Ants! ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿœ

You either love them or hate them!

Did you know.......

๐Ÿœ - The Black Garden Ant has a life expectancy of 4 years!

๐Ÿœ - Ants nests can have up to 40,000 workers, but the average size is 4,000โ€“7,000 ants.

๐Ÿœ - The colony has a single queen which can live up to 15 years, and it has been claimed that some have lived for 30 years.

๐Ÿœ - In the early stages of a colony there can two or three queens in the nest. They will tolerate each other until the first workers come, then it is most likely they will fight until one queen remains.

๐Ÿœ - After a queen mates, she removes her wings and eats her wing muscles as food over the winter.

๐Ÿœ - The male ants are 3.5โ€“4.5 mm long and are only produced by Queens for mating.

Ant Treatment carried out at our clients site over in Stockport, Greater Manchester this afternoon. Flying Ants were also identified - well before their starting their new colonys in July-August.
