- Ants are eusocial insects from the Formicidae family, related to wasps and bees.
- They form colonies ranging in size, up to tens of thousands.
- Ants make up to 25% of the world’s terrestrial animal biomass!
- The most common ant in the UK is the Black or Garden Ant (Lasius Niger).
- Black ants like to nest in dry, sandy soil and are omnivorous.
- Ants can pick up pathogens (harmful bacteria) on their bodies when they feed on and walk across waste, which can spread as they crawl across worksurfaces and other areas in your property.
