Ants

Acrobat Ants can be found nesting both inside and outside of buildings.  They feed on the honeydew of aphids but will feed on a multiple of alternative food sources.  These ants can be difficult to control.

Carpenter Ants get their name from their habit of hollowing out galleries in pieces of wood for nesting purposes.  However, they do not eat the wood.  This habit can result in significant structural damage.  Carpenter ants are usually referred to as "Big Black Ants."

Odorous House Ants get their name from the "rotten coconut-like" odor they give off when crushed.  These ants readily infest inside structures.  Colonies can range in size up to approximately 10,000 ants.  They usually construct their nests in wall voids.

Pavement Ants get their name from where their nests are commonly located, in or under cracks in pavement. Colonies can become very large.  Although they are commonly found outside, this ant readily will forage inside structures and can construct nests inside.
