Pharaoh Ant Colonies
Apart from the production of repellent pheromones, pharaoh ants are also different from most other ant species when it comes to their colonies. While the colonies of most other ant species have a single queen, the colonies of pharaoh ants have several queens, and therefore, their workings are a little complex in comparison to other ants. In spite of the presence of several colonies with a single nest, all the pharaoh ants work in unison with each other without clashes.
This unique design of colonies also allows pharaoh ants to leave the main colony and set up ‘bud colonies’ with the entire set of a colony moving out. In some cases, even the individual ants living in these colonies are exchanged with others from other colonies. The nesting system of pharaoh ants is therefore quite complex.

Appearance and Characteristics
Pharaoh ants measure around 2 millimeters in length and their color varies from light yellow to hues of dark brown. Their abdomen is usually darker than the rest of their body. They possess compound eyes but have extremely poor eyesight and communicate and interact mainly through the use of pheromones. There are three types of pheromones that pharaoh ants resort to.
The first helps them in marking the trails that their fellow ants can follow, and this chemical usually lasts for several days even when these ants are no more using the particular trail. The second type of pheromone is used to mark food etc. and this chemical usually lasts only for a few minutes.
The third pheromone is what makes Pharaoh Ants different from most other ants. This species of ants were among the first that were discovered as those that were capable of producing a repellent pheromone. This repellent pheromone is put to use to serve as warning signs in case of the closure of a particular food route, or any sign of danger, etc.
Pharaoh Ants as Pests
Pharaoh ants are quite a nuisance as pests, and their unique system of budding colonies allow them to multiply and occupy larger areas with greater ease than other ant colonies. In hospitals, pharaoh ants are known to cause quite a lot of havoc, with their small size allowing them easier access to open wounds, medical instruments and other facilities, thereby assisting in the spread of infection.
In households and offices too, pharaoh ants are serious pests, feeding on almost everything they find from greasy and sugary foods to the carcasses of dead insects.
Pest control too is a difficult proposition in the case of these ants, as their ability to consolidate into smaller colonies allow them to multiply into larger ones later. Therefore, when it comes to Pharaoh Ants Control Toronto, extermination and control need to be properly planned, preferably by professional exterminators.
