The ant

The ant is a fascinating creature in terms of the social aspects that rule ant colonies.

They are extremely good at organising themselves, and by leading a coordinated co-existence over millions of years, they have now evolved to the point where they are able to successfully create huge colonies consisting of thousands of individuals, all with their own carefully assigned tasks.

5 quick questions about ants

Baking powder (soda), cinnamon and other types of household remedies can be used against ants, but it will only keep them away for a short period of time. The ants’ paths indoors can be disrupted using these methods, but if their source of food is not removed, the ants will simply find another way in.

A lesser known and gentler technique is to place large pots with sphagnum upside down on top of their main pathways on the lawn. The ants will seek the pots, and after about 3 weeks, a large amount of the colony will be located in the pots which can then be disposed of. Following this, boiling water can be dumped on the lawn to fight the rest of the colony.

To remove ants from a cavity wall or eaves of the house is particularly difficult. An effective technique would be to seek professional help and have them sprinkle insecticides around which the individual ant will then bring back to the colony.

Ants are multiannual and they spend the winter in their nests in deep, underground passages. They will search for environments that are frost-free, as frost in their nest will kill them.


Ants eat all types of food, especially sugary foods. They also drink, usually dew, but they also receive fluids through the foods they consume.

Ants in general

In this section, we will look at the general population of ants and what they are like.

They live in our gardens and mainly feed on sweet fluids they collect in the garden. They may also drain greenflies of a sweet fluid that is particular to this type of louse which the ant likes. It may sound somewhat bizarre, but there have been examples of ants keeping greenflies as pets. Ants can often be seen climbing up the stems of leaves. What they are doing is harvesting the sweet fluids that the greenflies contain. This almost symbiotic existence between ants and greenflies means that the ants are actually protecting the greenflies from predators such as ladybirds. Should a ladybird attempt to eat the greenflies, the ants will attack it en masse.

It is mainly the female ant that works for the colony and, therefore, also the female that collects food. The food is carried back to the ant nest which is underneath the house or terrace. It is not uncommon to find close to 8000 ants in an anthill or an ant colony. Ants live in social societies, small as well as large.

Near our homes they typically live underneath paving or along the foundation. Unfortunately for us, worker ants are incredibly good at finding their way into our homes. Ants have a very sweet tooth, so they will be attracted to anything sweet. They can appear in hundreds and really create a nuisance for the residents of the house. The queen ant spends the winter, for example, underneath the foundation of the house.

The black garden ant is the most common species of ant found in Denmark. It is found by the thousands in our gardens, and in the natural surroundings around us. Worker ants are usually 4-5 mm in length, while queen ants can measure up to 15 mm in length.

In early spring, the ant emerges from its subterranean nest and starts searching for food. If you have ants in your house, you will usually notice spots where materials from the foundation or notches in tiles have been dug out. This is one of the best times of year to start your pest control efforts, as the ants will be hungry and will transport food, no matter what it is, down into the nest where activities are beginning again after the winter.

Some people claim that ants can even undermine a house, but this is only a myth.

The regular black garden ant, which is what we are talking about here, cannot undermine a house, although it is not unusual for ants to dig themselves in underneath the foundation of the house. Here, they dig passages that may partly collapse but will subsequently be restored by other ants.

In regard to undermining an entire house, ants are simply too small to create the network of passages that would be required underneath a foundation to present any risk to the house.

“Ants dig many passages, but do not pose a risk”

However, there are always exceptions to the rule. But it is incredibly rare that houses collapse into ant passageways. The problem occurs when floors or terraces sink, which would certainly be ranked as a K1 on any surveyor´s report on a home.

There are very few examples of ants that have dug a nest and used it for decades. However, in those that do exist, the passages may be several meters deep.

One of the worst examples in history concerns ants that extended the same nest over a period of 100 years. Here, an excavator was needed to remove the entire ants’ nest after all the ants had been exterminated by a powerful insecticide. This enormous ants’ nest contained millions of ants and covered a huge area. However, it is extremely rare for an ant colony to remain active for so many years, so the idea of it ever posing an actual threat to humans is totally unrealistic.

The regular ants in the garden are not a nuisance to properties, or the like. Ants, however, can be a nuisance when they get into food or into the house, which can be very annoying. The good news is that these ants can be controlled.

Avoid using ant poison in areas where food is prepared or cooked.

Most of the ants that then enter the house can be controlled with ant killer dusting powder that you can buy at DIY centres. Remember NOT to use insecticides in places where you store or handle foods.

If the ants are located where you store or handle food, you need to treat them with an insecticide that is approved. It does exist, but the effect is not very long-lasting. The poison can be distributed a number of times. However, it is important not to use stronger insecticides against ants on things like the kitchen counter.

Remember that this where you and your family eat and prepare food – on the kitchen counter.

Environmentally friendly ant control

A good alternative to the traditional method of pest control is a more environmentally friendly approach. In essence, it involves improving the security of your home. Environmentally friendly ant control may include effectively sealing off holes and cracks left by ants.

This may require removing panels and carpets to access the ant holes in the concrete. Once this is done, you can use special tubes to fill the small tunnels created by ants with a lightweight and liquid cement. While ants may attempt to dig again, you can protect your home from ants using this method.
