Monomorium sp.


The species within the genus Monomorium are usually polygynous (having more than one queen per nest) and polydomous (having more than one nest). There are about 16 species in North America. While some of these species are native, others, such as the Pharaoh Ant (Monomorium pharaonis) are exotic and can be infuriating pests.
