About Ants In Australia

Ants in Australia

Australia has a wide variety of native and invasive ants. Ants live in structured colonies, and usually have specific roles.

Most ants use either their mandibles or stingers to defend themselves or attack their prey, and can leave a nasty, painful welt on humans. Some species like the Bull Ant, or Inch Ant, can cause excruciating pain.

Black Ants

Black Ants are probably what come to mind when you first think of ants. They are very small, between 3-5mm long and live in large colonies generally up to 7,000 ants. They will often scavange for food and water in houses, and can be quite crafty when looking for a way in.

Bullants or Inch Ants

Giant bull ants are native to Australia and have the biggest class of worker ant in the world, growing up to 40mm long. They are an aggressive species that will swarm and attack when their nest is disturbed, and will often hold their ground or move to attack when approached by another creature.

Other Common Ants in Australia

Common ant types found in Australia are the Black Ant, Argentinian Ant, Fire Ant and Giant Bull Ant.

How To Tell If You An Ant Infestation

The feeling you get when you come home to see a stream of ants going into your cupboard is not a pleasant one. Infestations are generally noticed when large swarms or streams of ants are spotted either in a building or outside.


The streams of ants going into your house to eat the leftovers from the BBQ gathering last night are generally worker ants.

They will find gaps in your cornices and brickwork to enter your home and search for food and water.


Nests are a classic telltale sign of ants. Nests can be in soil and look like the one above or be under things such as wood or foundations. Often, you will be able to find nests by following and columns back to them.
