Did you know?
- For every human in the world there are one million ants.
- Ants never sleep
Ants can be pests when:
- They build nests in walls and foundations, or indoors in potted plants, enclosed areas, and even in cavities in toilets and sinks.
- The Aphaenogaster ant can form large numbers of chambers close to the surface, causing serious problems when found in golf courses or some types of pastures or crops.
- A few species will occasionally attack electrical wiring, apparently being attracted to either the insulation or the magnetic fields produced by the wires.
- Ants often move nest sites when disturbed, or with a change in food supply. This can make control and removal difficult. They may leave for short periods only to return later when a new food source is located and they can recolonise from nearby nests very quickly.
- The Black House Ant is a scavenger and will spread disease around your kitchen.
- The Pharoah Ant is yellow-brown in colour and very difficult to control.
- The Bulldog Ant is found mostly outdoors and inflicts a very painful sting.
- The best way to ant-proof your home is to
- Cover food
- Clean up any food or liquid spills
- Remove any food debris under food appliances
- Ensure that garbage bins are sealed
- Cover and enclose compost bins or piles
- Remove uneaten pet food
- Seal cracks and crevices in door and window frames
