Argentine Ants In Las Vegas and Henderson NV
Argentine ants are believed to have entered the United States through boxes carrying coffee and sugar from Argentina during the later 19th century. Ever since then they have multiplied across California and other southern parts of the United States. Unfortunately for residents of that area, Argentine ants are an extra pest they have to deal with because of the nature of early importing that sometimes got us more than we bargained for.
Argentine Ants Are Resilient
These ants vary in color. While some are a dull red or brown color, others can also have a yellow tinge to them. Worker ants are roughly .12” in size whereas queens are four times that size. While killing the work ants might seem as a victory to home owners, it is not one at all since queens continue to produce workers at a fast pace.
Supercolonies of argentine ants can have hundreds of queens, along with separated nests, so it makes it hard for home owners and inexperienced pest control companies to remove them. However, you don’t have to worry about the job not getting right when you hire us. Here at Ace Pest Control we have over a decade of experience with Argentine Ants and are ready to tackle any challenge that a colony or a supercolony of them entail.
Information on Argentine Ants and Their Habits
These ants like nesting in organic materials that are decomposing, such as rotting wood and other structures. They are usually attracted to homes during storms or droughts since they provide the shelter or water necessary to sustain life.
Such ants live up to five months and they feed on sugary contents such as fruit juice. Their mating takes place in nests, so it’s unlikely you will ever see an Argentine Ant with wings. However, even when not mating these ants are aggressive. Part of their aggression is good since they will eradicate other ants and eat other pests like cockroaches and termites. Their aggression is not good when it comes to them beginning to dominate your home and thrive in it though.
When Argentine Ants take up a home as their residence, they mean business. These ants will nest in between walls and begin foraging for food and mating immediately. Fortunately, we mean business here at Ace Pest Control as well.
