Pavement Ant

Appearance

Dark brown to blackish; about 1/8" long.

Habitat

Pavement ants get their name because they make their nests in or under cracks in pavement. Colonies are usually easy to find due to the piles of displaced soil next to and on top of pavement. Indoors, pavement ants nest in walls, insulation and under floors. They like to travel under the edges of carpet next to the tack strip.

Diet

Pavement ants are opportunistic feeders that will “swarm” on foods that appear within their foraging range, and are therefore easily controlled with bait. Indoors, they feed on meats, nuts, cheese, honey, bread crumbs, meats, grease and pet bowls.

Pavement Ant Control

Individual pavements colonies can often be controlled using ant baits, but perimeter inspection and treatment are usually necessary for long-term pavement ant control. Their colonies are controlled by direct treatment of nests in the soil.
