To rid yourself from ants and keep them under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.
Ants are social insects that belong to the same biological order as bees and wasps. Each ant is a member of a highly organised colony which can be as large as millions of insects. Inside one single nest, there are workers, soldiers, drones and queens and colonies of ants can occupy and use a wide area of land to support them.
There are about almost 12,000 known ant species, most of which are tropical. Ants are extremely social creatures and their ability to adapt to most environments has enabled them to live on almost every landmass on Earth.
