Ants are some of the most widely recognized and common insects to invade homes. While they're tiny and barely register alone, a colony of ants can be a huge problem.
Odorous House Ants Odorous house ants are a well known household pest in Oklahoma. They are a uniform brown to black color and are discernible by the rotten odor they emit upon being threatened or squashed. They give off a sickly bleu cheese or coconut smell. Though odorous house ants aren't poisonous or dangerous to physical safety, their insatiable sweet tooth can turn them into an enormous nuisance. These ants are drawn to anything sweet and fashion their colonies around obtaining it and like to build inside walls, around heaters, or in crevices when they're indoors. These colonies can be made up of 100 to 100,000 ants.
