These tiny imported ants are notorious for their territorial and aggressive behavior. Their dome shaped mounds serve as home to thousands of these predators who are quick to bite and swarm any potential threat.

Some of the more common species in the Houston area include the Southern House spider, Funnel Web Grass spider, and the Common House Spider.
