Frequently Asked Questions About Ants

What are ants?

Ants are social insects that live in colonies, and they can be categorized into different species based on their characteristics. Here are some common types of ants found in our area:

  • Fire ants: These are reddish-brown ants with a stinger that can deliver painful bites and stings. They build large mound-like nests in soil and can be aggressive when disturbed.
  • Carpenter ants: Carpenter ants vary in size and color, with some species like the Floridian carpenter ant being reddish-brown and others like the Pennsylvanian carpenter ant being black. They nest in wood and can cause structural damage to buildings.
  • Acrobat ants: These are small, dark brown to black ants with a heart-shaped abdomen that they raise over their head when disturbed.
  • Crazy ants: Crazy ants are dark brown to black ants with long legs and erratic, "crazy" movements. They do not follow regular foraging trails and can be challenging to control.
  • Pharaoh ants: Pharaoh ants are pale yellow with a slightly reddish-brown abdomen. They are small and can infest various areas, including kitchens and hospitals.
  • Argentine ants: These are dark brown ants with a slender build and a single node between their thorax and abdomen. They form large colonies and can become a nuisance in homes.
  • Raspberry ants: Raspberry ants are reddish-brown ants that emit a strong, vinegar-like odor when crushed. They can invade electrical equipment, causing damage and malfunctions.
