Do I Keep the Ants?


In North America, there are about a thousand species of ants.  Many of those species can be found in Texas. One could say Texas has the “good, the bad, and the ugly” ants.  Should you allow ants to keep living near you?

Not all ants are bad insects.  As a matter of fact, many ant species are beneficial.  While most of us think of ants as pests, there are only a handful of species that cause real problems.  In fact, only a few species could be considered harmful to the natural environment.  They aerate soil, are the penultimate recycling machines, and prey on other insects that do more harm than good.

So, in response to the question: “Do I keep the ants?”  It all depends.

On What Does It Depend?

It depends on what you want to accomplish.  If there’s a fire ant colony in your backyard, there is no question you’ll want to eradicate the m.  But, what if it is a species of ant in the “back 40”.  They’re not bothering anyone.  They’re probably aerating the soil in your garden?  Some may think “an ant is an ant.  Get rid of it.”  But, maybe you should keep those ants.
