Odorous House Ants

Often referred to as sugar ants or pissants, Odorous House Ants are one of the most common and difficult types of ants to control. They can make nests just about anywhere! Their name comes from the smell produced when they are squished.

One of the interesting traits is their ability to do what is called “Budding” which means they will split up their colony into multiple colonies if they are disturbed or distressed. That is why Frontier Pest Control uses a type of bait that the workers take back to the nest instead of residual sprays or dusts that disrupt the colony. This method may take a little longer to see results but you will be happier in the long run. When repellants such as Raid, or other “over the counter” alternatives are used you might end up with a bigger problem than what you started with.
