The 7 Most Common Ant Types in Dallas



Carpenter ants typically nest outdoors in stumps and logs that are in contact with the soil as well as dead tree limbs and cavities in trees. Sometimes carpenter ants will make their nest in homes, especially in wood damaged areas of the structures by termites, fungi, and/or moisture. While carpenter ants do not eat wood, the galleries they excavate can be quite extensive. 


House Ants

Odorous house ants are small and are dark brown in color. Their name comes from the foul odor of rotten coconuts that is given off when the worker ants are crushed. Odorous house ants regularly forage for food along well-traveled trails. They feed on dead insects, sweets, and meats. They form massive super colonies of interconnected satellite nests making their control a challenge at times.  



Pharaoh ants are small yellowish ants that will nest in wall voids, cabinets, boxes of food, and any other accessible crevices and spaces. Unfortunately, these ants are even known to invade sick rooms where they will feed on blood plasma and wound dressings. These are among the smallest ants that can be found infesting structures in the DFW metroplex and surrounding areas. 



Acrobat ants are named for the way worker ants carry their abdomens above the rest of the body, as if performing a balancing act. They vary in color, most in tones of red and black, and have a heart-shaped / spade abdomen. Acrobat ants nest indoors when they have access to wood or cavities moist from water leaks. As they excavate nest sites, sawdust / debris may be deposited near the nest area. 



Thief ants are so tiny that they can sometimes go undetected for many weeks. These ants earned their title by feeding off the larvae of other ant species. They are commonly seen around the kitchen sink or pantry; in fact, they are also referred to as "grease ants" because they are usually drawn to cheeses, oily foods, and meats. It is very important to immediately clean all food spills when dealing with this ants, as they will sometimes even go for sweets.



Among the many species who like honey, syrups, and jellies, Argentine ants are also meat-eaters, and they can severely damage orchard crops. Indoors, you can find these ants crawling around electrical outlets, kitchen counters, and bathroom ceilings at any time of the year. Among the super colony type ants found in central Texas, these invisible ants form the largest, most persistent networks of satellite colonies with populations ranging in the millions.  


Red Imported
Fire Ants

Usually a reddish-brown color, fire ants live in colonies of up to 200,000 individuals with mounds that can be 2 feet high and 3 feet across with as many as 50 colonies per acre. Their painful, burning sting results in pustules that take up to 10 days to heal. Some people are extremely allergic to the sting, needing fast medical attention to deal with the toxin. This invasive species is common across in Dallas and must be inevitably dealt with from time to time.
