- Nesting sites: Ants will often build their nests in walls, floors, foundations, trees, gardens, and lawns. Keep an eye out for small piles of dirt, sand, or soil near cracks and crevices.
- Damage to food: Ants are always on the lookout for food sources. They may gain access to plastic and cardboard packaging, leaving behind telltale signs of holes and bite marks.

Why do ants come into my home?
Ant nests are known to contain more than 100,000 worker ants. The queen has a primary role in building new nets and laying eggs, whereas forager ants are responsible for finding food and water. If forager ants find a food source in your home, they will lead other forager ants to the food using a pheromone trail resulting in many ants coming into your home.
Types of Ants in London
Ants are an incredibly diverse species, with many different types worldwide. Discover the ant species most likely to be causing you problems in London below:
Garden ants are your stereotypical ants; they are found everywhere, from homes and gardens to businesses and pavements, taking advantage of any tiny crack they can find. They are black in colour, yet sometimes appear dark brown depending on the lighting. The worker-type garden ants typically measure up to 5mm long, whereas the Queen can grow up to 15mm long.
Flying ants cause enormous problems for homes and businesses across London during summer. They are male garden ants who develop wings and emerge from the nest during the warmer day for an annual mating ritual.
The Pharaoh ant is a tropical ant that loves to live in warm environments like your insulated, heated home or business! They are smaller than a garden ant, with pharaoh ant workers measuring roughly 2-3mm long and the Queen approximately 4-6mm long. They are yellow in colour, with a slightly translucent body, black eyes and a dark abdomen. Pharaoh ants pose a particular challenge, as unlike garden ants with individual queens, they have multiple queens in their colonies.
Carpenter ants are incredibly hard workers. They make their nests inside wooden structures and, unfortunately, cause extensive and sometimes irreparable damage as they do. They are black like garden ants; however, they are much larger, with workers measuring 6-12mm long and the Queen growing up to 20mm long on average.
