How to get rid of this?

To get rid an acrobat ant problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

How Did I Get Acrobat Ants?

Acrobat ants typically live outdoors in nests within dead or decaying wood. However, the pests may invade homes through foundation cracks or gaps around wiring and pipes. Also, tree branches that grow close to or in contact with the house provide an entryway. Once indoors, acrobat ant colonies nest in insulation and woodwork, making their way into pantries in search of stored foods.

Homes with previous termites or carpenter ant infestations are also at risk for acrobat ants. The pests often nest inside wood that already contains insect tunnels or water-damaged areas.

How Serious Are Acrobat Ants?

Acrobat ant nests need moisture, so their presence can be a sign of leaks within the home. Homeowners may find lines of the insects travelling from nests to food sources. Also, adult acrobat ants create annual mating swarms. The result can be alarming when the pests abruptly emerge in large numbers.
