Ants are one of the most common insects seen in various parts of the worlds. There are different types of ants across the world. Some of these are:
1. Argentine Ants
As the name suggests, this specie of ants have their origins in Argentina but have now grown in bigger populations in other parts of the world such as in America and Australia. These ants enter the house while looking for shelter and traces of food. They have a triangular shape of the head and are shiny black to various shades of brown in appearance.
2. Field Ants
This specie of ants is usually found outdoors in open fields. They are larger in size as compared to others and vary from approximately four to nine millimeters in terms of length. Their home is often found in the soil in the open areas. They are less harmful than other ants as they do not enter the house and infiltrate food.
3. Fire Ants
As the name suggests, this specie of ants comes in various shades of red and have two nodes situated in the middle of the thorax and the abdomen. These ants are known to sting whatever comes in their way and this in turn causes pain and irritation on the skin. Thus, it is important for pest control in north Brisbane and other areas.
