Common Types of Ants in Our Area
These are some of the types of ants we encounter most often at our customer’s homes:
Ghost ants are also known as sugar ants for their tendency to feed on sugary foods, whether that’s the honeydew they get from insects such as aphids, or the cake crumbs they find in your kitchen. (Chances are good that the ants you spot on kitchen countertops are ghost ants.) These ants don’t usually bite or sting, and when they do, the reaction is almost always minor.
Named for the white tips of their legs, large numbers of black-bodied, white-footed ants can be a significant problem in the summer months. Because these ants don’t take to ant bait as many other types do, it’s important to have regular pest control service from professionals who will locate and treat their colonies’ nesting places.
Unlike other types of ants that closely follow trails, these ants move erratically and will forage over long distances from their nesting sites. Crazy ants aren’t very picky about their food, eating everything from live insects and fruit, to seeds and whatever they can find in your cupboard.They will nest in a range of places, too, such as cavities in trees, in the soil, in garbage, and in both damp and dry environments.
There are several species of carpenter ants in Florida, with two types in particular—Camponotus floridanus and Camponotus tortuganus—commonly found near structures. Carpenter ants are some of the largest ants in the state, making them easy to spot. They don’t sting, but they do bite, and they’re one of the most common pests you’ll find indoors, where they come to seek sweets or moisture. Treating a carpenter ant problem often requires following a trail of ants to their nest and directly treating the nest.
Fire ants are dangerous. At best, their painful sting will cause pustules and intense itching; at worst, they’ll cause severe, even life-threatening reactions in those who are allergic. They will attack people, pets, and wildlife. Fire ants are resilient creatures and they are likely to re-infest the same area if ant control measures aren’t maintained. Getting rid of these pests is not a do-it-yourself task: If you’ve seen a fire ant mound on your property, keep your distance and call Gregory’s Pest Control at 954-326-8287 to schedule ant control service.
This invasive species is a growing nuisance in South Florida, but it doesn’t cause structural damage, doesn’t sting, and won’t bite unless it perceives a threat to its nest. Bigheaded ants may nest in your lawn or flowerbeds, under slabs and brick walkways, and other spots where you’ll notice the piles of sandy soil they deposit as they dig underground. These ants don’t stick to their below-ground nests, however—they may also be seen foraging in your kitchen or bathroom.
This ant is common in households around the world and is considered a major indoor pest here in the U.S. It’s a challenge to control pharaoh ants anywhere that food is available to them. They’ll eat almost any type of food, including sweet, oily, and fatty foods, and they can find food quickly. Pharaoh ants will nest in some unusual spots, such as inside appliances or trash piles. In fact, their tendency to build inaccessible nests is one reason controlling them is difficult.
