Pharaoh Ants

The Pharaoh ant is one of the smallest species of ant measuring 2mm or 1/16th of an inch long. They are light brown to orange in colour and almost transparent in appearance. These ants occur nearly everywhere in the world. Although they are not able to withstand winters outside, in southern Ontario, inside buildings they persist and multiply through out the year. Pharaoh ants are the most difficult of all ant species to control.

Pharaoh ant colonies are generally quite small but may have up to 2500 workers. Unlike most ants that have only 1 there may be anywhere from 2 to 200 queens per colony. Occasionally a queen will leave the nest accompanied by several workers. These queens then go and establish a new colony near by. Often it appears as though a house or building has a very large colony as there seem to be ants everywhere, when actually it may be the accumulated numbers from many colonies. Total numbers of insects in an apartment block may total well into the millions. Pharaoh ants are omnivorous (eats both plant and animal) and regularly eat sweets, bread, fat, grease or protein.

Pest Control Services
Pharaoh ants can only be exterminated through an extensive indoor baiting program. Residual pesticides will only drive the colonies to split or bud into 2 or more new colonies and spread to new areas A technician will come out to your property and do a thorough inspection. This information will enable the technician to determine the proper method and locations of the extermination and control program. Finally the technician will show you what has attracted the Pharoah Ants to your property and make preventative recommendations. Aanteater exterminators believe in removal of the root causes not in masking the symptoms.
