Little Black Ants are Big Houston Pests!

Pest Control Houston TX – Little Black Ants Control

Little Black Ants often invade Houston and Spring TX kitchens and bathrooms.

The Little Black Ant – A Big Houston Problem…

The little black ant  is a pesky Houston ant. These ants are commonly found in wooded areas with nests in trees, stumps, brick or debris/wood piles or around logs.

You will also find little black ant nests in the cracks in cement, in lawns, circling structures and in open areas. Little black ants can be black, jet black or dark brown in color.

It is easy to spot little black ants as they are frequently seen foraging in trails along the sides of foundation walls and on sidewalks. Their tiny size (1/32 -1/8 inch) allows them easy access through any crack or crevice in a structure.

The little black ant is a common household invader in Texas report pest control companies in Houston . Once indoors they are known to set up their colony inside of wall voids, in wooden items, or in the area between the carpet and the walls. Little Black Ants are often noticed indoors as they trail about kitchen or bathroom counter tops.

They have a hunger for a wide variety of food substances, but meat (insects – dead or alive) is a favorite food choice. Being omnivorous, these annoying pests will eat meat, bread, sweets, fruits, vegetables, grease, and often plant secretions especially honeydew on plants.

An indoor invasion of little black ants is very annoying as the ant colony typically contains about 2,000 ants that are active both day and night.

The little black ant colony can have two are more queens and the population ranges from moderate to large. These ants have unevenly rounded bodies with no spines. They have a stinger, but it is so tiny that it is mostly ineffective and they pose no threat as a stinging or biting ant.

At the onset of the mating season, both the queens and the males do have wings. After mating occurs, the females will shed their wings and the males will die off.

Because of their small size and nesting prowess, it is best to hire a Houston pest control  professional which can provide effective relief options for little black ant infestations as well as other pest problems.
