Moisture ants are a group of ants that are attracted to damp or moist environments. They are commonly found in areas where moisture is present, such as near leaky pipes, damp basements, or in soil around homes and buildings. There are many different species of moisture ants, but they are generally small to medium-sized ants that can range in color from brown to black to yellow. Some common moisture ant species include the velvety tree ant and the yellow ant.
Moisture ants play an important role in their ecosystem by helping to break down decaying organic matter, such as fallen leaves and dead insects. However, they can also become a nuisance when they enter homes or buildings in search of food or water. In some cases, moisture ants can cause damage to structures if they are nesting in the walls or other areas of the building.
