Odorous Ants


  • Create large colonies, up to 100,000 ants, and multiple colonies are known to live in close proximity
  • Workers release a rotten coconut like smell when crushed
  • Usually invade homes when populations are large and heavy rain washes away their food sources

The odorous ants prefer to feed on sweets such as fruits and nectar in warmer weather, but will also eat insects and other prey depending on the needs of the colony. They live in massive colonies and if food and water sources are plentiful can even create super colonies. They don’t often enter the home but when they do, they can be difficult to remove since their nests are hidden. The correct treatment for these ants will depend on the colonies status and is best determined by a pest control professional. Please call Horizons to learn more.

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.
