Type of common Ants

Ants are a group of insects, including black ants, red ants, wooden ants and “flying ants”.

  • Ants are social insects and had about 22,000 species and sub-species.
  • Most ants consisting of Queen, King, Reproductive, Soldier and Worker.
  • They come in all shades of black, brown, yellow and red and are nearly blind, depending on the Sensory cells on their antennae for touch and taste.

Reproduction Process

Ants undergo a metamorphosis in four stages: egg, larvae, pupae and adult. The entire process can take up to 60 days from start to finish. An ant can lay 300,000 eggs in a single day; the queen produces 150 million workers in her lifetime.

Once the adult surfaces from a pupae, it’s fully formed and ready to go. Because the queen can churn out thousands of worker ants, the best way to eliminate a colony is to kill the queen where she lives and breeds.

Potential risks they pose

  • Ant bite

    Sting painfully that can easily cut open human skin.

  • Unhygienic

    They feed on a variety of food, penetrate food packages, causing damage and contaminated, thus posing a health risk.

Control Method

Always keep clean.

If ant-feeding bait is used as a control, remove other food so the ants concentrate on the bait and not the food.

Spraying will be carried out in the compound cracks and crevices, skirting boards, refuse collection areas, sewage and drainage systems.
