Ants do look much like termites and are often confused by nervous homeowners. These insects belong to the order of Hymenoptera, which includes wasps and bees. In Australia, many of the ant species are found in rainforests in the warm, high rainfall areas along the northern and eastern coast. Australia, being a large and a diverse continent, has habitat ranging from dry sandy deserts to lush tropical rainforest. There are almost about 23 of the 103 Australian genera, which are limited to Coastal Queensland and North-Eastern New South Wales and are not found anywhere else in Australia.
