In Fife the usual Ant species that we come across is The Black or Garden Ant.
Black Ants are not regarded as a threat to public health, they do however pass through unhygenic surfaces in the search for food.
Contamination of work surfaces in kitchens and food preparation areas can be caused. The Law states that food and drink must be fit for human consumption. Contamination can happen very easily when food and utensils are left lying around NOTE: Ants have the potential to become a health hazard.

ANTS IN YOUR PANTS! – Examples
For most people, insects on their premises gives a bad impression. Wither its Mum having friends round for coffee and cake or potential clients helping themselves to a cup of tea.
A large Solicitors in Dunfermline had an ant problem, staff frequently ate their lunch and had tea breaks at their desk. This is a NO! NO! We attended and dealt with the infestation quickly, giving advice to staff and office managers that this practise needed to stop. Food source away, no more ants… job done!
After being called out to a supermarket office admin area, where the accountant had fresh orange juice in her desk in a glass. Slight spillage was a regular occurence, just rings off the base of the glass but enough to feed the ants (the cleaners wipe the desk down she said) not with bacterial wipes to which I wiped the surface and produced a rather grey wet wipe caused by sugar residue. My point being that the ants don`t need much to be attracted to your desk top, wither its crumbs or juice/coffee rings.
