Camponotus floridanus (Formicidae) is one of the Camponotus species which is commonly referred to as the Florida carpenter ant. They often build their nests in wooden man-made structures and can cause major structural damage, to the extent where they are one of the most serious indoor pest species in their range of distribution from North Carolina to Florida and west to Mississippi.

The genome of C. floridanus (estimated 240mb) contains a high number of ant-specific (690) and species specific protein families (3,230). Ant-specific genes include those associated with the sensory perception of smell, G protein-coupled receptor activity and proteins involved in detoxification. In major and minor workers of this species there was also a 4-fold difference in the expression levels of several genes suggesting that the behaviour differences between the different castes may be partly encoded at the transcriptional level.
