What do Argentine ants look like?

Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) are shiny dark brown to black in color and range in size from 1/16 of an inch to ¼ of an inch in length. While most members of an Argentine ant colony do not have wings, reproductives, both queens and males, do have them and are able to fly.

Are Argentine ants dangerous?

Argentine ants have been known to search for food in sewers and also crawl over trash and even dead animals. As a result, they may carry bacteria that can cause illness. Argentine ants can bite but only if provoked. Thankfully their bites do not pose a major health risk.

An invasive ant species, Argentine ants have been known to displace native ant species and thereby disrupt natural ecosystems.

How can I tell if I have an Argentine ant problem?

You might have an Argentine ant problem in your home or on your property if you see shallow ant nests under boards, stones, and plants as well as along sidewalks. Inside structures, Argentine ants nest close to moisture sources, such as pipes, sinks, and even potted plants.

What attracts Argentine ants?

Like many insects and rodents, Argentine ants are attracted to moisture and food. If your home is easily accessible and it provides the conditions that would allow Argentine ants to thrive, you could find your home and property infested by this type of ant.
