Threat


Though unable to sting and not known to cause structural damage like carpenter ants, sugar ants are capable of biting and often travel in large groups to collect food from previously identified sources. In addition to posing a biting threat and gathering food en masse, sugar ants can contaminate indoor areas where people eat or prepare meals. When collecting food from an indoor source like a kitchen or pantry, the foraging insects may transfer dirt, bacteria, and other unsanitary materials to countertops, shelves, and edible items.
