Ants are an integral part of our ecosystem. They have a pivotal role in the environment, because they do their part to aerate the soil, they help with pollination, as well as fertilising plants. They also help control other insects in the garden, thus helping you keep a healthy balance in your outdoor area. But they can also pose a danger, especially if you step on their colony by accident. Australia is the home of over 1K ant species and subspecies. This infographic will present you the top 8 most popular Australian ant species, and will provide a little more information on their size, habitat, and some interesting facts as well.
