What type of ants do I have in my home?

There are actually over 12,000 different ant species worldwide, but you likely have either carpenter ants or the most common type of ant: pavement ants. These ants are dark brown to black in color and one reason pavement ants can be a major issue is that they are small, only 1/8 of an inch long. This lets them slip through cracks in siding doors and other tiny openings. Since these spaces are so tiny it can be almost impossible to try and cover all of these holes, that is if you can even find them all.

Pavement ants tend to nestle under driveways, dirt piles, sidewalks, and cracks in pavements, but they sometimes they can also be found under, logs, boards, stones, and patio blocks. They generally enter your home in search of food. Ants may swarm into buildings and nests which makes removal challenging. These swarms are mostly seen in the spring and summer and can be mistaken for termites.

Interesting and useful ant facts

Ants vs Termites

Flying ants and termite swarmers can look similar but there are some key differences.

  • The ant's body is made up of three parts - the head, trunk and metasoma (or rear). Each ant has six legs that are attached to the trunk.
  • Ants repel water due to their waxy bodies which enables them to float. In fact, ants can even live underwater for 24 hours because they don't have lungs!
  • Ants are one of the world's strongest creatures relative to their size. They can carry up to 50 times their own body weight, which would be roughly the equivalent of a human lifting a mid-size van. They are also smart enough to work together to carry bigger objects.
  • Ants don't have ears and some ants don't even have eyes! Ants feel vibrations in the ground instead and use that information to communicate and navigate.
  • Ants are the longest living insects, they can live up to 30 years!
  • Fire ants have caused up to 3 billion worth of damage a year. They are also known for their painful bite, which costs the U.S alone millions in veterinary and medical bills. They've also been known to cause damage to farmer's crops. Luckily, they are rarely found in Connecticut.
  • Ants are found on every continent except Antarctica, despite the ant in the name.
