Are you seeing ants? Well you're not the only one, April is a common time of year to spot them. Some will say it's “ant season”, but fact is, there is no single “ant season.” Ants may choose to enter your home at any time of year. Besides being an annoyance, their job is to seek shelter from the elements and forage for food, whether that means rain or shine.
One of the more common ants found in Sacramento is the Odorous House Ant. These are tiny dark brown ants that are frequently spotted indoors this time of year. Like the name suggests, they have a unique rotten coconut/spoiled milk smell when crushed.
Besides making you really popular at parties, knowing this trick will help you identify what type of ant you are dealing with "in a pinch"... No pun intended.
