ACROBAT ANT HABITAT
The acrobat ant can be found throughout the United States in various habitats, even at altitudes of up to 8,000 feet.
In the outdoors, acrobat ants usually nest in trees, under rocks or in logs, and in firewood. They create tunnels in decayed wood or build nests in tunnels carved out by other insects. They can find their way inside homes by trailing wires, plumbing, tree limbs, window frames, door thresholds, and other vulnerable spots. Once inside, they will nest in wall voids or wood that is subject to high moisture and fungal decay. They nest in wood previously damaged by other wood-boring insects. Acrobat ants are also drawn to Styrofoam insulation behind wood siding.
PEST THREAT LEVEL
Acrobat ants may bite when threatened and some species of this ant may emit an unpleasant odor when disturbed. These bites can cause minor pain, itching, redness, and swelling. Home remedies are frequently all that is necessary for symptom relief. Acrobat ants can also pose a risk to structures. They have been known to strip the insulation from electrical or telephone wires, which can cause short circuits.
