Different species have different preferences but common nesting sites are in the soil, under stones and pavements and in walls.
Ants do not carry disease but they are a health hazard as they can pick up pathogens and bacteria as they travel which can then contaminate any foodstuff they crawl on. Ants are particularly attracted to sweet and sticky food. In some species, worker ants source the food and once they have found a supply, they can leave a pheromone trail which attracts other ants to the pathway to the food. This is why you often see trails of ants all seemingly following the same route. If you suspect an infestation in your house it is easy to see why speedy professional Chadderton ant infestation removal from Young's Pest Control is essential.

Flying ant infestation is particularly unpleasant indoors.
