Black Carpenter Ant

(Camponotus pennsylvanicus)

This species of ant grows to no more than 1/4″-1/2″ in length, and yet still is one of the larger species of ants. Their colonies can contain well over 10,000 ants and forage as far as 100 yards away from the nest. Highly adaptable, these ants are known to eat anything and everything, though preferring sweet things like nectar, sugar and fruit juice.
