Pavement Ants

(Tetramorium caespitum)

Appearance

Pavements ants are light brown to black in color, and have pale legs and antennae.

Size

1/8-inch long.

Behavior

Pavement ants are opportunistic feeders that will "swarm" on foods within their foraging range. Outdoors, this ant feeds on insects, honeydew, seeds, and plant sap. Once inside your home, they will feed on meats, nuts cheese, honey, bread crumbs, meats, and grease.

Habitat

Pavement ant colonies are fairly small and contain several queens. Outdoors, these ants nest in soil, under stones, by slabs next to buildings, and in pavement cracks. Once inside your home, they will occasionally nest in walls, insulation, and under floors. Colonies will move near a heat source in winter, and will often follow pipes through slabs to access buildings.

Interesting Facts

Pet food bowls are common foraging sites for Pavement ants.
