Damage/ Signs of an ant infestation
Farming sap-sucking insects:
In spring ants carry sap-sucking insects such as aphids and mealybugs to the plant. Aphids and mealybugs use their piercing-sucking mouthparts to feed on plant sap and secrete honeydew. Honeydew, which is a sweet sticky liquid, is a favorite food for ants.
Large colonies of ants make big tunnels that can harm and weaken plants’ root systems.
Fire ants sting and their alkaloid venom is highly irritating to humans and results in red bumps and white pustules.
Leafcutter ants can cause serious damage to crop by removing foliage which leads to a decrease in crop yield.
Ant hills are annoying to look at, but they can be eliminated using a small rake.
