How Can I Identify Odorous House Ants?
Odorous house ants, also known as sugar ants, are small ants between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch long. They may appear either dark brown or black. Another identifiable trait of this ant is the rotten odor left behind when one is crushed.
But the most unpleasant trait of the odorous house ant is that they love to infest homes — especially kitchens and bathrooms.
In kitchens they wreak havoc by crawling all over counters, shelves, etc. and getting into food. Numbers of these ants in infested homes can reach hundreds or even thousands and are very difficult to eradicate due to their unique biology.
Their colonies consist of multiple nests and contain multiple reproducing queens. This ant is one of the most common pests found all throughout the Pacific Northwest.
What Attracts Odorous House Ants?
Odorous house ants are drawn to your home by food and water sources, especially sugary sweets (although they will eat anything).
When an ant finds a supply of nourishment, hundreds will establish one or more trails to the site, ruining the food for human consumption. Being resourceful creatures, they are able to nest almost anywhere, inside or out.
How Do I Get Rid of Odorous House Ants?
While you can purchase over-the-counter sprays and other insecticides that kill the ants you can see, this is a short-term fix that does nothing to remove the colony.
To eliminate the problem, you need the services of an experienced professional who is knowledgeable of the methods to eliminate the queens and the residents of the colony. It’s vital to contact someone at the first sign of trouble; the longer the infestation goes, the harder it is to intervene.
