Having a colony of ants take up residence around your property can be an annoying experience, with an ant infestation in a house or outdoor patio areas typically comprising of many thousands of individual insects.

Typical Ant Colony Lifecycle
Most ant species have a similar lifecycle, which starts with the nuptial flight. This is when winged queens and males mate, and is the time when a flying ant infestation is likely to occur. After mating, the queen ant will lay eggs and the larvae that hatch from these will eventually pupate to produce the first adult ants. The queen will continue to lay eggs to increase the size of the colony and this can lead to a nest having hundreds of thousands of adults. If this is disturbed, it can break up and in some cases, this may lead to new colonies becoming established elsewhere. This can be a problem when using a DIY ant control treatment and it can be more sensible to leave the job of Haydock ant infestation removal to professionals.
