Crazy Ants

What are Crazy Ants?

Crazy ants that are insane do not travel in a straight line. Instead, they move in a frenetic, unpredictable, and/or jerky manner. Their erratic motions give them an "insane" appearance.

Crazy ants were introduced from South America, as they are not native to the United States. Since their introduction, they have aggressively spread throughout your state and the rest of the southern United States.

Crazy ants are a kind of ant that are exceedingly small. The long, segmented body is coated with tiny hairs and is brownish-red to black with a gray sheen.
