Ant Control Edinburgh:
Ant Control Edinburgh – Black Ant worker ant’s are about 3 millimetres (0.12 in) long and can easily squeeze through crack’s and hole’s no more than 1 millimetre (0.039 in) in size. Queen’s are two to four time’s the length of worker’s.
These ant’s will set up quarter’s in the ground, in crack’s in concrete wall’s, in space’s between board’s and timber’s, even among belonging’s in human dwelling’s.
In natural area’s, they generally nest shallowly in loose leaf litter or beneath small stone’s, due to their poor ability to dig deeper nest’s. However, if a deeper nesting ant species abandon’s their nest, Argentine ant’s colonies will readily take over the space.
The seasonal low occurs in mid-winter, when 90% of a representative colony consisted of workers and the remainder of queens, and no reproductive activity and minimal birthing.
Eggs are produced in late-winter, nearly all of which hatch into sexual forms by May. Mating occurs after the females emerge. Worker production increase steadily from mid-March to October.
Argentine ants are a common household pest, often entering structures in search of food or water (particularly during dry or hot weather), or to escape flooded nests during periods of heavy rainfall.
When they invade a kitchen, it is not uncommon to see two or three queens foraging along with the workers. Eliminating a single queen does not stop the colony’s ability to breed.
