The most common invasive ant in metro Atlanta is known as the Argentine ant. These are most likely the little guys you see in the corner of your cabinets or along the baseboard in your bedroom. The colony will usually form a line between their nest and a source of food or water they may have discovered. Often the infestation is due to the colony seeking to escape conditions such as flooding of their nest, or excessive heat, rather than what people might commonly assume to be an attraction to a messy environment.
Not to be confused with termites, there are some characteristics that easily set them apart. While both ants and termites might have wings, ant wings will be longer in front and shorter in back. Whereas, the termite's front and back wings are equal in proportion. A termite's waist is more rounded than that of an ant and is less apparent. Ants have three discernible body sections and their antennae tend to be curved as opposed to the termite's straightened antennae.
