Odorous House Ant

Tapinoma Sessile

Description:

tiny black ants that stink when killed

Habitat:

my house

Notes:

Although many people consider them pests, i love all living things, even ants. Ants live in piles of dirt called anthills. There is one big ant called the queen. She lays all the eggs. The males mate with the queen. The queen and males hardly ever leave the anthill. The workers go out to find food.
