Black Ant belong to the Hymenoptera (membrane winged) order of insects. They are social insects with a highly evolved caste system in which workers (sterile females) build the nests, raise young and forage for food under the direction of the queen.
They usually nest outside, walls and under paving however, it can become a pest when foraging indoors in search of food.
The pharaoh ant is a small (2mm) yellow or light brown, almost transparent and known for being a major indoor nuisance pest, especially in hospitals. The origin of this ‘tramp’ ant is uncertain, although favoured alternatives include West Africa and Indonesia. The Pharaoh ant has been introduced to virtually every area of the world including Europe, the Americas, Australasia and Southeast Asia. Pharaoh ants are a tropical species but they thrive in buildings, even in temperate regions, provided central heating is present.
