Ants are social insects. Their nests or colonies can be found indoors and out, although some species have
preferred nesting sites. A nest contains one or more queen ants laying eggs and being cared for by worker ants.
Worker ants-- sterile or non-reproductive female ants--tend the queen and brood (eggs, larvae and pupae) and
forage for food. Foraging ants can invade households from colonies outdoors.

Nests often can be located by following “trails” of foraging ants. Indoors, ants nest almost anywhere. For instance,
Pharaoh ants readily nest in attics, appliances, linens, heating ducts, wall voids and light switches or fixtures.
Killing foraging ants rarely solves an ant problem in the home because the colony remains unaffected.

During certain times of the year, most species produce reproductives, winged male and female ants that leave the
nest to mate and establish new colonies. When winged ants swarm in the home, their colony is likely to be
located somewhere inside. Winged ants can be distinguished from termites by three characteristics



















Ant colonies do not nest in permanent locations; frequently entire colonies move from one nesting site to
another almost overnight. Particularly during very wet or abnormally hot and dry weather, ant colonies whose
nesting areas are flooded or lack food and water often migrate indoors.

Worker ants foraging for food and water become a concern when they infest food or other items in the home.
Although most ants consume a wide variety of foods (they are omnivorous), certain species prefer some types of
foods and some even change their preferences over time (Table 1). Species of ants that sting, such as red imported
fire ants, can endanger young children, confined pets and bedridden people.

Foraging workers of some ants establish temporary chemical (pheromone) trails that help other ants find food and
water. These species can “recruit” other ants to a resource quickly and in high numbers. Food is brought back to
the colony and fed communally among the other members of the colony.
