Ants live in colonies which will be up to a million strong, all of which will live together in one nest. There are a huge number of species of ants, most of which are tropical.

In order to deal with small numbers of ants, DIY products may be appropriate, however for large colonies, particularly pharaoh ants which may be living in multiple colonies professional pest control would be advised, as if treated inappropriately the problem will be escalated.
