Ants – They’re a Major Problem on the Sunshine Coast
Ants are said to be one of the strongest pests ever existing – being as old as dinosaurs. This species of insects can lift 100 times as heavy a thing as their own mass. With almost about 10,000 known species of ant found across the globe, they are an absolute nuisance and they’re a major problem on the Sunshine Coast.
The Sunshine Coast is well-known for the presence of ants and the experiences highest sunshine levels in the world. With an average of almost 7 hours of sunshine a day, the coast generally remains warm year around, providing an ideal climate for breeding of these ants. Most of the ants become pests as they enter your house in search of water and food.
Ants are much harmful than anyone can even think. Certain types of ants such as fire ants and harvester ants can harm you as they sting animals and humans. Other species, such as carpenter ants also need attention because they damage furniture and building material.
Most of the ants are intruders in your house and are mostly red, black or brown in color, narrower at the waist, and about 1/2″-1/4″ long. If you get to see discarded wings they are a symbol of a colony of ants and their reproduction.
