Which Ant is Invading Your Home?

There are thousands of species of ants in the world, but only a fraction of these invade homes. These common household pests can range from small, black ants to large carpenter ants that damage wood structures. Ants have different nesting habits and food preferences, so it's important to determine which species you're dealing with before attempting any type of ant control. Some species build nests in soil or under rocks while others may be found indoors near water sources such as sinks and bathrooms. Knowing the type of ant invading your home will help you determine an effective course of action for eliminating them.

The most common ant species we have encountered in Union County are:


  • Carpenter ants: These large ants can cause considerable damage to wood structures, such as walls and floors. They are typically black or dark brown in color and have a two-segmented abdomen with a broad head and mandibles.
  • Odorous house ants: These small ants give off an unpleasant smell when crushed or disturbed, which is how they got their name. They are usually light brown to black in color with six legs and antennae on their heads.
  • Pavement ants: These small, black ants tend to build nests near paved surfaces outside the home, from which they may enter through any cracks or crevices they can find indoors. 
  • Pharaoh ants: These yellowish-brown ants are very small but effective at invading homes when temperatures drop outside during winter months - often infesting areas of kitchens and bathrooms where there is moisture present like sinks and showers. 
  • Acrobat ants: As their name suggests, these species of ants will raise the back portion of their bodies if disturbed - giving them an acrobatic appearance! The worker class ranges from reddish-brown to yellowish-black in color while queens are larger than workers – typically 2.5 to 3 mm in length.
