Pest Library: Pharaoh Ant

Pharaoh ants are very small ants, about 1/16 of an inch in length. Coloring ranges from yellow to red. Pharaoh Ants can also be identified by the three-segmented club at the end of their antennas.

These ants become a major problem for homes, hospitals, apartment buildings and other structures. They nest in hard-to-reach areas such as wall voids, sub floors, and even inside furniture.

The female can produce about 400 eggs in her lifetime and these eggs will hatch in about 5 days. Pharaoh ants will eat anything edible.
