There are more than 12,000 species of ants in the world!
Facts about Ants
Ant infestations are generally caused by poor hygiene such as leaving food residue on a table, floor or by leaving dirty dishes in the sink. Ant invasions may start when a small group of ants signal to their colony the location of such food residues mentioned previously. This can become a big problem once a colony builds a nest in your house.
Ants can build their nest in your house or around it. Their nest can be found in your walls or under the foundations. They can enter your house through tiny cracks and they can change places hurriedly once they sense danger.
The life cycle of ants starts from an egg, larvae, pupae, from there they grow into an adult. The life cycle completes after weeks or months depending on the species and environmental dynamics. In fact, ant colonies tend to live for a long time. The workers can live for around 7 years and the queen can live for 15 years.
