    Ants in Australia

    Ants are one of the most prevalent animal species in the entire
    world, having colonised almost every landmass on Earth. There
    are more than 12,000 classified ant species in the world, out of a
    possible 22,000 in existence. These insects live in colonies that
    function somewhat like human societies, with division of labour
    and communication between individuals allowing them to live in
    an organised fashion and solve difficult problems facing the

    Ants exist in large numbers everywhere, even in urban
    environments such as cities. Ant colonies are extensive and

    Characteristics of ants

    There are many species of ants, which means varied characteristics. In general, ants vary in size from 0.75 to 55 millimetres, and can vary in colour from red to green to black. Sometimes, insects appearing to be ants with a white colouring can be spotted around the home. These ‘white ants’ are not ants at all; rather they are invasive and damaging insects known as termites. For information on white ant control, Sydney, and white ant removal, Sydney, head to our page on Termites.

    Ants are made up of three distinct body segments, all of which are covered by a hard exoskeleton that protects them from damage. Ants sense threats and find their way around using thaeir compound eyes and their pairs of antennae, which detect chemicals, vibrations and changes in the air.

    Ant colonies operate as a superorganism, meaning that although they are made up of many individual ants they all work together towards untied purposes, such as nest building, food gathering and colony defence.

    Possible health risks and
    inconveniences from ants

    When threatened, most ant species respond with a bite to the threat. Ant bites can be a health risk, depending on the species of ant; there are some ants with extremely painful bites that can cause side effects such as blisters and rashes. Even the relatively harmless ant species can cause such side effects with their bites, though less painful in nature. Some species of ant also trigger allergic reactions through their bites, so ensuring there is no danger to family and friends with such allergies is important.

    Ants can also be an inconvenience due to their habit of seeking out sustenance within a home, leading them to consume and potentially contaminate food within a home, as well as make holes in house structures in order to travel.
