What Are Pyramid Ants?
Pyramid ants are a kind of predatory ant that are medium in size, about 2 to 4 millimeters long. They are light orange in color. They are not aggressive towards humans, but they are fast-moving. Worker pyramid ants will emit a foul coconut-like odor when crushed.
Pyramid ants hunt other living insects, even other winged ants. They will seek out sap-sucking insects in order to collect the honeydew from them. Insects like aphids, scale insects or any other insect that feeds on plants are their preferred meal.
When in your home, pyramid ants will search for sweet foods like sugar, sugar alternatives like honey, maple syrup, corn syrup or candy and cakes.
How To Kill Pyramid Ants Indoors
The most effective way to not have pyramid ants in your home is to prevent them from getting into your home in the first place. Make sure there are no cracks in your foundation or walls and that all your doors and windows have tight-fitting seals. If you have a lot of aphids, the preferred food for not just pyramid ants but several other kinds of ants as well, make sure you have that population under control. Remove any ground covering that can serve as a nesting area for pyramid ants. You can treat your yard with a gel, granular or liquid ant bait to eliminate pyramid ants since they do not nest in your home.
