Ghost Ant

Ghost Ants are tiny ants with a dark head and thorax and a pale abdomen. Ghost ant colonies are found in switch plates and electrical outlets and in other dark voids. They can nest either outdoors or indoors. Colonies of ghost ants have many queens. The workers are small and difficult to see, but one can follow trails from their nest to food. Ghost ants can tend aphids and are considered sweet-feeding ants.
