Ant Identification
The worker of the Argentine ant is approximately 1.6mm in length - body is light to dark brown in colour.
Description
Argentine ants will follow food trails for long distances, this makes finding the nest difficult. They bite but no not sting.

The Argentine ant prefers sweet foods but will also eat live and dead insects, meats, cereals and damaged fruit.

Worker ants are produced in spring and increase in numbers until autumn. Winged ants, reproductive kings and queens, are produced in spring and mature within three months. Argentine ants mate in their nest so no swarming is seen.

Argentine ants drive out other ant species from an area.
