Living in NSW means we are more likely to face drought and extreme heat. Which means ants will look for sources of food and water inside your house or workplace. Ants can travel long distances from their colony to seek food. Some may even end up starting a new nest in and around your property.
Ant Species we will find in Australia:
White-footed black house ants (Technomyrmex albipes) are the common black house ants.
Black house ant (Ochetellus glaber) is an ant species which normally makes their nests in the ground or in decaying wood.
Coastal brown ants (Pheidole megacephala) is an ant species usually found in buildings and in piles of rocks, soil and debris.
Brown house ants (Doleromyrma darwiniana) are ants that have similar nesting habits as coastal brown ants.
Pharaoh’s ants (Monomorium pharaonis) is a rare ant species in Australia but is very common in Europe and USA.
Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) can be very aggressive and can drive out other ants and other animals from their living or nesting areas.
Odorous ants (Tapinoma minutum) are ants that make their nests inside buildings and in wall voids.
Singapore ants (Monomorium destructor) have a powerful bite and sting.
