General Information About Ants

  • The average life span of an ant is 45 to 60 days.
  • When foraging, ants leave a pheromone trail so that they know where they have been.
  • A queen can live for years, making millions of offspring.
  • Ants don't have ears; they feel vibration through their feet.


  • Minimize food access: ants use pheromone trails to return to a found food source. Cleaning these trails can help to keep further ants away.
  • Seal possible ant entry points. Ants have been known to enter through cracks, window sills and even from branches of overhanging trees.
  • Ants are clever. Smaller ants can get into sealed jars by navigating the thread. They will try to find any opening, big or small, to reach sugary sources.
