ANTS: SMALL CREATURES WITH BIG IDEAS

Ants entering houses looking for food are a common nuisance and are one of the most abundant insect pests. Although there are several thousand species of ants of which a very few of them can be classified as pests may be conveniently divided into two categories i.e. which nest outside and invade dwellings usually in search of food. Different ants have different behaviour patterns but once they take up residence in home or garden, they quickly reproduce, eat all the available food sources and can be very difficult to dislodge.

POSSIBLE SIGNS

  • Live insects.

  • Pathways in and out of your premises.

  • Small heaps of earth or dirt indicating nest sites.
     

POTENTIAL HARM

  • Can contaminate foodstuff

  • Can destroy vegetation in the house and garden.

  • Eat all the available food sources.

  • Difficult to dislodge once they take up residence in your home.
