Our Ant Species section has a new article – Lasius niger! Commonly known as the Black garden ant, the Lasius niger species is common in nature as well as in the city. It is sometimes referred to as the “pavement ant”. It is a very adaptable species and one often finds them scurrying through houses looking for food. Some considers them pests while we.. well, we like them.
We’re slowly expanding our descriptions of the most common ant species throughout Europe and North America, starting with this favourite ant of mine.
