How to Identify Crazy Ants

Discovered in 2002 by an exterminator in Texas, crazy ants, also called tawny ants or rasberry crazy ants, are easy to identify by their quick, erratic movements and tendency to form large swarms. Measuring at 3 millimeters long, they range from dark brown to black in color.

While they’re not considered dangerous, crazy ants can become a frustrating burden for the homes and businesses they infest. They’re known to crawl into and destroy electronics, such as televisions and laptops, and often crawl all over people. If you believe you’ve found crazy ants on your property, don’t hesitate to request a free inspection from U.S. Pest Protection.
