What Are Acrobat Ants?
Acrobat ants are small, brown to black ants belonging to the genus Crematogaster. Known for their unique heart-shaped abdomen and the ability to raise it over their heads, resembling a gymnast performing an acrobatic feat, these ants are typically found in various environments worldwide. Acrobat ants commonly nest in decaying wood or moist areas and feed on a variety of food sources, including honeydew from aphids and other insects. While they are not known for aggressive behavior, acrobat ants can become a nuisance when they invade homes in search of food. Identifying and managing acrobat ant infestations is essential to preventing structural damage and maintain a pest-free environment.
Acrobat Ant Identification
Identifying acrobat ants involves recognizing their small size, typically ranging from 2 to 5 millimeters, and their distinct heart-shaped abdomen. These ants are generally brown to black in color and have a segmented appearance. The unique characteristic that sets them apart is their ability to raise their abdomen over their heads, resembling an acrobatic pose. Acrobat ants often nest in decaying wood or moist areas, making their identification crucial for effective pest management.
How to Prevent Acrobat Ants?
Preventing acrobat ant infestations involves implementing measures to deter these ants from entering your space. Start by sealing any cracks, gaps, or openings in windows, doors, and walls to eliminate potential entry points. Keep living spaces clean, especially kitchens, by promptly cleaning up food crumbs and spills. Additionally, address any moisture issues, as acrobat ants are attracted to damp environments. Regularly inspect and trim vegetation around the exterior of your property, minimizing contact points with trees and shrubs.
Are Acrobat Ants Dangerous?
While acrobat ants are generally not considered aggressive, they can become a nuisance when foraging for food indoors. Acrobat ant stings are not known to be particularly painful. However, if threatened or handled, acrobat ants may use their mandibles to defend themselves, resulting in minor bites that can cause slight discomfort. Though acrobat ant bites are not typically harmful, individuals with allergies or sensitivities may experience more pronounced reactions.
How to Get Rid of Acrobat Ants?
Getting rid of acrobat ants involves a multi-faceted approach. Start by identifying and sealing entry points, such as cracks and gaps in windows, doors, and walls. Keep living spaces clean by eliminating food crumbs and spills promptly. Address any moisture issues to discourage ant activity, as acrobat ants are attracted to damp environments. Baits containing insecticides specifically formulated for ant control can be strategically placed to disrupt colonies. If the infestation persists or becomes challenging to manage, seeking the assistance of professional pest control services, like those offered by Schopen Pest Solutions, ensures a targeted and effective solution for eliminating acrobat ants and preventing their return.

Here’s What Some Satisfied Customers Have to Say
Schopen was quick to respond to my initial inquiry and they accommodated a change in my
schedule. Luke arrived 10 minutes early and got right to diagnosing the issue. The source of the tiny
critters was found and treated. What a relief! I could not be more pleased with a company and the
service. (Office staff on the phone Kimm and Kiara were professional and helpful.) Thank you!!!

The guy called at the beginning of the time frame window and told me when he would be coming. It
is so nice to get a courtesy call when you have pets and kids. He was efficient and took care of what
Kevin did an excellent professional job with the required inspection. We then hired him to treat our
home for spiders. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
We hired Schopen to deal with mice we began seeing recently. They were on time, and the Tech Corey was super awesome! He was very informative and explained everything. Listened to our concerns and gave good information back. He found potential entry points and filled them. We had hired a different company before them and wasn't satisfied. Corey went behind them and found some things the other company should have. We have already noticed that there is barely any activity. best part of it, they don't try to lock you into a contract like most pest control companies do, They let you decide what you are comfortable with.
This customer rated you highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and work quality.
This company was very responsive. Once they arrived at my house the workers were very friendly, explained the situation, and how follow up consultations worked. After the first and second follow up visit the company called to see if we had any other questions. Which was very thoughtful.
