Important Considerations:

  • These ants do have stingers.
  • Infestations can grow quite quickly, especially if a colony has more than one queen.
  • Little Black Ants mate in the summer months and swarms are often common during this time.
  • Although ant baits can be effective, they take daily effort and diligence to make them work.


Where to Find Them on Your Property?

Little Black Ants can adapt to most living situations but prefer to live outside. They make their homes in logs, hollow trees, cement cracks, lawns, or gardens. If they do live inside, they choose locations such as inside woodwork, hollow areas inside walls, baseboards, or under carpeting.
