Sugar Ant


  • Thief ants are incredibly small with workers only 2mm long
  • Their primary food source is stealing from other ants
  • Small colonies that nest indoors in small crevices, woodwork and masonry

The sugar ant is also called the thief ant and gets it name from the fact that they commonly form their nest close to the nests of other species and steal their food. They are a common ant in Alabama and can easily live inside people’s home. They are so small that infestations sometimes go unnoticed, in fact they are one of the smallest ant species in the world.  Not only will they steal from other ants but will also eat the larvae of other ant colonies. If spotted, please call a pest control professional to hear about our residential services.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
