Ants – The Takeover!
With more than 12,000 known ant species around the world, ants are sure to make their mark in San Antonio.
Ants look a lot like termites, and the two are often confused—especially by nervous homeowners. However, ants have a narrow pedicel or “waist” between the abdomen and thorax, which termites do not. Along with a fit waist ants have large heads, elbowed antennae, and powerful jaws.
Forelius Pruinosus, a cousin to the Argentine ant, are one of the most commonly encountered ants in Tucson. They are small orange or yellow ants which seem to run frantically while foraging. They form long trails of rapidly-running workers, often traveling everywhere for food. These ants are found with trails leading up into trees and can easily find their way into your home. When ants find their way into your kitchen, they won’t just eat food, but they’ll contaminate it too!
