Worker ants are 1/16" 1/8" long and Queens are 1/4" long and black in color. The pavement ant gets its name from often nesting in pavement cracks.
Pavement ant colonies are moderately large to larger in size containing 3-4,000 ants and will forage in trails up to 30 feet from their nest. Inside, the pavement ant will nest in walls, cracks in expansion joints, under baseboards, under floors, masonry and insulation.
Outside nesting may occur under stone, cracks in pavement and next to structures. The pavement ant will feed on anything, other insects, honeydew, seeds, plant sap, cheese, bread, nuts and even meat.
Most infestations of Pavement ants can be controlled with Clark's Year Round Pest Control. However, in cases of heavy, difficult infestations a combination of residual barriers and baits may be used.
