Black Crazy Ant
They are also known as Longhorn crazy ant and are small, dark-colored insect. These ants are commonly called “crazy ants” because instead of following straight lines, they dash around erratically.
They are found in buildings in more temperate regions, making them one of the most widespread ant species in the world. This species cannot sting. However, this species can fire/shoot a formic acid spray from its abdomen when under attack by other insects or while attacking other insects.
Their acid is usually not used on humans and normally does not affect humans. These ants can be touched safely just like the common ghost ants.
