Not Sure? Look attentively at the pictures and inspect the ants you see at home, it’s very important.
People often mistake them for other small ants and because they travel in tight columns and look for their food in kitchens. Some people call them ”sugar ants” but they are wrong.
The pharaoh ant is not an indigenous ant species and it can’t survive our cold climate. That’s why they are colonizing heated human buildings and they want to stay there.
The colony starts with a few individuals and a queen and it grows. When it gets big enough, it splits and moves to another territory. They live in building structures and they spread to all levels.
Destroying one colony is relatively easy, but the characteristic of this ant species is that if it feels threatened, the colony will produce more queens and it will split in multiple smaller colonies to insure its survival.
After a single insecticide spray or contact, a single colony can become 3 or 6 different colonies. And this multiplication will continue as long as they feel threatened.
Evidently, the more colonies, the harder it gets to eliminate them all. It’s a large scale job.
If you identify them call specialists to get rid of them. It is still possible to eradicate them using some special techniques and poison baits.
