Ants are excellent foragers and if a worker ant finds a productive food source it will lay down a pheromone trail so other workers will be able to follow the trail to the food. Resulting in your kitchen being inundated with ants.
During the Summer the ants swarm, which is when thousands of flying ants leave the nest at the same time. This can be quite alarming if the nest is inside a property.
Ants prefer to nest in sandy areas and the sand used to construct paths, drives and patios offer the ideal substrate for ants to nest in.
