Identifying characteristics of Argentine ants
Argentine ants are social insects that reside in colonies often featuring multiple nests. Unlike other species, Argentine ants are not aggressive toward ants from other neighboring colonies, which allows colonies’ numbers to grow and multiply exponentially.
When are argentine ants most active?
How are Argentine ant colonies formed?
New Argentine ant colonies are formed by budding. An inseminated queen will leave an existing nest with a small group of workers and form a new nest nearby. They do not fly when leaving but rather go on foot.
