Garden ants usually nest outdoors in sandy soils but travel widely to look for food. They are particularly attracted to sweet substances. They become a pest when they come into our homes looking for food. Garden ants become a nuisance because as they forage, they walk across unpleasant and dirty areas during their search for food.
Garden ants are normally controlled using residual insecticides in spray and dust form. In homes we would usually treat the kitchen and garden areas where the ants may have originally entered the premises.
