Elongate Twig Ants

(Pseudomyrmex gracilis)

Appearance

Elongate Twig ants are bi-colored red to brown. They have a stinger and will sting when disturbed.

Size

Range from 5/16-inch to 2/5-inch in length.

Behavior

Elongate Twig ants are large, slender, solitary ants that are often seen on vegetation. They will sting when disturbed, such as when trapped between clothes or skin.

Habitat

Elongate Twig ants have single queen nests, which contain few individuals. They nest in hollow twigs and dried grasses barely wide enough for two or three ants to pass one another, and are usually placed high up in large trees. They forage on live insects, and collect honeydew from sap-sucking insects.

Interesting Facts

Elongate Twig ants are wasp-like in appearance and move in quick, short dashes.
