Ants

  • More than 20 varieties of ants invade homes throughout the United States during the warm months of the year. Worldwide, there are more than 12,000 species, but only a small number cause problems.
  • Destructive ants include fire and carpenter ants. Others ant types include the honey, Pharaoh, house, Argentine, and the thief ant.
  • All ants share one trait: They’re unsightly and contaminate food.
  • Ants range in color from red to black.
  • Fire ants are vicious, unrelenting predators with a powerful, painful sting.
  • At least 32 deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to severe allergic reactions to fire ant stings.
  • Millions of dollars are spent each year eradicating fire ants alone.
  • Carpenter ants range in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to three-quarters inch for a queen.
  • A carpenter ant colony can have a long life span. Each colony is founded by a single fertilized queen that establishes a nesting site in a cavity in wood.
  • A carpenter ant colony does not reach maturity until it contains 2,000 or more workers, which can take three to six years.
