Ants can be a real headache if they build their nests inside or near your home. Most common species found in Australia, like Black Ants, Garden Ants, and Carpenter Ants, are not known to carry especially harmful diseases. But the problem is that you can’t be sure where they have been foraging for food outdoors. So it’s reasonable not to want them crawling inside your kitchen cabinets.
Ants travel in wide ranges, looking for food to bring back to their colony, following the trails left behind by fellow worker ants, becoming a nuisance to anyone with sweet and sugary stuff. You can easily recognize their infestations by piles of dirt and mud around small holes in ground and near the corners of your wall.
Considering the fact that most ants prefer to live in warm and sunny habitats, our country is a perfect place for them to thrive. These pests are present almost everywhere. There are more than 15,000 species of ants in the world that are known to us. And out of those 15,000, Australia is home to more than 1,500 species.
Some of The Most Common Ant Species Found in Both Urban and Rural Areas of Australia are:
- Bull or Bulldog Ants
- Carpenter Ants
- Common Black House Ants
- Garden Ants
- Argentine Ants
- Pavement Ants
- Ghost Ants
- Funnel Ants
- Coastal Brown Ants
- Pharaoh Ants
