Ants are highly social, living in groups creating societies.

Ants are a serious problem not only for domestic spaces and preferably food storage spaces (kitchens), but also for businesses as their entry into storage or dining areas infringes on the business's reputation and questions the hygiene of their premises.

Exterminating them is painful but with proper disinsectization and frequency of applications we will achieve the desired result.

The two species we find in Greece are the pharaoh ant and the black ant.

  • Pharaoh Ant - Monomorium Pharaonis
The Monomorium pharaonis ant (pharaoh ant) is about 2-6mm in size, yellow in color and almost transparent.  We often find them in home kitchens and in hospital wards.

In hospitals, it has been found that it can carry Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, and Clostridium when it has access to soiled sheets and contaminated bandages.

  • Black ant - Lasius Niger
It is the most common ant species in Greece. It is small, 3-5mm in size and it has black color. It creates large colonies. Black ants are usually found on rotten wood, logs or on the ground beneath the bricks and pots. They are rapidly dispersed through the international trade of plants, pots and humus.

They cause problems mainly in the gardens and cause annoyance with their presence around the houses and often go into homes to look for food.

The ant population is fought either with bait gel, which is transported to the nests in order to kill the queens and the workers there. Spraying is also provided to treat the passing ants.
