Ants of all species are the most problematic pest that we deal with. In order to treat for ants you must understand their life cycle, Biology and Habits. Ants go through complete metamorphosis. (Egg,Larva,Pupae,Adult) Unfortunately this process can take up to 30-40 days for the ant to complete its life cycle. Eggs are layed, then molts into Larvae. Worker Ants spend a big part of their day foraging for food in order to feed the larvae which eats only solid foods. Once this stage is complete the ant enter whats called the pupal stage. At this stage the ants form completely changes from the larvae stage. Its appearance is of an adult ant but its antenna and legs are folded. once its exoskeleton hardens, it enters the adult stage.
