Acrobat Ant Facts

A-Tex Pest Management of Austin, Texas provides Acrobat Ant control to commercial businesses and residential homes locally and in surrounding areas. Acrobat ants are so named because of their habit of acrobatically raising their abdomen above their head when they are startled. Their abdomen appears heart-shaped and there are several different species. Typically, they are small and often emit pungent odors. Their diet consists of sweets, honeydew, sugary waste, and other insects.

Are Acrobat Ants Wood Destroying Insects?

Acrobat ants will move in and clean out the galleries that other wood destroying organisms such as carpenter ants and termites, have made in the wood. Because of their wood boring habits, acrobat ants are considered wood destroying insects. If you find acrobat ants in your home, it is therefore likely a symptom of other wood destroying organisms and also a wood structure problem. As these ants are normally found hidden in the voids of a home, a professional exterminator is needed to eradicate them.

Do Acrobat Ants Bite?

If disturbed, acrobat ants will bite inject a small amount of venom which will cause the skin to itch and burn. If you get bitten, as with most bites, wash the site to prevent infection and avoid scratching. Basic over-the-counter medications may help stop the itching and alleviate the pain.
