Thief ants are among the smallest ants that can be found in a household. Just like other ant species that infest homes in Vancouver and Abbotsford, thief ants are destructive and can cause a lot of damage if not controlled in time.
How can you identify thief ants?
The first and most effective way of controlling pets is identifying them correctly. Thief ants are generally small in size, measuring about 1/32 inch long. They have a color that ranges between light yellow and red, with black marks on their abdomen. They have antennae with 10 segments. Thief ants are more than just pests, they are also parasites as they are fond of building their nests close to that of other ant species, from where they steal food.
While they have a close resemblance with the pharaoh ants, there are certain unique features or characteristics of the thief ants that can help in distinguishing them. The latter have 10 segments on their antennae that end with two segment club. On the other hand, pharaoh ants have a 12 segment antennae that ends with three segment club.
Controlling infestation by thief ants
The best way to deter these pests from invading your home business premises is by practising proper sanitation. Once they notice that there is nothing to be fed on, they will find another habitat. For that reason, general sanitation should be adhered to. Any fallen food lumps should be swept immediately and the place left clean.
In addition, cracks and crevices on window frames, baseboards, foundations or door frames should be eliminated. Materials that serve as potential habitat for these ants should also be eliminated. Leaky faucets and pipes should be repaired, tree branches and shrubs trimmed to discourage the ants from nesting.
