The Risk of Ants 

Some ants carry diseases such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Clostridium and Streptococcus, some types can be venomous, and some are harmless. Nevertheless, to have ants inside your property, or even a big ant nest in your garden, can become a nuisance. A type of ant known as carpenter ants can create nests in wood, causing damage by creating tunnels inside it. All ants can also use their mandibles and mouth to pinch the skin, and although ant bites aren’t usually dangerous, they can cause some pain and discomfort, which can lead to further skin irritation and potential infection. Some ants such as the European fire ant is of the Myrmica genus also have stingers that inject you with venom, causing pain and potentially life-threatening issues if you happen to have an allergic reaction. Furthermore, ants can be a food source for other pests, so can attract pests such as spiders and even bats.

Signs of an Ant Infestation 

If you see piles of wood shavings under a wooden surface, it may likely be a sign of a carpenter ant nest. Sometimes you can even hear a rustling noise in the walls, if these ants are in the structure of your building. The most common sign of an ant infestation is the sheer number of ants you will see. You may notice more and more ants coming into your home than you would normally expect, which build to ant trails as they move as a colony. Fire ants can be seen in some parts of England; you can identify this species by its dark-coloured head and red body.
