What is the Small black ant that gets into your house ? I’m new and was curious of the “scientific” term for them, thanks 🤙
Also I’m not sure how’s to add photos to these threads

Without pictures, location and accurate measurements we won't be able to give you a proper answer.

At a guess I would say they are Tapinoma sessile as they are very common house invading ants in the Eastern US.

I'd bet the farm it's Tapinoma sessile.
