What Are Ghost Ants?

The ghost ant gets its name from its small size and pale color of its legs and abdomen, which make it difficult to see. These ants have dark heads and thoraxes. The workers are extremely small – less than 1/16 inch long. Like the odorous house ants, ghost ants give off a coconut-like odor when they are crushed. Foragers are seen in kitchens and bathrooms on sinks, counters, and floors.

Ghost ants are tropical ants that have been in south and central Florida for several years. They are easily transported in boxes, crates, potted plants and even in household goods that are being shipped. In northern states, these ants have been known to survive only in heated buildings and greenhouses.
