If you have ever been strolling along and noticed a soft dirt mound with reddish looking ants scurrying in and out of it, you might find it much safer to just go around. There is a good chance that what you are witnessing are not regular, every day ants. These are probably fire ants, and they are nothing that you want to put your foot into, so to speak. Hawaii is a haven for all creatures great and small; and since the fire ant was introduced, they have taken hold in a big way.
There are quite a few species of ants that live in Hawaii. Fortunately, most of them prefer to live away from humans. But, not all of them. There are four ant species that seem to like hanging out with us. They encroach on our lawns, survey our exterior walls, and they find ways to get into our homes and drive us crazy. Which four? We're glad you asked.
