Things to Remember about Professional Mossley Ant Infestation Removal
Ants are small insects that travel far and wide in search of wood and water. There are different types of ant species.

The garden ant is black or dark brown in colour while the pharaoh ant is yellowish brown in colour.
Facts about Ants
Ants are social insects. This means that they live in groups called colonies. A colony can be home to more than a million ants. The colonies consist of workers and the queen. The queen lays the eggs while the workers take care of the eggs and forage for food. On average, the life-span of a worker ant is 7 years while that of the queen is 15 years.
You may have heard of someone talking about of a flying ant infestation. Normally, ants do not fly. However, at certain times of the year especially around August, young queens escape and fly away to set up new colonies. When people talk of a flying ant infestation, they are talking about a swarm of these ants.
The presence of ants in your home can mean one of two things. Either they are just looking around or you are already dealing with an infestation.
