Pavement Ants

May 12, 2017

General Info: Pavement ants will eat just about anything: cheese, meat, nuts, bread, seeds, fruit, honey, and other insects.

  • Length:   1/16″ – 1/8″
  • Region Found:   Mostly in the Eastern US and Pacific Coast.
  • Residential Location:   Most likely to be found in masonry walls, meaning brick or concrete block walls.  They can also be found along pavement (surprise, surprise!) insulation, and near stones and rocks.
  • Random/Interesting Fact:  Pavement Ants are known to climb brick walls in excess of 30′ high in search of food for the colony.
  • Identification: Like many species of small ants, Pavement Ants are difficult to identify with the naked eye. If it’s small, brown, and found near bricks, pavement, or concrete, you might have a pavement ant.
