Tropical fire ants can cause pain and swelling through their venomous bites. Some ants can spread diseases since they carry harmful bacteria on them, such as E. coli, Shigella, Streptococcus, Salmonellaand Staphylococcus. Ants generally destroy house hold goods. Ants feed on stored food materials. Ants are also responsible for causing great material loss to humans, both in residential and commercial areas.
Some ant species can cause damage to human habitat by destroying the wooden structures in the house. These are Carpenter ants. Red Fire ants can damage electrical appliances as they gather around such places where electric current flows.
Ants are a domestic nuisance when they crawl free over the food, furniture, bed and on the floor, in a human house.
Similarly, other common methods include the application of soap and water or the mixture of vinegar and water on their trail that eventually kills ants using the same trail.

Ants are a type of insects which are capable of adapting any kind of environment and so they can live in any atmosphere. It has been estimated by E.O. Wilson that the total biomass of all the ants in the world is approximately equal to the total biomass of the entire human race. That is, there are approximately one million ants for every human on earth.
Ants can multiply rapidly and their presence in human habitations is often problematic. Ant problem should not be neglected. If not treated, they can cause serious health issues to living beings also.
Ant, from family Formicide, any of approximately 10,000 species of insects that are social in habit and live together in organized colonies. Ants occur worldwide but are especially common in hot climates. They range in size from about 2 to 25 mm, about 0.08 to 1 inch. Their color is usually yellow, brown, red, or black. A few genera have a metallic luster.
Typically, an ant has a large head and a slender, oval abdomen joined to the thorax or midsection, by a small waist. In all ants there are either one or two finlike extensions running across the thin waist region. The antennae are always elbowed. There are two sets of jaws: the outer pair is used for carrying objects such as food and for digging, and the inner pair is used for chewing. Some species have a powerful sting at the tip of the abdomen.
Ant species that occur primarily in human habitations are considered as pests. Ant species commonly categorized as pests that are found in India are the carpenter, harvester, honey, pharaoh, little fire, field, velvety tree, leaf-cutting, red town, thief, pavement, southern fire, etc. Among them, pharaoh ants have the reputation of being one of the hardest ants to control. Pharaoh ants are small but an infestation can be a serious problem for those in the food and medical industries. Research shows that these ants can transmit more than 12 infectious organisms. They consume sweet substances but seems to prefer foods like greasy and fatty meats.
Therefore, the presence of these ants is undesirable in sterile places like hospitals or kitchens. Some ants will raid stored food, or damage indoor structures, or damage agricultural crops directly (or by aiding sucking pests), and some will sting or bite. Certain types of ant bite can be severely painful causing rashes on our skin. Ants in restaurants and hotels may damage the reputation of these organizations.
There are generally three castes or classes, within a colony: queens males, and workers. Some species live in the nests of other species as parasites. In these species the parasite larvae are given food and nourishment by the host workers. Wheeleriella santschii is a parasite in the nests of Monosodium salmons, the most common ant of northern Africa.
Most ants live in nests, which may be located in the ground or under a rock or built above ground and made of twigs, sand, or gravel. Carpenter Ants or Camptonites are large black ants common in North America that live in old logs and timbers. Some species live in trees or in the hollow stems of weeds. Tailor, or weaver, ants, found in the tropics of Africa e.g., Tetrazolium, make nests of leaves and similar materials held together with silk secreted by the larvae. Dolichoderus, a genus of ants that are found worldwide, glues together bits of animal faces for its nest. The widely distributed pharaoh ant or Monomarium pharaonic, a small yellowish insect, builds its nest either in houses, when found in cool climates, or outdoors, when it occurs in warm climates.
Army ants, of the subfamily Doorline, are nomadic and notorious for the destruction of plant and animal life in their path. The army ants of tropical America for example, travel in columns, eating insects and other invertebrates along the way. Periodically, the colony rests for several days while the queen lays her eggs. As the colony travels, the growing larvae are carried along by the workers. Habits of the African Driver ants are similar.
The social behavior of the ants, along with that of the honeybees, is the most complex in the insect world. Slave-making ants, of which there are many species, have a variety of methods for “enslaving” the ants of other species. The queen of Bothriomyrmex deception's of Africa, for example, allows herself to be dragged by Tapinoma ants into their nest. She then bites off the head of the Tapinoma queen and begins laying her own eggs, which are cared for by the “enslaved” Tapinoma workers. Workers of the slave-making ant Protomognathus Americans raid nests of Hemothorax ants, stealing the latter’s pupae. The pupae are raised by P. Americans to serve as slaves, and, because the Temnothoraxpupae become imprinted on the chemical odor of the slave-making ants, the captive ants forage and routinely return to the slave-making ant nest.
The ant life cycle has four distinguishable life stages: egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. This is called complete metamorphosis. Depending upon the ant species and environmental factors, it generally takes several weeks to several months to complete the life cycle.
A female ant will become a queen ant when it successfully mates with a male ant. Queen ant lays eggs. Ant eggs are very small- just about a half of millimeter in diameter.
After spending 1-2 weeks in the egg stage, a grab-like, legless ant larvae hatches. This stage has an edacious appetite, and the adult ants spend much of their time feeding the larvae with food and liquids they digest and regurgitate.
After the ecdysis of larvae, they develop into the pupal stage. Ab initio, ant pupae are generally white, but slowly become darker in color as they mature.
After consumption of the pupal stage, the adult ant comes on the scene. Adult ants are one of the three different colony castes viz. queens, workers, males Do-it- yourself (DIY) ineffectiveness:
Ants pest control is not that easy to solve. Most DIY ant control approaches merely kill the ants you see. Few genuinely effective treatments can perforate and destroy nests to help in preventing these pests from returning. Secondly, home remedies neglect the fact that different kinds of ant infestations need different treatments.
ANTs Pest Control:
The adaptive nature of ant colonies makes it nearly impossible to eliminate entire colonies. Hence, you should consult a professional like us for the solution of these ants. We use “three-prong approach”. The first approach includes the treatment of living space. The different kinds of techniques we use are eco-friendly pest control chemicals. The second approach contains the treatment of ants in a yard. The Yard is the source of ants because from here they enter your home. Therefore, treatment in the yard is vital for ant control. The last approach involves the treatment of ants outside the living space. In most cases, the root of ants inside house builds their nests outside the house. Hence, it is very important to treat ants outside ménage for a semi-permanent solution of these pests. If required, we can also serve you in ships, boats, factories, hospitals, etc. as customer’s demand.
