                         Pavement Ant

       The pavement ant is a common household pest. Its name comes from the fact that colonies usually make their homes in pavement. It is distinguished by one spine on the back, two nodes on the petiole, and grooves on the head and thorax . The species is native to Europe, but was introduced to North America in the 18th century.

        During early spring, colonies attempt to conquer new areas and often attack nearby enemy colonies. These result in huge sidewalk battles, sometimes leaving thousands of ants dead. Because of their aggressive nature, they often invade and colonize seemingly impenetrable areas. In summer time the ants dig out the sand in between the pavements to vent the nests.

Inspection for Pavement ant

Pavement ants can often be seen foraging outdoors during daylight hours, but more ant trails can be observed after dark.
Upon initial inspection, the soil displaced by a pavement ant colony is usually quite evident around any outdoor concrete object: curbs, driveways, sidewalks, landscaping, brick patios, etc.  In many cases, the loose soil can be seen along cracks or expansion joints of driveways and other such objects.  Their colonies can also be found adjacent to the foundations or skirting of homes.  When trying to locate all possible outdoor colonies, use a small hand rake to gently pull back mulching materials to expose the ants.  Inspect around the edges of (and beneath, if possible) any logs or large rocks.  In a sense, leave no stone unturned.  In severe infestations, a number of objects can harbor many different pavement ant colonies.  Each of these colonies or ant beds need to be located and treated in order to kill pavement ants and to stop their migration indoors.
