Ants

Acrobat Ant

Acrobat ants are slightly more than 1/8 inch inches. They differ from yellow to brown in dark brown color, and heart-shaped stomach is usually deeper than the rest of the body. To see a pair of particles on the rear of the middle section of the body requires magnitude, which helps in identifying this ant with other things. The habit of the workers when they become disturbed to carry their stomach in the air, it is probably the best way to identify the species.

Acrobat Ants can nest both inside and outside the house and there is a common insect in Ontario. Outdoor nests often die and are in wood decay such as logs, stumps, limbs of dead trees, caves of wood and hollow tree, they can have nests in moist soil under the leaf litter or rocks. Small activists entered the buildings easily through the cracks around the windows and doors and other openings. Trails of workers can be seen moving between nests and food sources. Acrobat ants dine on different types of food items, including various varieties and desserts.

When Acrobat Ants are nested inside the house, they are usually in a wood or cavity, which are moist with water from the leaks. They can also make nests in foam insulating boards or methings. As they dig bigger galleries used in the form of nest sites, a froth can be deposited near the nesting area.

Like all ants, acrobat ants are called feathers, reproduction (men and women), which are called swaras. These sexually-evolving adults come out of an established colony, spreading and starting a new colony. Roads are not harmful, but they can be the first signs of nuisance. There is no special treatment for vacuuming or rides outside of cleanliness.

Carpenter Ant

Carpenter ants are very abundant in Ontario, and common insects in homes and other buildings are the most common carpenter ants, large-known black ants, which are a half inch or more in length and more shiny black colored carvings of ants, though , Are small in size as a quarter inch and red-brown or two-vowels are a consistent feature of all carpentry ants, the goal of scales is easily outlined. When seen from the side.

The carpenter does not eat ants of wood, but in turn, their nests are constructed in wood such as hollow trees, stumps, logs, posts, landscaping rhythms, and wood and houses and other structures. A mutual chain of nesting tunnels and cavities is made by chewing. The wood is removed as a thick brown-like material, which is pushed through the nest. The sawdust may include dead ants, parts of insects and other debris such as other food.

Carpenters are found inside , usually in the winter, they come nesting somewhere inside the house. Ants can be found inside the house during the spring or summer, the invaders are roaming outside or they can be nesting nests in the walls or in the ceiling. Although there is no easy way to determine the source, but it pays to check carefully before any treatment.

Finding the source of carpenter ants is important because it is difficult. It is especially difficult if only a few ants are seen at a time. Our best suggestion is that you spend time looking at the ants to see if you can detect a pattern of movement. Carpentry in the spring and summer are more active in the ants at night and after the sunset there are comments, indicating the source with the flashlight on the outside and inside the house. The presence of the rag (Frass) is an important clue to detect ant nests.

Field Ant

The length of field ants ranges between 4 to 8 mm and one of the largest ants. Their colors are known as a combination of yellow, red, black or red and black

They make their nests in lawns, gardens, farms and gardens. These relatively passive ants are sometimes mistaken for fire ants. While they do not sting, field ants will bite when disturbed and some possess the ability to spray formic acid so the bite can be painful. Side effects resulting from a bite are usually mild in nature and typically subside within an hour, but you should consult a medical expert if you feel any lingering symptoms.

Their most common food source is honeydew; a component obtained from insects such as aphids. They will also feed on other insects and meat.

Fire Ant

Fire ants range from 1.6 to 5 mm in size and appear reddish in colour. These ants typically nest in the ground and are very aggressive by nature, stinging anyone and anything they view as a threat. Being stung can be painful and the affected person should seek medical attention if they experience any severe reaction to the sting.

Fire ants feed on both animal and insects as well as vegetable food sources. They favour warm, sunny conditions and prefer dry fields over the woods and other shady areas.

On average, it only takes a month for an ant to grow from an egg to an adult. Their colonies can contain several thousand ants and at least one queen.

Odorous (House) Ant

The intestinal house ants, which are sometimes called aromatic ants, are between 2.4 to 3.3 mm length and near dark brown or black bodies. They will nest both inside and outside the house. Inside the house, their colonies live in well-hidden places such as under carpets, under the floor or in the edges of the wall. Outdoors, they follow a similar pattern, put their nests under the soil, the mice and the rocks.

The food that is eaten by the ants of the house is based on their environment. When on the road, they prefer to dream from Feds and other feeding insects. Almost any type of food is eaten in the ants at home – for a few names like meat, dairy products, pastries and vegetables. Ants from simple house develops from egg to adult usually within 34 to 83 days.

Pavement Ant

A pavement ant that shows two node dituoles, pair of particles on the chest, and grooves on the head and thorax (the actual size is approximately 3 mm).

The pavement ants are in short colors for about 1 / 8th inches long and dark brown. They are found throughout Canada and are a major insect in Ontario. This ant is named after pedestrians and nesting under the driveway and breaks the dirt surrounded by a nest in a tank above the sidewalk. In addition to nesting under the sidewalk, the colonies of pavement ants can be found under other items on top of the ground including stones, logs, boards, bricks and patio blocks. They can be nested in the nest in the nests, walls, under the floor or under insulation in the walls of the building or underground beds and nesting walls.

Pavement ants will be fed on a wide variety of different food items, although the greasy and sweet ingredients are given priority. Workers can feed the ants for up to 30 feet of colonies and can set trails easily from food sources.

Pharaoh Ant

Pharaoh ants are one of the smallest ants in length up to 2 mm in length and they are yellow with a black mark on their stomach.

These ants have become a serious problem in nearly every type of building. They live in nests in warm, moist areas, which are usually well hidden. At home, they will search behind the baseboard, under the carpets, the cabinet noise and even inside the curtain rod.

These ants feed on proteins, desserts and fats.

It takes a little more than a month for the development of a Firoz ant for an adult from the egg. They have many queens and are able to move their colonies from place to place when they are disturbed.

Thief Ant

Thieves ants are quite small, which are about 1.5 to 2.2 mm in length. Their color varies from yellow to brown color. Due to their size and color, sometimes there are mistaken identities in the form of phiro ants. A common method of distinguishing between the two is that the thieves have antennae 10 sections ending with two segmented clubs, while the 12-segment antenna antsa ends with a three-segment club.

Nests of thieves ant are found in different types of exterior and indoor areas. Outdoors, they are nesting in wood mud and rotating under rocks. When these ants enter the buildings, they make trails from food sources to their nests. Inside the house, these nests are located in small, hidden places, such as cracks and cupboards

These ants get food on protein rich in protein and it becomes smoother, like crazy, meat, cheese, peanut butter and sweets.

To grow in a rock ant, it may take up to 50 days for the egg kept by the queen for a few months.
