What are Ants?

They are small, highly social insects that are pretty much everywhere in the world. While there are different species, there’s hardly a country in the world that doesn’t have them around.

Today, there are over 12,00 species of ants in the world. They are highly interesting animals, thanks in no small part to their social nature and ability to carry multiple times their weight. Pest control services can help eliminate an ant problem and kill ants permanently.

Carpenter Ants

Usually found just about anywhere. They’re among the most popular type in Australia.

Most range between 3.5mm to 13mm in length. They’re also black, with some having combinations of red and black bodies. A carpenter ant comes with 12 segmented antennae, but no club. They also don’t have stingers.

You can usually find them in walls, attics, or rotting wood. Interestingly, they don’t eat wood – they just borrow through it. Instead, carpenter ants eat anything, from honeydew, meats, sweets, and even other insects. Although they might bite if you try to pick them up, their bites are largely painless. But, they emit a terrible smell when stepped on or crushed.

Argentine Ants

Argentine ants measure between 2.2mm and 2.8mm, and they come with just one node. You can usually find them in light or dark brown colors. Most tend to stay outdoors. You can find them in the open – especially in the summer. But, they also tend to stay in wall voids and insulation materials if indoors. They eat different things, from sweets and pet food to other insects and meat.

They are winged, and they tend to live in very large colonies. Workers for garden ants can be as large as 5mm. As expected, they are black – but, some can be dark brown as well.

The black garden ant has different diets, although they are especially fond of honeydew.

Fire Ants

Another popular type, fire ants are especially famous for their painful bite. They are very common as well, and you can usually find them in outdoor habitats like shrubbery and gardens.

In cold months, they move to areas with warmth and plenty of moisture. Most stay between 4mm and 5mm in length. They come with two nodes, and they can vary in color – although most of them are reddish-brown.

Dangers of Ants

Ants can be quite dangerous and annual ant pest control is recommended. Although the degree of danger and exposure can vary based on where you are. Take carpenter ants for example. These ants are really good at destroying items and furniture. Carpenter ants can invade your home or office building, and they’ll immediately get to work destroying your wood fixtures.

Then, there are house ants. These ones don’t spread any disease, and they don’t even bite or sting. But, when you step on one or crush it, you’re immediately greeted by this terrible smell that just fills the entire place. If you’re really sensitive or you have respiratory issues, these aren’t the type of creatures you want around you.

You could also notice pavement ants, which tend to prefer living around your pavement-like structures – whether it’s a foundation, a sidewalk, a concrete slab, etc. They have stingers, but rarely sting people. However, they can also crawl through filth and dirty spaces and end up depositing harmful substances on your food and other surfaces.

Most ants leave trails of sawdust around the home. This can be inside and outside, and the trails can be on just about anything.

Hollow sounds in wood beams and floorboards can also point to an ant infestation. You know you’ve got an ant infestation when your wooden fixtures start crumbling. Other signs include discarded wings, piles of dust, and sawdust trails.

You may also notice discarded wings and rustling noises within the walls of your house.
