Despite their small size, ants can cause a real problem when they find their way into the home. There are more than eight thousand different types of ants, which can make identifying the type of ant in your home tricky for non-experts. However, the most common kinds of ants that can be found in and around the home include pharaoh ants and black garden ants.

Why Ant Control is Necessary
Some types of ants bite, which can cause distress to humans and animals. In addition, some people are allergic to ant bites and can develop nasty rashes that can be particularly unpleasant for young children. Pharaoh ants can be particularly aggressive and it is not uncommon for them to bite children, while they carry pathogens, making them a potential health risk. Ants can also be a nuisance in the garden, as they make the soil dry and help to encourage the reproduction of greenfly, which in turn attack plants in the garden.
How to Recognise Ant Infestation in House
Unlike many types of insects, ants do not shy away from humans and seem to be virtually oblivious to humans unless they are disturbed. This makes spotting an ant infestation fairly easy. Ants tend to march in a line towards food sources, which could be as small as a couple of grains of sugar too much large food items that have been left unattended. In some cases, it may be possible to follow the line of ants back to the general location of their nest, although the nest will usually be located underneath the ground, or inside the wall or under the floorboards if it is located inside the home and may be difficult to access.
