Pest Of The Week: The Ghost Ant
With Halloween just around the corner; what better pest to feature as our pest of the week than the Ghost ant. Ghost ants garner their name because of their translucent legs and abdomens. These tiny ants, measuring a mere 1.3-1.5 mm, are found throughout the tropical areas of the world. In the United States you can find Ghost ants in Oregon, Hawaii, Iowa, and Texas. These ants are not fond of cold weather climates.
Ghost ants enter our homes usually to forage for foods like sweets and grease, but will also feed on living or dead insects. Serious Ghost ant infestations require professional ant extermination.
