Little Black Ant
Behavior – Little black ants are usually seen around homes
following well-defined trails between the nest and food and water sources.
They feed on a wide variety of foods, but the workers are partial to the
sweet honeydew produced by aphids, scales, and mealybugs found feeding on
many trees and plants. Fruit trees, roses, and many shrubs serve as hosts
for aphids and may contribute to ant infestations in homes and other
buildings. Most infestations inside are the result of workers searching
for food. On occasion, a colony or part of a colony may establish itself
inside a wall, behind brick veneer or beneath the carpet by a doorway.
