Pavement ants are small, dark brown to black and 2.5 to 3 mm in length. They look like a small carpenter ant with red legs.

Nesting sites include beside and under sidewalks, patio blocks, building foundations, driveways, and landscaping beds. They frequently kick out visible sand and debris from these locations.

Mounds of displaced soil are often observed in areas of their nests. Once inside a building, they can travel along pipes and electrical wires as well as under the edges of carpets.

What To Do If You See Pavement Ants In Your Home?

Clean the area,

  • put away any food,
  • take away (remove from your home) any old food containers,
  • throughly wash the area with mild soap.
