Where do pavement ants nest?

Although the physical description above can help identify this ant species, it might be easier to know where pavement ants nest. As their name suggests, these ants nest in cracks and crevices near paved sidewalks, foundations, and driveways.

Pavement ants may also nest indoors in areas such as within walls, under floors, and near heat and moisture sources. 

What attracts pavement ants?

Pavement ants are attracted to food, moisture, and shelter. While gardens compost piles, and open trashcan are potential food sources for these ants, crumbs on the kitchen floor or grease build-up near your over, and other food indoors can attract pavement ants as well. 

Standing water, leaking pipes, and other sources of moisture (indoors and outdoors) will also be a strong attractant for pavement ants. 

If pavement ants find a way inside, they're likely to find hiding spots that are warm and where there is plenty of moisture. See above for a list of common indoor nesting sites. 

Are pavement ants dangerous?

Pavement ants are capable of biting, which can be painful, although this occurs infrequently and isn't a major concern.

As pavement ants dig their nests outside, the pavement or cement around them can become uneven and crumble.
