Romiley Ant Infestation Removal
Amazingly, there are more than 8000 types of ant worldwide. All species build their nests, form their social networks and seek out their food in different ways. Many ant species scavenge for food and often feast on waste materials and sometimes on other creatures. The Pharaoh Ant species can be particularly problematic if introduced into a living space and they can be extremely difficult to remove. Another species which is common through the United Kingdom is the Black Garden Ant, which is attracted into commercial and private properties by sweet smelling food sources.

An ant body is segmented into three main sections: head, thorax and abdomen. All of these body parts are conjoined by slim waits and ants possess antennae that are linked by elbow-like appendages.
Pharaoh ants have biting mandibles and have working wings, which are attached to the hind wings. However, this species of ant is not known to regularly fly. Worker ants measure between 1.5mm and 2mm and are coloured yellow and brown; whereas, males are 3mm in length, possess wings, but do not fly. Queens are usually 3.5-5mm long and are a distinct blood red colour. The Black Garden worker often measures between 3.4mm and 5mm and is dark in appearance. The Queen of the species is often 15mm long and light-mid brown in colour.
