Ants are among the most common pests people deal with at their homes or businesses throughout the country. There are many species of ants that you may want to be aware of, and pavement ants may be on that list. Pavement ants are black or dark brown, oval-shaped, and about one-eighth of an inch. They do not bite, are not aggressive, and do not present a serious health risk. However, you should avoid and eliminate them because they have been known to contaminate human and pet food—and they’ll eat many things, including other insects, honeydew, bread, cheese, and more.
Pavement ants get their name because they often make their homes under pavement cracks outside. Other places you might find them include under stones and floors, next to buildings, and inside walls and insulation. Like many other species, pavement ants are attracted to moisture, so to help prevent them from infesting your space, reduce moisture in whatever way you can. You can remove standing water and clean up spills right away, for instance. Despite your best efforts, you probably won’t be able to eliminate pavement ants yourself because their nests are notoriously difficult to locate. If you notice pavement ants at your home or business, the best thing you can do is get professional ant control services.
