Ants can be real pests in Nova Scotia. There are two that can be especially troublesome. One of them, the carpenter ant, is a large, dark-colored ant. Carpenter ant colonies make nests in damp or rotting wood. Carpenter ant workers invade homes at night to find food or water. They frequently make secondary nests inside homes – often in attics or inside walls near water sources. Over time, carpenter ants can cause serious damage to the home. European fire ants are also troublesome. These ants make their nest in the soil. The nests are usually inconspicuous– often under piles of leaves. European fire ants are very aggressive and they can deliver a painful sting. The sting can cause an allergic reaction and a few victims suffer anaphylactic shock. People can easily walk onto a European fire ant nest without realizing it. The unsuspecting victim is quickly attacked by a large number of stinging ants. Homeowners can find themselves unable to enjoy their yards and gardens because of European fire ants. Hotel owners in some areas have concerns that these ants will also affect tourism.
