Description:


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.

Food:


Brown field ants feed on dead or living insects, flower nectar, but have a preference for honeydew produced by other insects such as aphids.

Habits:


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.

Reproduction:

The queen and males generally mate in late summer and early fall.
