Ants Just like us, ants have colonized nearly every continent in the world. The only places without ants is Antarctica, the Arctic and a few islands. Ant might be effective, but you don’t have to live with an infestation.

Odorous House Ants

Description: These are really small ants that can easily live inside of your home. They are so small that they can find ways into your wall voids. Odorous house ants smell like rotten coconut when smashed.

Carpenter Ants

Description: Carpenter ants do not eat wood, but they burrow through it and create the tunnels and galleries that will form their nest. While not as destructive as termites, carpenter ants can still do a lot of damage.

Pavement Ants

Description: These little black ants are often found building their cone shaped colonies in the cracks of your sidewalk. You can also find them invading any structure that is built on the ground level.


Pharaoh Ants

Description: If you see a small yellow ant in your home, you are probably looking at a Pharaoh ant. These ants love anything sweet and are completely happy to create nests inside of homes and buildings.


Argentine Ants

Description: This species of ant does not swarm. Instead, argentine ants create connecting colonies with a queen for each one. This strategy makes them difficult to eliminate because there are so many egg-laying queen ants.

Acrobat Ants

Description: Acrobat ant nests are most often found in areas with moisture. That means if you have high moisture areas in your home, that is where this type of ant will build it’s nest.

Thief Ants

Description: These tiny ants get their name from their questionable activity. They sneak into larger ants nests and steal larva. If a thief ants get into your home, they will gladly switch from eating stolen larva to stealing your food.
