Identification of Odorous House Ants

Odorous house ants are quite small and measure about an inch in length. They have dark brown or black bodies and an unevenly shaped thorax when viewed from the side. Their name derives from the pungent odor they emit when crushed; a rotten coconut-like smell. Unlike some other ant species, odorous house ants don’t have mandibles or stingers to ward off trouble. When odorous house ants are disturbed, they run around erratically and spray their smelly odor from tiny anal gland sacs in their rear ends.
