The start of a new colony begins when a mated winged female ant creates a cell that provides for a large number of white eggs. After 3-4 weeks these eggs hatch into legless larvae. The female adult ant feed the larvae through secretion of their salivary glands. The larva matures and pupate in the cell after 3 weeks. The adult ants emerge after about 2 weeks. The first generation of adults will be workers. These tend to the queen and the next batch of larvae by collecting and digging tunnels in the nest.
Ants feed on a range of foods from small dead insects to nectar and sugary secretions produced by greenfly and black fly. In the summer winged males and females will emerge on a hot or humid day. They leave the nest in large numbers usually in the afternoon and mate in the air, the males die after mating, and the females ant survive to start new colonies.
