A common pest found throughout and Australia is the funnel ant (Aphaenogaster).
These large ants build dense, copious nests and is named after the nest’s iconic funnel shaped entrances.
There are several species of funnel ant, who essentially all live underground, only emerging after rain to excavate the soil to dry out their nests.
This creates unsightly mounds all over your lawn.
By removing the soil, the ants also make the ground unstable, creating hollows throughout your lawn.
Funnel ants are notoriously difficult to treat for several reasons:
- Difficult to detect as majority of time spent underground
- Exponential breeding rates (each nest has its own queen)
- Particularly aggressive
