What Are Crazy Ants?


Crazy ants don’t travel together in a straight line. Instead, individuals move in a frantic, erratic, and/or jerky pattern. Their random movements cause them to appear “crazy.”


Not native to the United States, crazy ants were introduced from South America. Since their introduction, crazy ants have invaded Dallas, TX and the rest of the southern United States with vigor!


Crazy ants are a very small species of ant. The long, segmented body is covered in tiny hairs and is brownish-red to black with a gray sheen.
