Most pest species of these ants are yellow, but they can vary to dark brown. Species are monomorphic (3–4 mm) and can be identified by a round epinotal spiracle that distinguishes this group from thatching ants. Colonies are usually found in decayed logs, stumps, or soil. These ants feed on sweet materials, attend aphids for honeydew, and become a general annoyance factor around homes. Reproductive swarming occurs in late summer to early autumn. These ants are a widely distributed genus, containing several species of pest status that occur throughout the Pacific Northwest. Yellow ants and cornfield ants are collectively known as “moisture ants” in this region.

Primary Concerns with Moisture Ants

Moisture Ant ControlThese ants have frequently been associated with rotting wood in houses, but they should not be considered a structural pest.
