What Are White-Footed Ants?

The white-footed ant has become a looming pest in Florida over the past 15 years. These ants infest habitats in both urban and rural areas. Their preferred nesting sites are near moisture and food and they also look for places to nest that provide protection from harsh environmental conditions as well as from other predatory insects. You will find them in moist environments such as under loose bark or rocks, in decaying trees and branches, and even in old termite nests. Inside your home, you might find their nests in wall voids, attics, under roof shingles, and in kitchens and bathrooms.

What Do White-Footed Ants Look Like?

As their name suggests, white-footed ants have dark bodies and very light-colored feet. They range from 2.5 to 3 millimeters long. They have six legs and two bent antennae. Like all other ants, white-footed ants are eusocial which means they live in castes. Reproductive white-footed ants have wings that emerge during swarm season so that they can leave the nest and begin new colonies after finding a mate.

What Do White-Footed Ants Eat?

White-footed ants eat honeydew from aphids and nectar, and prefer to eat at night. They will also invade homes in search of sweet liquids like syrup, soda, and juice as well as to find sources of water. While most other ant species share their food with the whole colony, white-footed ants do not share their food. The workers in the colony lay eggs which serve as the food source for non-foraging ants and larvae instead. 

Are White-Footed Ants Dangerous?

White-footed ants do not have a stinger and do not bite. They also don’t cause any structural damage to your home, though they can become a nuisance if they take up residence in your house.
