Ghost Ants Mean Big Problems for Tampa Bay Area Homes

Ants are among the most common pests that invade our homes, but did you know many different species of ants live in the Tampa Bay area? One of the species you may find rummaging through your home is the ghost ant. 

Ghost ants are an extremely small species ranging from 1.3 to 1.5 mm in length. Their head and thorax are dark compared to the rest of the body, which is light and almost translucent. Ghost ants like to build nests in moist grass or inside potted plants. Indoors, they prefer to nest in cracks and wall voids out of sight.

Ants like to invade in large numbers, and ghost ants are no different. If you see a trail of tiny ants in your home, it is time to take action!

Tips to Prevent Ghost Ants in Your Home or Business

Our technicians will work with you on prevention strategies. Some steps property owners can take include these proactive measures: 

  • Maintain cleanliness: Keep your living or working space clean and free of food crumbs, spills, and debris. Regularly wipe down surfaces, sweep floors, and clean up spills promptly to eliminate potential food sources.
  • Seal entry points: Thoroughly inspect and seal off any cracks, gaps, or openings around doors, windows, pipes, and utility lines where ghost ants can enter your property. Use caulking or weather stripping to block these entry points.
  • Address moisture issues: Ghost ants are drawn to moisture-rich environments, so fix any leaks, drips, or condensation issues in plumbing, sinks, and appliances. Ensure proper ventilation in damp areas like bathrooms and kitchens to reduce the humidity levels that attract ants.
  • Store food properly: Keep your food items in airtight containers or sealed packages to prevent ghost ants from accessing and contaminating your pantry supplies. Pet food should also be stored securely to avoid attracting ants looking for easy food sources.
  • Trim vegetation: Keep tree branches, bushes, and plants trimmed away from your home or building to prevent outdoor ant colonies, including ghost ants, from gaining easy access indoors. Create a barrier between vegetation and your property to deter ant pathways.

Incorporating these tips into your pest prevention routine can significantly reduce the likelihood of ghost ant infestations in your home or business.
