The common black ant is around 4mm long, and is the most common garden ant found around the house. An active insect, ants nest in walls, grass and under paving. It will forage widely in search of food, which is how it comes to enter domestic premises. They usually prefer sweet foods.
Ants live in colonies, and when people see ants, they usually see worker ants attempting to gather food. Extermination of these is quite simple; a poison powder is deposited near the nest, and this powder coats the worker ants, who then take it back to the nest, where it poisons the entire colony from the inside.
An ant colony, depending on species, can exist with a queen, or without one. It must be stressed, however, that with ant pest control, in many cases it is more of a temporary solution than a permanent one, as ant nests are very resistant to eradication.
