Crazy Ant Control and Treatment
What is a Crazy ant?
Crazy ants measure between 2 and 3 mm in length and come in colors between dark brown and black. They get their name from their tell-tale erratic movements and behavior. That isn’t their only distinctive feature: they also possess incredibly long legs that visually set them apart from other ants.
Are Crazy ants dangerous?
They are not inherently dangerous, but because their nests tend to be larger than that of an average ant species, their presence can become overwhelming rather quickly. Their invasive nature combined with sheer numbers make them an incredibly troublesome infestation as opposed to a dangerous one.
Why do I have Crazy ants?
Their name is a good describer of their general behavior. While their actions aren’t organized compared to other ants, they make up for it with their large swarms. If they’ve made their home in or on your property, it is because they’ve found a reliable source of food. Crazy ants are willing to travel great distances for food, and they’ll stay nearby to continue to utilize it.
How can I prevent Crazy ants?
There are many things you can do to try to keep crazy ants out of your home. Our first suggestion is to make sure there are no cracks around the doors and windows in your home. Seal holes with caulk, putty, or plaster. Remove their source of food and the ants will have to find food elsewhere. Store pantry items in hard-shelled plastic containers. Remember to be vigilant about cleaning up the sorts of spots and spills that attract them.
