Sugar Ant

Sugar Ant (Camponotus Consobrinus)


  • This species varies greatly in shape, size and colour.
  • Range in size from 2.5 to 15 mm, and are some of the most visible ants due to their size and bright colouring.

Life Cycle

  • The ant’s life cycle has four phases: egg, larva, pupa and adult.


  • Often nests in a variety of sites, ranging from holes in wood to the roots of plants, twigs of trees and shrubs, between rocks or in the soil.
  • They can be seen during the day; however, they are most active at night.
  • They are unable to sting, but they do possess strong mandibles, which can bite. In self-defense, these ants are also able to spray acid from their abdomens to deter predators.
  • They feed on dead and live insects, as well as household waste. They are attracted by sweet food.
  • They rarely enter houses.
