Identifying Harvester Ant Infestations
Harvester ants are, by no means, subtle creatures. Dedicated to work and grass seed, harvester worker ants strip large sections of vegetation from the land around their nests. Easy to spot in naturally grassy areas, due to the mounds constructed above their nests, harvester ants can also clear areas as large as 23 feet in diameter. Additionally, the pests cover the nest entrance with an elaborate mound, which makes an infestation even easier to detect.
Threats of Harvester Ant Infestations
While harvester ant infestations may be easy to find, they can also cause your lawn to look terrible, with whole areas of vegetation stripped away and mounds of soil rising from your otherwise carefully sculpted landscape.
