Black worker ants dragging vegetation to the colonyThere are currently more than 8000 species of ant known to man. Different species of ants construct and maintain their colonies in a variety of ways. Species also hunt for food in different ways and may store their food distinctively. Most species spend their time scavenging from waste material; however, some species need to be eradicated and controlled. For example, the Pharaoh’s Ant (Monomorium Pharaonis) can be problematic and virtually impossible to remove once introduced into properties/premises. The Black Garden Ant (Laisus Niger), generally inhabited outdoor areas, can be found in properties searching for sweet food sources.

Irritant Factor
The worker ants of both species above are a significant problem when searching for a food source or water down a trail. Both species feast on most foodstuffs, with the Pharaoh’s ant having a particular fondness for meat, cheese, and fats, whilst the Black Garden Ant prefers sweeter food sources.

Pharaoh ants also have a predisposition to infest hospitals and begin feeding on blood and bodily excretions. Furthermore, they commonly gnaw on the packaging and have even been known to bite children. They are pesky pests that pose a significant threat to human health and must be controlled.

Black ants congregate around sweet food sources inside of properties but are a problem outside too. They remove the soil, which dries it out and makes it less fertile. They also assist in the growth of greenflies by feeding on their sweet secretions.

Anatomy of the Ant
Black garden ant species Lasius niger
Essentially, the body is divided into three main sections: head, thorax, and abdomen. Highly narrow waists join these segmented body parts. All ants possess antennae that are joined by an elbow-like appendage. Pharaoh ants have solid mandibles and fore wings that are attached to hind wings. Worker ants are 2mm long with a distinctive yellow/brown colouration. Whereas males are 3mm long, have wings, but do not fly. The Black worker ants are longer than their counterparts and can grow to 5mm in length.
