The pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis) is a natural enemy of household pests.
Ants can attack and destroy young pests stages:
- Cockroaches (Blatta orientalis and the whole genus Blatta)
- Domestic moth (Tineola bisselliella)
- Bed bugs (whole genus Cimex)
- Domestic and other flies
- Bark beetle (Ips typographu)
Our recommendations for the use of the Monomorium™ method are:
- 1) Removal of domestic pests from infected buildings
- 2) Protection against future invasion
- 3) Observation of ant biology, advanced genetic studies and keeping them as pets in so-called ant farms.
Description in detail
- Ants of the species Monomorium pharaonis are very small predators, but despite their small size, they are effectively organized into large cooperating groups of workers. The occurrence is limited by low temperature, which narrows the application only to warm climatic zones or heated buildings in each region of the world. Due to their wide global spread, there is no longer an ecological risk associated with the transport of these ants across borders because they are found in almost every country, including all European countries. In some cases, it is not possible to remove other domestic pests. Some of them, especially bed bugs, are becoming more and more resistant to insecticides and there are no effective ways to eradicate them. Some pests live with our neighbors who do not care about cleanliness and hygiene. There is no easy way to force unruly neighbors to cooperate and spend money on removing domestic pests. These, in turn, are not only his problem, but also ours. Insects do not respect borders and can migrate attacking other rooms and apartments. Feces of cockroaches and bedbugs are often the cause of the development of asthma and allergies or exacerbations of an existing disease. Pharaoh ants are an ideal way to ecologically and safely remove all these unwanted insects from our environment.
- In some cases, we live in an area that is particularly sensitive to re-invasion of pests. In those where it is not contraindicated, we can think about the constant presence of ants. Monomorium pharaonis will effectively protect the area from re-invasion of the remaining pests at the price of its presence. Special cases are invasions occurring as recurrent from cleanlinessless and non-cooperative neighbors. The choice is yours. You may be exposed to dangerous and more harmful insects, or you may keep ants as protectors of the terrain, of course, at the price of their presence.
- Monomorium pharaonis is an extremely interesting creature as a species of ants. It has a very complicated structure as a super-organism ruled by insect hormones called pheromones. Easy crossing of ants gives our hands the opportunity to create new lines and breeds of this species. The research takes place in many laboratories. Who knows what other applications will be invented?
