Black Garden Ant Lasius niger

Description

Black Garden Ants are pests that can be found all around the worls. With colonies with up to 40,000 and a queen that can live up to 15 days, It can become a very obnoxious pest if found near a residential home.

These ants can destroy gardens, eat fruits, and invade inside homes. This is because they like exploring their surroundings (specially in the summer) in efforts to increase the supply of food of the queen and her young.

Normal ways to control these ants are through baits and spays sold at Garden and Home stores, cleaning carpets with baking soda and other natural methods, or by preventing their invasion by not leaving food uncovered.

Description

I had a swarm of flying ants at the side of my house and at the front of my house. I couldn't believe the amount of how many there were. Some were swarmed on the brick wall, some on the rocks and what seemed like a colony of them on parts of my grass. It was hard to take these pictures as well because many had been flying around the area as well.

This ant was on my leg pulling off her wings. She must be looking for a place to set up shop! And yes, the ID is a complete guess...
