Acrobat Ant


Acrobat Ant

Because there are usually numerous queens in one colony, its not as effective to spray the sugar ants with pesticides (this actually stimulates egg-laying by the queens, making the problem worse). Effective for a professional pest control technician to do a thorough inspection to determine where bait should be placed since they prefer sweet food. Argentine ants begin feeding on the bait, then they will feed it to their colony and it will slowly eradicate.

Acrobat ants frequently nest inside decaying wood. Form single file trails. Often leave behind small sawdust piles that resemble those of carpenter ants.

If bitten, acrobat ants will produce a mild sting. May move into attics to incubate eggs and brood. Will tunnel into water-damaged wood.

Granular bait around the perimeter of the structure work well to treat acrobat ants. Perimeter spray with a non-repellent product.
