As tiny as they are, ants can cause serious problems when infestations are left untreated. Most species of ants are primarily a nuisance and aren’t typically dangerous, however, a few species can be destructive and may pose health risks. Carpenter ants tunnel through wood structures and have the ability to hollow out support beams, while pharaoh ants and odorous house ants are carriers of disease and can contaminate food.

The following six ant species are found living in the Midwest:
- Carpenter Ants prefer to nest and excavate water-damaged wood.
