Argentine Ants

Argentine ant colonies can grow to monumental size. Their colony borders

sometimes cover entire habitats. Argentine ant queens also assist with foraging

for food. The ant gives off a musty odor when crushed. Worker argentine ants

are about one sixteenth of an inch long. Queen argentine ants are one eighth

of an inch to one quarter of an inch long.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants get their name because they excavate wood in order to build their

nests.  Their excavation results in smooth tunnels inside the wood. Carpenter

ants range in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to three-quarters

inch for a queen.

Odorous House Ants

This ant gets its name from the strong, rotten coconut-like smell it gives off

when crushed. These tiny insects range in size from one-sixteenth of an inch

to one-eighth of an inch long.

Pavement Ants

Pavement ants get their name because they make their nests in or under cracks

in pavement. They can infest structures.
