Ants are among the most prevalent pests in households. Ants also invade restaurants, hospitals, offices, warehouses, and other buildings where they can find food and water. On outdoor and sometimes indoor plants, Ants look much like termites, and the two are often confused—especially by nervous homeowners. However, ants have a narrow “waist” between the abdomen and thorax, which termites do not. Ants also have large heads, elbowed antennae, and powerful jaws. These insects belong to the order Hymenoptera, which includes wasps and bees. Ants also perform many useful functions in the environment, such as feeding on other pests (e.g., fleas, caterpillars, and termites), dead insects, and decomposing tissue from dead animals
Ants are a problem that many people have. There is nothing more disturbing, annoying or embarrassing than having ants in your home. Furthermore, there are several different species of ants that can be dangerous to you or your family members. Some ants are very aggressive and when their nest is disturbed, they will sting in several times, fire ants can also be deadly, especially for children and unhealthy adults.
