Hogarth's Pest Control specializes in all types of industries, residential and commercial.
Odorous house ants are often referred to as “sugar ants” or “sweet ants” because they’re usually found in the kitchen snacking on sugary substances. These ants won’t cause any damage to the home, unlike carpenter ants and acrobats ants, but they are a nuisance insect that licensed pest control professionals can eradicate by using bait wherever they are trailing. They typically snack on sweet in the spring and proteins in the fall.
- To identify an odorous house ant, squash the ant between your fingers; it should smell like coconut.
- We advise that customers DO NOT attempt to spray or treat odorous house ants with store-bought products. Spraying will cause budding and make the problem much worse and harder to deal with.
