Garden Ant

Description

Ants are normal inhabitants of gardens and outdoor spaces, but can occur in dwellings in large numbers. Garden ants are 4mm in length (3/16th of an inch) and are a very dark brown, almost black, colour.

If you have ants try using an powder like Nippon. Lightly sprinkle round the edges. It can take a few days for ants to take the powder back to the nest.

Control measures
