Black Ants are a nuisance pest but not a risk to human health. They do not have a sting, their jaws are their main defence, but they are not strong enough to break a persons skin. Black Ants eat insects and sugary substances such as nectar and rotting fruit. A Black Ant colony contains only one queen and 4,000 to 7,000 workers, a larger colony can contain 15,000 workers. On hot days between June and September males and females from many colonies take flight and mate. The new queens then lose their wings and burrow underground and the cycle starts again.
Although these small insects are harmless to humans, their presence indoors is considered as a nuisance pest that can quickly invade homes and commercial properties. We service both domestic and commercial properties that contact us asking how to get rid of ants. None wants to see these
Little insects crawling over food and surfaces, and can be damaging to a business' reputation.
