The Coastal Brown Ant can be found nesting in disturbed soils, lawns or flowerbeds, under objects such as bricks, cement slabs, or flower pots, as well as around trees or water pipes and along the base of structures and walkways.
Displaced soil is usually observed from the action of ants digging below the surface, and homeowners often find ‘dirt piles’ due to ants foraging in bathrooms, kitchens, around doors and windows, and on exterior paved or brick walkways or driveways. Their attraction to food also causes annoyance within populated areas.
If left untreated ants of any species can bring up sand, undermine paving bricks and cause pathways to collapse. They can also invade the house, particularly the kitchen, where they are attracted by food.
