Odorous House Ant

Odorous House Ants get their name from the rotten-coconut odor that is released when the ant’s body is crushed. The ants succeed in both indoor and outdoor environments and are more apt to invade a building in rainy weather. These pests can be difficult to control if there are multiple nest sites or multiple colonies present. To exterminate we first have to identify the species of ant and then treat accordingly, both inside and outside.
