Ants are social insects that live in colonies that may include thousands of individuals. Ants, along with bees and wasps, are members of the order Hymenoptera and undergo complete metamorphosis passing through four stages:
The wingless worker ants are the most common adults seen. However, there are three types of adults:
Nest locations: They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.
Colony size: Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.
Do not DIY spray the ants; improper spraying typically worsens the problem, as some ants are known for “budding,” or creating satellite nests very quickly after sensing danger. Strategic baiting remains the best way to eliminate pharaoh ant infestations. However, using the wrong types of baits may also lead to budding. Trained professionals locate trails and place enticing baits appropriately for effective control.
