Ant Species of Virginia
Carpenter Ants – Being attracted to soft, damp wood, the carpenter ant is a natural decomposer in the wild. In your home, those attributes are destructive. They do not consume wood as termites do, but chew through it, designing intricate nests. Professionals are needed to treat the infestation as the carpenter ant spreads in parent and satellite colonies.
Odorous House Ants – Odorous house ants get their name from the foul coconut smell emitted when it’s crushed. Also called the stink ant, this species seeks out sugary items in your home and moves in. They can nest both indoors and outdoors making them particularly problematic.
Pavement Ants – Although pavement ants have a stinger, they are not aggressive. However, they are a hassle due to their vast numbers and capabilities of invading your home, searching for food. These are tiny ants, whose anthills are a common sight across Virginia lawns.
Red Imported Fire Ants – This highly aggressive species is notorious for its persistent biting and painful sting. Native to South America, the fire ant has migrated north over the last few decades and are prevalent in Virginia today. They are easily identified by their red coloring.
