Clark Pest Control – Experts in Garden Ant Control
Black Ants also referred to as (Lasius niger) are social insects. They live in colonies. Just like any other social insects, they consist a number of castes which comprise a complicated community in a nest. In black ants (lasius niger) community, there is a queen in each nest. Workers are the most common caste and they will be often seen distances away from the nest looking for food. Males and queens are produced in specific periods of the year. The presumptive queens and males are characterised by wings. They will be seen in most warm humid days during summer.
Workers of the Black Ants (Lasius niger) community are about 2-5mm in length. They are exclusively black or brown in colour. The workers will be seen more often due to their active role in the community of black ants. They will be seen in your basement and kitchen searching for food. This can make your efforts of trying to preserve food very hectic. They are tiny hence they can easily enter your kitchen cabinets where they will contaminate the food. The males and presumptive queens are larger in size. They can range from 3.5-4.7mm and 6.6-10mm respectively. They are predominantly black, but when they emerge from the nest they will be seen with wings. Males will die shortly after mating but the presumptive queens will lose wings after mating.
