Ants can be a particular nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black House ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, but the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside, so you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards.

  • Track down where they are coming in and seal off the entry point
  • Small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.
  • Clear up any sticky residues on worktops, because ants are attracted to sweet things
  • Cover up any foodstuffs which could be a food source for ants
