Ants form colonies that range in size from a few dozen predatory individuals living in small natural cavities to highly organized colonies that may occupy large territories and consist of millions of individuals. Their ability to exploit resources may bring ants into conflict with humans, however, as they can damage crops and invade buildings looking for water, food, or shelter.
Ants have become a huge problem in the Southern United States, as their mere presence can cause issues. The anthill you may see in your front lawn is only the gate to a complex series of tunnels far beneath the ground. While individual ants may live as few as 30 days, the ants are constantly reproducing to serve a queen who can live up to 2-3 years. Family members or pets may not even spot the anthill until they are standing directly on the nest and feel the bites of angry defenders.
