The best way to deal with ants is to contact your Tulsa pest control company for help. Ants are a  eusocial insect that builds colonies in our yards and homes in an attempt to protect themselves and create a life. They build massive armies that fight each other in an effort to secure the natural resources that they need to survive. While this may be fine in your backyard, if they find the way in your house, it can be a big problem. So in this article, let us take a hard look at ants, their lifecycle, and what you and your Tulsa pest control company can do protect yourselves from these insects.


Ants will often use raiding parties to fight one another and steal from each other. Take the thief ant, for example. This ant creates a small colony at the base of the ant hill of another ant, the pyramid ant. The pharaoh ant will go on about its day, doing its thing, while the thief makes its way into the pharaoh ants colony. It will let off a pheromone that makes the other ants believe that it is one of them. It will make its way down to where the eggs and larva our stored and pick up those eggs and larva, and carry them out of the colony and back to the thief colony. Here they will feed upon these.

The Amazonian ant is a slave owning ant. This animal will form rating parties that it will take into other ants colonies. Here, when they get inside, they will send off a pheromone that strikes fear into the other ants in the colony and they will run. Then they’ll pick up a bunch of larva and eggs, and take them out of the colony and back to their own. Once there, they will use their own pheromones to convince these eggs and larva as they hatch that they are part of the new colony. Then they’ll work as workers for these colonies and gather food and whatever else is necessary. Contact your Tulsa pest control company for more information on these insects. Check out our reviews!
