More about ants

All ants everywhere belong to the family group Formicidae and are closely related to wasps and bees. There are thousands of different species of ants worldwide and over 3 000 species in Australia.

However, there are only a few of these that pose a problem to humans. In Queensland, the two that are most likely to be seen in homes, businesses and other buildings are the Black Ant and the Coastal Brown Ant.

All ants have a distinct, narrow “waist”. The black ant is 2.5 to 3mm long, black in colour (surprise). The coastal brown ant is light brown in colour, dimorphic with small minor workers (1.5 to 3mm) and larger (3.5 to 4.5mm) major workers with very large, darker heads. Males have wings; females have wings until mating then remain the reproductive queen ant. Worker ants are sterile and exist to serve the colony while soldiers protect the nest from predators. Larvae are a whitish grub that narrows towards the end.
