In our last post, you learned about several of our problem ants in New Mexico, and now it’s time to learn about a few more. Our state has a number of ant species, but you’re more likely to need Carlsbad New Mexico pest control services for these common ants.
Carpenter ants are large ants that are known for destroying wood, although there are a few smaller types. These ants hollow out wood inside homes or in outdoor areas in order to build their nests. This can lead to extensive damage over time.
Pavement ants are small brown or black ants that typically live outdoors near sidewalks or other concrete areas. They can also infest homes and build nests inside walls and other empty spaces. Pavement ant colonies can be very large.
Odorous House Ants
Odorous house ants are small ants that are black or reddish-brown in color. These ants give off an unpleasant smell when they’re crushed. Odorous house ants can get into homes and build their nests inside walls.
These brightly colored ants are medium-sized and give off a lemon or citronella smell when crushed. Yellow ants can invade homes and be mistaken for termites, although they tend to stay outside near foundations.
