odorous ant

SIZE: 1/16″-1/8″

DESCRIPTION:

Inside, Odorous Ants usually construct their nests in wall voids near hot water pipes and heaters. These ants prefer sweets but will also eat high protein foods such as meat and cheese. Their nests are shallow, typically just below the soil, but mostly under objects, like stones or tarps.

CONTROL ADVICE:

Repair any leaky water sources to lessen excess moisture and move any sprinklers that come in contact with your home. Keep landscaping mulch dispersed and away from the house, and other debris from piling up. Seal exterior cracks and eliminate moisture sources.
