What do pavement ants look like?

Pavement ants are dark brown, sometimes black ants that usually get about 1/8” long.  Like their name suggests, they hang around pavement.

Do pavement ants bite?

Yes, they can and will bite if threatened, but won’t go out looking for a fight.  They are not aggressive like other kinds of ants.

Where do pavement ants live?

As you may suspect from their name, pavement ants build nests in or under cracks in pavement. They can infest structures also.

Hazards

Halting

The best way to avoid pavement ants is to keep your property cleaned up.  Never allow standing water, as ants and other pests are attracted to moisture.  Trim trees and other vegetation away from the side of any structures, as ants use these as superhighways to enter your house.  See a professional about pest control in New Jersey today if you suspect pavement ants.
