Pharaoh Ant

Pharaoh Ant (Monomorium Pharaonis)

Appearance

  • Workers: 1.5-2mm long, yellow-brown with brown abdomen.
  • Males: 3mm long, black, winged.
  • Queens: 3.5-6mm long, dark red in colour with wings.
  • Black eyes, 2 small segments at the pedicel.

Life Cycle

  • Multi-queen colonies.
  • Swarming can take place at any time of the year.
  • Winged adults seldom fly – so rarely seen. Wings are soon lost after mating.

Habits

  • Well–defined trails are laid, which are often associated with heating systems. Feeds indoors on high protein foods — meat, fats, blood, dead insects, etc.
  • Swarming characteristics — new colonies are often formed through nests that have been disturbed, such as a result of insecticide spray treatments.
  • Each queen produces up to 3,500 eggs in its lifetime.
  • Nest locations — deep seated in the cavities of heated buildings. Often found in hospitals. Associated with humid conditions. Colonies can range from a few dozen to 300,000 ants.
