Domestic Black Ants

Black Ants

The term “Black Ants” typically covers several species of ants that are dark in color. In many regions, including Malaysia, this term is often used colloquially to refer to the common black garden ant (Lasius niger) and other similar species. These ants are usually found in outdoor settings but can enter homes in search of food.

Key Points:

  • Habitat: Black ants build their nests in soil, under stones, or within cracks in pavement. Garden ants often nest outdoors but will forage indoors.
  • Diet: They are omnivorous, feeding on sugary substances, other insects, and food debris in human environments.
  • Impact: Generally, black ants are considered less of a nuisance compared to other ant species. They do not pose significant health risks, though they can contaminate food.
