Common UK Ant Species

With over 11,000 known ant species worldwide, the UK is home to around 50 varieties. Here are some of the most common ones:

Common Black Ant

Often found in homes searching for food, they also nest in patios, garden borders, and lawns. Colonies can reach up to 15,000 individuals, drawn to sugary substances.

Yellow Meadow Ant

These ants have an orange tinge and build large mounds in fields and meadows. They pose no danger to humans as they mostly stay underground.

Red Wood Ant

Found predominantly in woods and forests, the Red Wood Ant is an aggressive species. If their nest is disturbed, these ants will not hesitate to defend themselves.

Myrmica (Fire Ants)

This group includes several subspecies, all characterized by their red color and aggressive nature. Fire ants are known for their painful sting, which can cause a burning sensation and sometimes severe allergic reactions.

Pavement Ant:

Commonly found between paving slabs, these ants have a nasty bite and are aggressive if disturbed. They are found mainly in the Midlands and southern England.

Slave-Maker Ant

These ants raid other ant nests, killing queens and taking control of workers. They are the largest UK ant species and spray formic acid as a defense.

Dealing with Ant Infestations

The black ant or garden ant is the most common species encountered. While harmless, they can become a nuisance, especially when they discover food sources in your home. Here are some basic tips to help control ants:

  • Keep Surfaces Clean: Ants are drawn to sweet foods. Clean work surfaces to remove any sugary residue.
  • Seal Entry Points: If you can trace where ants are entering, blocking the hole can be effective.
  • Safe Pest Control: Avoid using dangerous off-the-shelf products if you have pets or children.
  • Proper Food Storage: Store food in airtight containers and keep it in fridges or high cupboards.
  • Clean Floors Regularly: Regular vacuuming and sweeping, especially under appliances, can remove potential food sources for ants.
  • Pet Food Management: Clean up any residue from pet food bowls promptly.
  • Seal Bins: Ensure bins are properly sealed to prevent ants from accessing leftovers.
