Okay, thanks for that. Might require more drastic action but will try some Boots spray first tonight.

Never spray tropical ants, it just causes them to disperse into even more colonies. Maxforce is the quickest way to wipe out insects. Although if you live in a block of flats it won't be long before they're back again. Unless the whole block is treated it's a losing battle. We had ghost ants and I had to get my brother in NY to send me a supply of Maxforce baits as the stuff you can get in the UK is too weak and can take up to a year. Maxforce did the job in a few days.
I think it's the large sacks of rice and suchlike that some people buy that introduces them to flats.

You could try Southwark Council pest control. What type of pest are they?
