General Household Ant Pests
A complete list of the ants of the world or even the ants known to exist in the United States would be too exhaustive to list here. General Household Ant Pests are those that are most commonly encountered by those responsible for pest control in homes, farms, restaurants and other structures. (Other ants not encountered by pest controllers might be listed due to frequently asked questions or merely because of an ant species being an oddity.) By clicking on the common name of an ant you will be taken to an article containing material that is relevant to the identification, habits, range and control of that particular pest. Ant pest control can involve structural change, the use of different bait formulations or by using a combination of insecticide materials such as sprays, dusts and aerosols.
The correct identification of your particular pest will result in better control of that pest. You will usually save money, time and materials by approaching any single ant pest armed with sufficient knowledge of the ant and the correct or suggested method of control.
