Fire ants, also known as ‘red ants’ are an aggressive species of ants that can inflict painful stings on humans and pets. Their heads and bodies are coppery brown and they reach 2mm – 6mm in length. They are often found next to or under objects (timber, rocks or bricks) and pots.
Black ants are one of the most common ant species found in Australia. Black worker ants are dark brown and are 3mm – 5mm in length. While the black queen ant is mid-brown and can reach up to 15mm in length. Black ants often nest outdoors in soil, hollowed trees, grass or under the pavement. They can cause structural damage to your property by shifting the foundation and sand.
Bull ants are one of the most aggressive species of ants. Bull ants are black with hints of red on their abdomen. They reach 8mm – 40mm in length and usually nest outside (under the soil, rocks, logs and gardens). They have aggressive behaviour and will often attack humans/pets that are near their nests. Their stings are venomous and can be lethal to humans.
There are often clear signs that your property has an ant infestation. Seeing a large number of ants indoors or outdoors is usually the first sign that you may have a problem. If they are found in areas with food, you should book a pest inspection as soon as possible to avoid the infestation worsening. As ants will often leave a pheromone trail to potential food sources to attract other ants. An ant nest, though difficult to spot is an indicator that you may be dealing with a large number of ants near or in your house. Ant nests often look like a small pile of soil however, some species create nests in walls and dark spots around the property.
