Ants, Ants, Ants (GHP & LS CEUs available)


Dr. Fred Santana, Sarasota County Extension Entomologist, will talk about and show images of some of the more commonly encountered pest and non-pest ants found in southwest Florida.

Learn some of the characteristics, habits, and behaviors, of the following species: fire ants, carpenter ants, compact carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, crazy ants, ghost ants, white-footed ants, Caribbean crazy ants, big-headed ants, Argentine ants, and rover ants.

Emphasis will be on least toxic control where possible. Super colony ants pose a special and ongoing challenge to control. You are welcome to bring samples of ants for identification.
