What are Acrobat Ants?
Acrobat ants are known for their unique ability to coil their abdomen like springing acrobats. They exhibit a light brown to black coloration with a distinctive heart-shaped abdomen. Commonly found in urban settings such as in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area, acrobat ants are notorious for invading homes, offices, buildings, and other establishments. Detecting signs of acrobat ant infestation involves identifying ant trails in electrical wires, posts, foundations, and pipes within walls. These ants can be found in woods close to leaky pipes and areas with high moisture content. Minor infestations are manageable with a few tools and elbow grease. However, in severe cases, they can damage electrical wires and pose potential hazards like short circuits.
