Ants overview

Found in Hot Springs, Little Rock and throughout Arkansas, ants are social insects that live in large colonies. This is important because when you see one ant foraging in your home, there are likely to many more around. Some ants will even create satellite colonies inside structures. There are several types of ants in Arkansas. The ones that our pest control professionals encounter the most include:

Odorous house ants
They are the small black or brown ants that are often seen marching back and forth between their colony and their food source. They are often identified by the rotten coconut-like smell they emit when threatened or crushed.

Fire ants
These pests are reddish brown ants well-known for their aggressive nature.


You make pest control easy for me.
