Odorous House AntsOdorous House Ants Joplin MO

The odorous house ant appears in color from black to brown and ranges in length from 1/16th to 1/8 inch in size. This species is a scavenger/predator ant that will eat most household foods, especially those that contain sugar, as well as other insects. Indoors they will colonize near heat sources or in insulation. In hot and dry situations, nests have been found in house plants and even in the lids of toilets. Outdoors they tend to colonize under rocks and exposed soil. They appear, however, to form colonies virtually anywhere. When crushed they give off a foul sweet smelling odor.
