Exotic Ants in Mississippi – species pages

As time permits, I try to put together a species page or two about ants here in the Southeast on my Ants of the Southeastern United States website. As it happens, I currently have a wonderful research associate, Ryan J. Whitehouse,  helping out with our ant work this year, which means we are making some progress. I decided to prioritize our list of exotic ant from Mississippi as many of these species are pests. We currently have 30 exotic species in the state, almost 17% of the total 188 species we know about.

Read more about the exotic species in Mississippi at my page: Exotic Ants of Mississippi.
