Crazy Ants

Information, Identification, & Extermination

You can identify a Crazy Ant by its “crazy” movements after being disturbed. They look like they are aimlessly scrambling around. From the standpoint of an exterminator, they are tough to get rid of because of their crazy movements. Since they run around in crazy patterns, it can be hard to identify a trail to treat.

Crazy Ants do not form mounds, which makes them very difficult to locate and exterminate effectively. Treating ants is a challenge in general, but without mounds to give away their locations, extermination becomes more difficult.

Crazy ants are aggressive foragers. They are widespread and abundant. Invasive by nature, Crazy Ants forage in numbers and the colonies grow rapidly when well fed. They can be found to number in the billions per acre.

Crazy Ants invade industrial sites

Crazy Ants are typically found in the Southeast United States. They can come back with people who were traveling or with shipments making their way to the Northeast.

Staten Island can be a hotbed for ants. Increases recently in wildlife populations has contributed to this. The south shore of Staten Island has become home to deer and other animals since Hurricane Sandy.

When wildlife numbers increase, insect numbers will naturally increase also. Proper prevention and extermination when necessary will remedy this quickly.
