Funnel ants are best known for producing unsightly mounds in lawns, they are a tan-brownish colour and can reach up to 5mm in length.
The funnel that they create acts as a trap which other insects fall into and will struggle to get out of before being attacked by this ant which is an omnivore, eating proteins and occasionally sugars from natural sources.
Funnel ants can be aggressive when defending the nest and do have the ability to sting.
Funnel Ant Treatment
The most effective treatment for Funnel Ants is to apply an appropriate granular or iquid pesticide, such as Termidor, to the affected and surrounding areas.
