What Do Odorous Ants Smell Like?
Odorous ants, as their name implies, are known for the distinctive, unpleasant odor they emit when crushed or threatened. This scent is often described as similar to the smell of rotten coconuts, and it is this peculiar characteristic that gives these ants their name. Despite their off-putting aroma, odorous ants are generally harmless and pose more of a nuisance than a threat.
How Can I Tell If I Have Odorous Ants in My House?
If you suspect an odorous ant infestation in your house, there are a few telltale signs to look for. First, observe any ants you encounter closely; odorous ants are small - about 1/8 inch long - and brown or black in color. Secondly, watch their behavior. Odorous ants are particularly drawn to sweet substances, so they are often found in kitchens or areas where food is kept. They typically follow well-defined trails, which can help you identify areas of infestation. Finally, the most definitive test: crush one. If it releases a rotten coconut-like smell, you can be fairly certain you're dealing with odorous ants.
Getting rid of odorous ants can be a very tough undertaking without the right tools and experience. While you may be able to eliminate some ants on their own, it can be incredibly difficult to get rid of them all since ant colonies can be extremely large. The best thing to do to tackle an odorous ant infestation is to call in a pest control professional from McCauley Services.
