The Invasive Garden Ant (Lasius Neglectus) has been found in Eastbourne. These ants were first discovered in Gloucestershire in 2009. They are originally from Turkey and although smaller than our native ant, they build super colonies with many queens. They are not aggressive and do not sting but pose a threat to our native species and ecosystems. Have a read of this article for more info.
