Homeowners may not realize that there are different types of ants that cause infestations. Some are more destructive than others. While the common house ant may just be bothersome, other types of ants can nest in a homes’ structure, electrical outlets, insulation and more.
Carpenter ants are large ants that nest in hollows of woods. The nest is usually associated with wood decay or termite damage in a house. Outdoors, carpenter ants nest in mulch and debris. They do not consume wood; they hollow it out for nests. Control is best achieved by following the ants back to the nest. The nest can then be treated with insecticide.
Ghost ants are tiny ants with a dark head and thorax and a pale abdomen. Ghost ant colonies are found in switch plates and electrical outlets and in other dark voids. They can nest either outdoors or indoors. Colonies of ghost ants have many queens. The workers are small and difficult to see, but one can follow trails from their nest to food. Ghost ants can tend aphids and are considered sweet-feeding ants.
