Ant Facts

Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source. Ants can nest anywhere in and around your house--in lawns, walls, stumps, and even foundation. A colony can live relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years and the queen may live up to 15 years. Colonies can number up to 500,000 and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.
