What Do Caribbean Crazy Ants Look Like?
While many ant species look almost identical, it’s possible to separate these pests from the rest. Caribbean crazy ants are red and brown, giving them an almost copper-colored appearance. These ants also have tiny hairs covering their bodies and measure roughly 1/8 of an inch in length.
Signs of Caribbean Crazy Ants
Most ants move in a linear fashion, forming a long line as they transport food to their shelter. However, Caribbean crazy ants usually travel in large, thick groups numbering thousands. They often move quickly in irregular bursts when looking for food, hence their name.
You’ll likely find Caribbean crazy ant nests in warm, sheltered crevices, both dry and moist, such as under decayed wood, rocks and buildings. These pests may also build nests in the soil or inside the trunk of a tree and can inhabit electrical appliances. Caribbean crazy ants don’t do well in cold weather, though, forcing them to take up residence in your home during the winter months.
How to Get Rid of Caribbean Crazy Ants
You’ll need a pest control specialist to successfully remove a Caribbean crazy ant infestation from your home, as standard over-the-counter ant bait will be ineffective. While traditional ant bait may attract other species of these insects, encouraging them to eat the bait that contains an insecticide, these ants find the bait unattractive and will avoid eating it.
