False Honey Ant

The false honey ant (Prenolepis imparis) is also called winter ant because these animals remain active at low temperatures during the winter months. This makes them visible to us, especially when they invade our homes in search of sweets or to nest. Inside the home they are usually seeking sugar meals such as juices, soda, candy and other food sources. These ants become less active as the weather warms, and appear to do very little feeding during the hot days of summer. They mobilize again with the return of cooler temperatures in the fall, so know might be a good time to look out for them. They live in small colonies, containing only a few thousand individuals, with a well-defined caste system. Most queens and male ants have wings.
