Pavement Ant

Our remedy for pavement ant control

First, contact us. 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.

How to Identify an Acrobat Ant


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


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.


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.

Excellent service, thoughtful and careful

“Excellent service. They are thoughtful and careful with their care. I’ve been using them for 3 summer now and highly recommend them. Before hiring them, I tried to take care of the ants myself – consumer grade products didn’t do anything. I struggled for months – then I called Rose and they were gone right away.​.”
