Did you know that there are more than 700 species of ants in North America? Many of these can be found in Missouri, including some newer invasive species. Most ants are harmless. They can contaminate food and be a serious annoyance, but they will not cause lasting damage to your home or harm to your family. However, the same cannot be said of the invasive species of ants that have been found here. The crazy ant (nylanderia fulva) is attracted to electrical boxes and can cause short circuits through building massive nests inside the box or by chewing on wire insulation. Even more concerning is the Red Imported Fire Ant (Solenopsis invicta.) This insect is native to Brazil but has moved steadily north in recent years. Though not yet identified in Missouri, it is currently found in 14 U.S. states including Texas and Oklahoma. While this ant does not invade structures, it is known to build nest mounds in yards or fields. If disturbed, they will swarm and sting! Victims are usually stung multiple times, resulting in painful pustules on the skin. For people or animals who are allergic to their venom, this can be a life-threatening situation. If you see a nest that you think may hold fire ants, do not disturb it! Call or Message Expert Pest Solutions and we will take care of the problem.
