CRAZY ANT

Description

  • Crazy ants are 1/16"-1/8" in length.
  • They are dark brown to black in appearance.
  • They get their name because the workers have no particular method of finding their food. They appear to be running crazy when going to a food source or back to the colony.
  • Crazy ants have unusually long legs and antennae compared to other ants.

Control

  • Exterior perimeter treatments will provide control for crazy ants.
  • Insecticide baits can also be used to gain control.
  • Exclusion is important and sealing around windows and doors may be necessary.
  • Sanitation could contribute to crazy ant activity and cleaning may reduce the population
