The most common ant is the Black Garden Ant which is attracted by sweet food sources which they take back to their nest.

About the Black Garden Ant
Black Ants are the only ants which are indigenous to the UK which have the tendency of entering houses.
The workers are very active in foraging and they will feed on any food substance although they ideally prefer sweet substances.
Although they do not pose any serious health risk, their activity is a nuisance to homeowners and they can easily contaminate food. However, the vast majority of homeowners will find an ant infestation very distressing and one for using a professional for.
The Black Ants will also occasionally nest indoors if the conditions are suitable, usually in the insulation layers below your property.
During the exploration season when the queen and their males are looking for a new home you might also find them inside your home.
Black Ant Prevention
Homeowners should consider working with a licensed pest professional to employ a preventative pest management plan.
There are also a few things that can be done around the property to prevent a little black ant infestation.
Homeowners should seal cracks and crevices in exterior walls with a silicone-based caulk, ensure firewood is stored at least 20 feet away from the home, and keep shrubbery trimmed. Location of the nest is also important. While it can be difficult to see these ants due to their small size, their nests can be found by following the trial of workers back to the colony.
