Odorous House ants are another common ant in our area of Texas. It gets its name from the pungent, "rotten -coconut like" odor given off when it's smashed. They typically live inside of wall voids around hot water pipes and heaters, around sinks, cupboards, etc.. Outside they will live in the nest of larger ants mostly under objects. Odorous House ants prefer to feed on sweets such as honeydew but will also eat foods high in protein and grease such as cheese and meats. Once again locating the nest is very important when trying to treat for theses ants. Eliminating the available food source is very important as well for a succesful treatment.
