Pharaoh ants are one of the smallest ants at up to 2mm in length and are yellow in colour with black markings on their abdomen.
These ants have become a serious problem in almost every type of building. They tend to nest in warm, moist areas that are usually well hidden. In the home, they will locate behind baseboards, under carpets, cabinet voids and even inside curtain rods.
These ants feed on proteins, sweets and fats.
It takes little more than a month for a pharaoh ant to grow from an egg to an adult. They have multiple queens and are able to move their colonies from place to place when disturbed.
You should not exterminate ants using sprays and dusts because they will only cause the pharaoh ants to scatter and form new colonies. If you see these small ants in house, contact the ant removal experts at Environmental Pest Control who will effectively deal with your ant infestation.
