black garden ant definition and meaning

What is a "black garden ant"?

A black garden ant, a common sight in many outdoor spaces, is a small insect known for its black coloration and organized social structure. These ants establish colonies that can be found in gardens, lawns, and other outdoor environments, often constructing intricate nests in the soil or under rocks. They are omnivorous and feed on a variety of food sources, including insects, plant materials, and sugary substances. Black garden ants are diligent foragers and can form well-defined foraging trails as they search for food. While their presence in gardens can be beneficial in terms of soil aeration and pest control, they can also become a nuisance if they invade homes in search of food and water.
