and gardens all over England in
the warm months. Black garden ants, like any other ants, build nests
underground and their numbers usually multiply in summer because that is
when they mate, lay eggs that hatch into larvae and then mature into
adults. In nature these ants feed on nectar - the sweet stuff that is
produced by flowers, but when their numbers increase, like they do in
summer, there isn't enough to feed the colony, and so they look for
alternative food sources.
The first place they will head into is your kitchen, looking for
anything sweet that may have been left out in the open. It can be some
spilt juice, a spot of jam, uncovered sugar or even bits of cake. It
takes one ant to make the discovery. As soon as it does it has its fill
and then heads back to the nest to "tell" the others. It will leave a
pheromone trail so that it can find its way back to the food source with
its colony-mates, and soon they will all be in your kitchen looking for
That is not the only problem with black garden ants. When they decide
to form their colonies in the foundation of your home they will eat
through the concrete literally turning it into sand. This expands cracks
on the floor and if they ants are not dealt with over time you will
eventually have property damage.
The problem with black garden ants is that they are extremely hard to
get rid of. You can eliminate them from your garden using pesticides but
that would probably mean killing the plants as well. In your house,
however, you can easily keep them out by creating a barrier.
