Brown Field Ant
The queen measures nearly 6 mm, the worker and the male are almost 3 mm long, they have a colour of a pale brown to medium brown.
Brown field ants feed on dead or living insects, flower nectar, but have a preference for honeydew produced by other insects such as aphids.
Brown field ants live in mineral soil (sand, silt, etc.). They come to our homes to find food, preferably sweet. Their abundance in the lawn is a good indicator of the state of your lawn.
The queen and males generally mate in late summer and early fall.
