Why Do I have Bigheaded Ants?

bigheaded ant

Bigheaded Ants are yet another major invasive species that is found here in Florida. They get their common name for their overly large head in relationship to the ants’ overall body size. Bigheaded Ants are commonly found nesting in your soil that has been disturbed, under your patio, and yard debris located on the ground surface. Bigheaded ants are omnivores, this means that they feed on both plant and other insects. This means that a large population/colony of insects in your yard will attract Bigheaded Ants.

They will climb up the outside perimeter walls of your home, finding small openings/cracks in the wall or window/doors for entry. Once in, they will make themselves at home; most likely in the kitchen area where there are plenty of food sources. They can live off grains, high-sugar content foods, seeds, vegetables, and other high-protein items.

Locating Bigheaded Ants In Southwest Florida

An infestation of Southwest Florida Bigheaded Ants can cause damage to a manicured lawn and have the potential to move to exposed fruits, packaged goods, and contaminating pantry goods. Being omnivores, they can also feed on houseplants which unfortunately can severely damage or kill them.

As with most ants, the number one sign that Bigheaded Ants are present is the sighting and sign of worker ants. They are sent out from the colony to forage for food, which is the main reason they enter your home from the outdoors and are visually seen in your kitchen and sometimes your bathroom as well.
