Ghost Ant

Ghost Ants are hard to see because they are tiny and pale with one node. The front half is dark, the back half and legs are light. Significant pest in Florida and Hawaii. In northern states, it is sometimes found in greenhouse infested plants shipped from Florida. Ghost ants usually nest outdoors, but they build colonies behind baseboards, in wall voids, in cabinets of buildings where they find food, feeding on dead insects, sweets, and other food.
