Pest Of The Week: The Asian Needle Ant
Found in the South-East United States, the Asian Needle ant has started to become quite the pest; making a definite impact. One of their biggest impacts to date is that they are driving out Fire ants and Argentine ants in well established areas.
Asian needle ants are a dark brown (almost black) color, with a lighter almost orange antennae and legs. The measure about ¼ of an inch in length, and have been spotted as high north as Virginia. They are very common during from March through October.
Asian Needle ants frequently build their nests in the soil, under whatever debris they can find. Look for their nests under large rocks or logs. A typical Asian needle ant colony will have multiple queens, and can range in members from 100 ants, all the way up to 5,000. These ants will savage for garbage and other organic debris, but their absolute favorite meal is a termite. In this aspect, and probably this only aspect, they are beneficial to homeowners. Serious Asian Needle ant infestations require professional ant control.
