Pyramid Ants In South Florida

Pyramid Ants

Dorymyrmex Species

Pyramid ants are monomorphic and about or just under 1/18” long and vary in color from brown to reddish. Their common name is associated to the pyramid shape of their thorax.

Pryramid ants prefer to build nests in dry habitats. In South Florida homeowners often see them on driveways. This ant excavates the soil and place the sand particles around a single entrance hole forming a distinctive nest opening that resembles a small volcano crater.

Pyramid ants tend aphids and other honeydew producing insects for the sugary secretion. They are also aggressive predators of live and dead insects for the protein intake. This carnivorous ant can bite, but do not sting.

Pyramid ants can heavily infest an entire yard and colonies grow easily to a few thousand workers. There is one queen per colony.

Our house was invaded by ants. They were everywhere, even in my wife’s laptop, hundreds of them were coming out daily. So we decided to call Gotbugsikill, Juan showed up to our house and he explained to us why, what kind of ants and how he will treat them. Without hesitation, we gave it a try. He told us that the first few days after he puts the chemical, we will see an increase of ants and will slowly disappear. We did. We saw ants like we’ve never seen before but majority of them were dead. After a few days, we saw improvement. Laptop no longer have ants. Week by week, slowly disappeared. Haven’t seen them for awhile. Juan still calls us and checks on us most of the time. Overall great guy to have around when problem like these occurs. He even let us know that he was going away for a few weeks but he made sure to check on the Ant situation before he left, then checked back on us when he came back. I would recommend GOTBUGSIKILL to anyone that’s having these kind of problem.
