Fire Ants In Georgia

Fire Ants have a reddish-brown head and thorax with a black rear segment (although there may be variations in color). This type of ant varies in size, ranging from 1/16 – 1/4 inches in length. Fire ant workers have a venom-injecting stinger as well as mandibles used for biting and are most commonly found outdoors, although they can enter your home in search of food.

Carpenter Ants In Georgia

Carpenter Ants pose a particular threat to home and property owners because, as wood-destroying insects, they can cause significant structural damage. Often confused for termites, these ants are identified by elbowed antennae, a pinched or constricted waist, and a front pair of wings that is longer than the back pair.
