Ants pest control
Ants are a type of insects which are capable of adapting any kind of environment and so they can live in any atmosphere. It has been estimated by E.O. Wilson that the total biomass of all the ants in the world is approximately equal to the total biomass of the entire human race. That is, there are approximately one million ants for every human on earth. Ants can multiply rapidly and their presence in human habitations is often problematic. Ant problem should not be neglected. If not treated, they can cause serious health issues to living beings also.
Ants build many different types of homes. Many ants build simple little mounds out of dirt or sand while other ants use small sticks mixed with dirt and sand to make a stronger mound that offers protection from rain. Some ants live in wood like termites
What Ants Can Do?
Ant species that occur primarily in human habitations are considered as pests. Ant species commonly categorized as pests that are found in UAE are the carpenter, harvester, honey, pharaoh, little fire, field, velvety tree, leaf-cutting, red town, thief, pavement, southern fire, etc. Among them, pharaoh ants have the reputation of being one of the hardest ants to control. Pharaoh ants are small but an infestation can be a serious problem for those in the food and medical industries. Research shows that these ants can transmit more than 12 infectious organisms. They consume sweet substances but seems to prefer foods like greasy and fatty meats. Therefore, the presence of these ants is undesirable in sterile places like hospitals or kitchens. Some ants will raid stored food, or damage indoor structures, or damage agricultural crops directly (or by aiding sucking pests), and some will sting or bite. Certain types of ant bite can be severely painful causing rashes on our skin. Ants in restaurants and hotels may damage the reputation of these organizations.
Ants are social insects, which mean they live in large colonies or groups. Some colonies consist of millions of ants. There are three types of ants in each species, the queen, the sterile female workers, and males. The male ants only serve one purpose, to mate with future queen ants and do not live very long. The queen grows to adulthood, mates, and then spends the rest of her life laying eggs. A colony may have only one queen, or there may be many. Ants do not carry any disease; therefore, pose no threat to human or pet life. However, some species of ants, like fire ants, can sting causing a burning sensation and pain. These ants are also harmful to plants and animals

The ant life cycle has four distinguishable life stages: egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. This is called complete metamorphosis. Depending upon the ant species and environmental factors, it generally takes several weeks to several months to complete the life cycle.
A female ant will become a queen ant when it successfully mates with a male ant. Queen ant lays eggs. Ant eggs are very small- just about a half of millimeter in diameter.
After spending 1-2 weeks in the egg stage, a grab-like, legless ant larvae hatches. This stage has an edacious appetite, and the adult ants spend much of their time feeding the larvae with food and liquids they digest and regurgitate.
After the ecdysis of larvae, they develop into the pupal stage. Ab initio, ant pupae are generally white, but slowly become darker in color as they mature.
After consumption of the pupal stage, the adult ant comes on the scene. Adult ants are one of the three different colony castes that is, queens, workers, males.
Facts Abouts Ants
- Ants have been living on the Earth for more than 100 million years and can be found almost anywhere on the planet. It is estimated that there are about 20,000 different species of ants. For this reason, ants have been called Earth’s most successful species.
- Some birds, like Jays, spread their wings on an ant’s nest to get ants in their feathers. It is thought that this is because the ants squirt formic acid that gets rid of bird parasites.
- Western Harvester ants make a small mound on top, but then tunnel up to 15 feet straight down to hibernate during winter.
