Description: House ants are black in color with a greasy sheen and are 2.3 - 3.4 mm long. They received the name Odorous due to the horrible rotting coconut smell emitted when squished.
Habit: The odorous house ant is an invasive species in Connecticut and has begun out competing our native species. Most small ant colonies in Connecticut have a size of 50,000 to 250,000 ants which is a lot of ants. The odorous ant can have colonies of up to 1,000,000. At times their trails can be 4 inches wide and seemingly endless. The odorous house ant will live just about anywhere it feels safe, with food and water. They will east just about anything they can find even residue from a spill or even some of the soaps and oils we use in our bathrooms.
