Pharaoh ants were perhaps named because they have two wings on their bodies, giving them a decorative sarcophagus look. These wings do not allow them to fly, though they are a type of ant that can cause a flying ant infestation. Females of the pharaoh ant variety lose their wings, it is said, the first time they mate. Another theorised origin of their name is because some scholars believe that the pharaoh ant caused and spread the plagues of Egypt. However, this reason may have a stronger ring of truth because the pharaoh ant can carry and spread:
- Bubonic plague
Ant infestation in the house is never pleasant. Black garden ants are slightly easier to find and eliminate; however, ant infestation by pharaoh ants is much trickier.
