There are about 3000 species of ants. Ants are social insects that live in a permanent nest which can be found in soil, wood and rocks. You can often observe them around foundations, walls, roof voids, kitchens, lawns, gardens and also in the wood of decaying trees and rockeries.
The queen regulates the colony. Once it has mated with a male (after which the male usually dies) the queen begins egg laying. The eggs that are fertilized become females and those that are not fertilized become males. Their eggs are mostly small.
Once the larva hatch they are fed by the adults. After several months of sufficient feeding and several malts the larva pupates. A few hours or even a day may be required for the process of cu tide-hardening and darkening. It takes six weeks for the ant to develop from the egg stage to adulthood, depending on the species. At certain times of the year large numbers of winged male and reproductive females are produces.
They usually swarm in a colonizing fight. During which they mate and if successful the female will drop her wings and find am appropriate nesting site in which to start a new colony. The other method of colonizing is called budding off. This is mainly used by the Argentine ants and pharaoh ants. What this involves is the ants mate in the nest and develops a large numbers of females to reproduce. Then with some of the females already fertilized they leave the nest along with a number of workers, to form a new colony.
They more or less live in a permanent nest but in extreme conditions a change of nest is not uncommon. Worker ants forage for food from the nest. Many do this by traveling in fairly well defined trails, once a food source has been established. To establish a trail, a trail they may use landmarks, orientation or lying down of a scented trail.
Ants are considered pest in and around buildings. The small mounds resulting from their excavations may be considered unsightly. Sometimes there excavations may cause cracks in their path. Ants can consume and damage some plants and seedlings. The trails of the ants themselves and swarming may not only be considered unsightly but also disturbing to some people.
Ants are not only a threat because they can bite or sting humans but they can also pose a health risk.
