Types of Ants
Moisture Ants are brown to brownish yellow in color and about 1/8th of an inch long. They will invade homes from nests on the property while foraging for food. Occasionally, an outdoor colony will relocate inside in a bathroom, kitchen or wherever a water leak may be present. This species can often carry soil into the building, which it uses to construct a “carton” nest. Carton nests resemble hard clods of soil and may be fashioned around areas such as, plumbing pipes, sill plates or a wall studs. You may not notice a Moisture Ant infestation until you open up a wall or see the winged reproductive swarm, which can typically happen during late summer in the Pacific Northwest. This can cause a homeowner to panic when they see the winged ants pouring out of a window sill, kitchen or bathroom.
If you have a Moisture Ant problem, chances are it is a secondary symptom to an underlying issue with moisture damage that requires remediation. Chemical pesticides alone will not get rid of a Moisture Ant infestation however, periodic applications can definitely slow them down until a more permanent solution can be made. It is recommended to remove the source that has attracted them and replace the damaged material to completely rid your structure from Moisture Ants.
