Q&A Home

Peter from Champlin, Minnesota writes,

I have some small black ants in my house.

I dont believe they are carpenter ants because they are very small but I'm not sure. I don't have a lot of them, just a few that I've seen over the past month. I need help identifying the ant so I can place an order with the correct product to get rid of them. I have had small sugar ants in the past, maybe 2 years ago so or and haven't seen them (brown in color) since. I'd like to get product to take care of the black ants in the house and do some sort of exterior preventative as well so any help you can give me with the products I should get would be much appreciated.


We do carry some great professional strength products in our Ant Control Kits that will effectively eradicate many species of ants inside and outside the structure. We recommend that you have the ant identified locally through your Local Cooperative Extension. You may also submit photos (with a size reference and information on the state that you are located in) to us at support@domyownpestcontrol.com. We offer free expert advice and will gladly assist you in making a product recommendation that will fit your needs.
