Fire Ants

Due to their aggressive and mean bite fire ants are the most know ant in most parts of Texas. They are relatively small around 1.6-5 mm in size and have a reddish color to them. Fire ants are quick to anger and will attack any animal or person that comes in close contact with their nest. Colonies may contain several queens and thousands of worker ants and are mostly found outdoors. 


Fire Ant Bites

When a red imported fire ant bites a human, the sensation is comparable to that of being touched by a lit match. After they bite, the ants hold on to the victim with their mandibles (jaws) and use their stinger to deliver their venom. Most people experience pain and red bumps, though a few individuals are allergic to the red imported fire ant and may experience a severe reaction. Emergency services should be contacted immediately if a sting victim experiences nausea, headache or difficulty breathing.


Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are commonly black but depending on the species can have a reddish or yellowish colorization. The size of the colony has a wide range from 3.4-13 mm. Carpenter ants do not eat wood as termites do, but instead, remove wood and deposit the debris outside of their nests in small piles called frass. They will feed on a variety of food people eat, particularly sweets and meats. They will also feed on other insects. Carpenters are more active at dawn and dusk.

Argentine Ants

Argentine ants range from light to dark brown and are 2.2-2.8 mm long. Argentine ants are readily adaptable and can nest in a great variety of places. Colonies are massive and may contain hundreds of queens. Nests are usually located in moist soil, next to or under buildings, along sidewalks or beneath boards. These ants travel in trails. Argentine ants are omnivorous, meaning that they can eat almost anything, but they prefer sweet foods. 

Odorous House Ants

Commonly called odorous ants, these ants range from 2.4-3.3 mm in size and have dark brown or black bodies. Colony sizes are very large consisting of several queens and over 100,000 workers. Fortunately these ants do not bite. Since these ants are opportunists, they will nest indoors and outdoors.  Odorous house ants forage for food night and day. Outdoors they prefer honeydew from aphids. When the honeydew supply is reduced in autumn, they may move indoors for food. Indoors, they eat meats, sugary foods, dairy products, pastries, cooked or raw vegetables and fruit juices.

Acrobat Ants

Most species of acrobat ants are less than 5 mm in length and vary in color being mostly black. When aggravated they will raise their spade-shaped abdomen above their head. Many emit an unpleasant odor when disturbed. Outdoors, acrobat ants nest near moisture such as under stones, in stumps, in rotting logs and under woodpiles. When they invade homes, acrobat ants often nest in damp areas such as in foam sheathing behind siding and in weep holes.
