Argentine ants are native to Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Bolivia and southern Brazil. They are one of the most invasive species found in various places worldwide. It is common to see these ants in South Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Australia, the United States and Europe.
Argentine ants undergo a developmental procedure known as complete metamorphosis, just like all other ant species. The development time may vary depending on the temperature. However, on average, their eggs hatch within 28 days and the ant reach adulthood within 74 days.
