Like most bugs, ghost ants love humidity. To pests, humid spaces signal water and food all in one place. Outside, ghost ants live in damp soil, in and around decomposing plant matter like leaves and logs, and in potted plants. Inside your home, you’re most likely to find ghost ants around your shower or bathroom sink, behind your baseboards, or in and around your cabinets. Most experts believe ghost ants find their way into homes by way of the tiny cracks in your window or door frames.
We’ve got good news and bad news about the realities of a ghost ant infestation in your home. The good news is, ghost ants don’t pose any immediate risk to your family or your home. Aside from being a nuisance, they don’t bite or eat away at your walls. They can, however, be incredibly difficult to control and should be eliminated quickly. The biggest risk they pose to your family is their ability to bring bacteria into your home which they may then track onto surfaces and food items.
