What Attracts Ants?

When ants start popping up around your home or workplace, they are looking for food, water, moisture, and shelter. Ants are often attracted to various types of food, as different species prefer sweets, meats, fats, or oils.

When they find what they are looking for, ants will leave an invisible chemical trail that contains pheromones for other ants to follow once a source of food has been located. They will come to gather any food they find and take it to their nest, and they will keep coming back for more.


Where Are Ants Most Commonly Found?

Unfortunately, ants are able to enter any property through tiny cracks in the property’s foundations or in window seals, making it very easy for them to move around. They are often seen around kitchen sinks, pantries, kitchen floors, lounge room floors, or anywhere else where they can find food.
Their nests are located close to your property. They are usually underground, but they can also be built inside tree hollows, plant pots, and sometimes even inside buildings.

Types of Ants

Ants are the most likely type of insect that will try to take over your property. There are many different species of ant that have unique habits, characteristics, food preferences, and where they choose to nest.
  • Carpenter ants
  • Argentine ants
  • Black garden ants
  • White-footed house ants
  • Coastal brown ants
  • Bull ants
  • Fire ants
  • And, unfortunately, many more.
