Big-Headed Ants Are A Big Problem

bhaCTADid you know that the big-headed ant is one of the most invasive species of ant?

The big-headed ant or BHA is a soil dwelling ant. Humans may mistake the signs of a BHA infestation for a termite infestation. BHA leave small piles of soil and make mud tubes similar to termites. This can lead to improper methods of pest control.

Although they don’t damage the wood in a home, BHA are a huge nuisance to humans. They forage in large numbers throughout homes, contaminating food.

The Global Invasive Species Database states it is one of the world’s worst invaders. They are also known to threaten biodiversity in areas, due to their tendency to attack and eat newly born animals.
