Hymenoptera: Formicidae, Linepithema humile.

The Argentine Ant is a single node, small, shiny, and brown ant with only one sized worker ant. The worker ants are usually 1/12 to 1/8 inch long. Occasionally they will reach as large as 1/4 inch in length. This ant is found throughout the Southeastern United States and Southern California. Eliminating these pests should be done by combining chemical and non-chemical pest control with the Integrated Perimeter Management (IPM) program perfected by the technicians at Absolute Pest Control. During the winter, The Argentine Ants are known to move into man-made structures. When crushed, the ants release a musky smell. This is one of the best ways to identify this particular species.
