I use a spray from Lowes for my MH and sticks and bricks. Orthon indoor/outdoor. Does not smell or stain with 9 months protection. If we are on a long trip we take it with us, spray around the MH while parked. I have a 4 car garage i spray a line inside the doors and when a bug crosses it he has 4 feet to live! i spray outside edges of carpet, hard wood flooring, under the coach, even shurbs around 4 times a year. NEVER have bugs or ants! Check to be sure it's pet friendly..

I would catch one and take it to my local county extension office and they can probably tell you what it is and how to get rid of it.

Read that they were causing electrical equipment and appliances to short circuit. I would check with an exterminator.

We picked up an infestation of those ants last winter at Somerville Lake COE RV park in Texas: Rasberry crazy ant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Although they are tiny, thousands of them can be frightening!

Last year we had the Tawny Crazy Ants invade the IT basement section here at work. Ant poisons made for fireants are less effective on these. A wiki article says though they don't bite Humans they kill fireants! They like to nest inside walls making treatment more difficult.

We have some random ants so small we only notice them when they crawl across a computer, phone or IPad screen. They seem to like them.

Once a bunch of them got into a syrup container which wasn't quite snapped all of the way shut. So small we didn't notice them until at least 3 kids ate their pancakes. Talk about screaming!

That's like the old joke, what's worse than finding a worm in your apple?? Finding half a worm!
