Ants can enter your property through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food. They leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
Ants can nest just about anywhere in and around your property; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations. Colonies can number up to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened. A colony can live a relatively long life: worker ants can live seven years, and the queen may live as long as 15 years.
Argentine ants kill other insects and invade dwellings and over time, the network of interconnecting colonies could become a massive infestation. Each colony of Argentine ants can contain millions of insects and multiple queens. These colonies can populate entire neighbourhoods.
