Argentine ants prefer a sweet food source such as honeydew, fruit juices and plant secretions, but will also forage on proteins such as meat, insects, eggs and fat. They may even attack small, vulnerable animals.

Males 3mm long, black. Winged (but do not fly). Queens 3.6-5mm long, dark red in color. Winged (but do not fly). Wings are lost soon after mating.
