Identification: Field ants are 1/8-3/8" in length. Their color is brown, black, reddish or any combination of these colors.
Habits: Field ants generally build their nest in the yard making small mounds. When infestations are heavy the ants will enter a structure in search of food.
Control: The best method of control is to protect the home with a barrier of residual pesticide. Monroe Pest Control Co. Inc. can rid you of a field ant infestation, usually in one trip and we warranty our work.
