  • Little black straight lines between food source and colony. Little black ants like to feed on sweet honeydew so fruit trees, roses and certain shrubs can cause an infestation. In homes they might colonize behind brick, beneath carpets, or inside of walls.
  • ‘Swarmers’ – winged ants that search for new places to start a colony. This is most significant of a carpenter ant colony. These ants also prefer honeydew from aphids, scales, and mealybugs. These are hard to treat due to finicky eating habits and multiple sub-colonies.
  • A foul smell involving ants. This in indicative of odorous house ants, and they are a challenge! The ant terminator will have to treat the colony directly.
