Exotenpaspoort ?

Vestigingsstatus Gevestigd
Zeldzaamheid Zeldzaam
Invasiviteit Potentieel invasief
Invasiviteit (toelichting) Ivasive in Mediterranean ares, but not yet in the Netherlands, due to the colder climate. This might change when climate change continues.
Type introductie Niet opzettelijk
Jaar van eerste introductie 1966 - 1976

Natuurlijke verspreiding Zuid-Amerika
Verspreiding in Nederland
  • Gelderland
  • Noord-Brabant
  • Noord-Holland
  • Zuid-Holland
  • Zeeland
  • Verspreiding in Nederland (toelichting) Is sometimes found during import inspections. The species sometimes ends up in buildings where it is removed. A large population was present in a greenhouse in Burgers Zoo, here the species might have dissappeared through competion with a new exotic ant. Currently, two outdoor populations exist in Capelle aan de IJssel (province of Zuid-Holland) and Sint Maarten (province of Noord-Holland).
    Habitats
  • Stedelijke gebieden
  • Onder menselijk beheer
  • Wijze van introductie
  • Verontreinigd kwekerijmateriaal
  • Transport van habitatmateriaal (grond, vegetatie, hout)
  • Impact
  • Predatie
  • Herbivorie
  • Concurrentie
  • Sociaal-economisch
  • Ecologische impact (toelichting) Is a strong competitor to native ants in urban areas and might consume a lot of nectar, being thus a competitor to flower visitors as well. Is a predator on many invertebrate species.
    Economische impact (toelichting) Colonies can have huge numbers of workers and can also be found in buildings. Eradiction is hard and costly, especially if the species is also located outdoors.
