These guys are getting worse as time passes. They are very easy to identify and have very distinct habits. These ants will live almost anywhere including under rocks, planters, a piece of paper on the ground, just anywhere. They become a terrible nuisance in your home very very fast. We highly recommend a treatment plan that persists for a length of time. I rarely see these ants move after we begin the fall cool-down. I begin seeing them in early summer and by late summer they are everywhere. I see the large majority of these ants in Liberty and Montgomery counties but they are now reaching across county lines everywhere.
