Pharaoh Ants: Pharaoh ants are very small yellow ants that move along electrical wires, so are commonly seen around switch plates, electrical outlets, where wires enter walls, and around appliances. If you think you have Pharaoh ants, do not spray them with liquid pesticides! When sprayed or otherwise disturbed Pharaoh ant colonies split-up and disperse, forming smaller colonies in many different areas (this process is called budding). Pharaoh ants must be eliminated by using specific baits and targeting the areas where they are active.
