    I got these in my kitchen. Does anyone know if they are pharaoh ants? I tried some regular ant traps but they didn't work.

    The tape measure marks are 1/32".

  2. Definitely not a pharao ant. Looks like a ghost ant (Tapinoma melanocephalum) to me.

    Cheers

    I got some Ghost ant traps. Hopefully it's the right ones. The only other ant I could find close is the Thief ant and the treatments for both are completely different.
