This species of ants typically nest underground near foundations, under trees, bushes, and dirt piles. They are also attracted to electrical boxes and HVAC units, which can also be common entry points into the home. Usually these nests are trampled upon by accident and are quickly noticed when they start to bite with their pinchers, which can leave red, irritated welts on the skin.
