Project Description

Ghost Ant

ghost ant

SIZE: 1/16″

COLOR: Head and thorax dark, rest of body very pale

DESCRIPTION:

Ghost Ants are small enough to enter a structure through tiny cracks. Once inside, they nest in cavities which include wall voids and behind baseboards. They will also nest in the soil of potted plants, and are often seen in kitchens and bathrooms trailing to and from the sinks in search of moisture.

CONTROL ADVICE:

A thorough inspection both indoor and outdoor is crucial to determine ant nest locations. Outside, seal holes and cracks around the foundation, keep landscape trimmed, and disperse piles of wood to discourage nesting. Ghost Ants generally don’t respond to bait so treating the colonies directly is needed.

ACTIVE SEASONS:

Spring & Summer
