Paratrechina Longicornis also known as Black Crazy Ants. This is a small dark brown / blackish ant that has a faint bluish flash in bright light. Its common name arises from its characteristic erratic and rapid movement. The workers are 3 mm in size and are notable for their very long legs and antennae. They don’t have a sting but bite and eject formic acid onto the wound. The queens are notably larger than the workers at about 6 mm and very prolific.
