What Kind of Ants Do I Have?
If you have ants and live in San Diego County or southwest Riverside County, you most likely have what are called Argentine ants. Other types of ants which are found in much smaller numbers include pharaoh, fire, little black, crazy, carpenter, and odorous house ants.
All these ants will look for food ranging from sugars to proteins. However, since most adult ants cannot digest solid foods, they bring sugary particles they collect back to their nests and feed them to ant larvae. The young larvae then eat the food and regurgitate it in liquid form so the adult ants can eat it.
Adult ants are so dependent on liquid food that they may commonly be found feeding on the liquid output of aphids. In many cases, ants may cultivate aphids much the same way humans do cattle just so they can live off the liquid the bugs produce. Aphid attracting plants will almost always lead to ants if they are left untreated.
