Odorous house ants can turn a pleasant living space into an unpleasant one very quickly.
If you smell an unpleasant odor in your home, you may start searching for the cause of the offensive smell. But that scent might be caused by something that tends to stay out of sight: odorous house ants. These bothersome insects live in various areas throughout the U.S. and can turn a pleasant living space into an unpleasant one very quickly. They look similar to the more familiar house ant species, although they do something differently than standard house ants– when they feel threatened, these ants will start to move around erratically and release a stinky scent. People who have smelled it often compare the odor to rotten coconuts.
Spotting a few of these ants in your living space might seem like a relatively small problem. You can smash them, deal with the smell, and move on, right? Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case, as ants live in colonies. The queen ant in a colony produces many offspring, which means the problem is rarely contained to a handful of ants.
