Pavement Ant

The pavement ant is named for it’s preference to nest under sidewalks, or in cracks in cement. They are small ants, less than 1/8″ long, ranging from brown to black in color. Their legs are lighter in color than their body, which may be helpful in identifying them. It is common to see a mound or anthill around the cracks in cement where these ants live. Although not typical, pavement ants can nest in homes. They have been known to nest in wall voids, or cracks in masonry especially in warmer areas of the house. These ants aren’t picky eaters, and will feed on almost anything in the kitchen – making them a good candidate for baiting.
