Rogers Ant

Description

Another small, brownish red ant with a very shiny head and narrow waist. Unusually the females are winged and can sting.

Signs of infestation

The main sign of an infestation would be flying females and being stung. The winged females can often be found in electric fly killers.

Information

Rogers Ants are unlikely to be seen outside in the UK except in high summer as they are not active until temperatures exceed 70 degrees (around 21 Celsius) which is why the Rogers Ant will try to make its way into our centrally heated homes and greenhouses.

Reproduction

The Rogers ant female is winged (the male is not) and they swarm all year round. They can sting if they become strapped within clothing etc

Call the professionals to deal with these ants. They are notoriously difficult to locate due to their need for heat.
