Similarly to other ant species, pavement ants begin their lives outside. These insects are the same ones that are known to flood fields and crash picnics but they are keen to creep and crawl indoors. Pavement ants are known to make their homes along the edges of sidewalks, driveways and along the surfaces of hard structures and foundations. In an increasingly urbanized environment, ants have a lot of leg room. While the great outdoors might work for a bit, all pests will eventually go out in search of resources like food or warm temperatures. There might be ant colonies forming quietly around your property, filling everything from cracks and crevices to wall voids.
No pest is a good pest but, as always, some are worse than others. Pavement ants do not burrow through construction materials, they can still have a negative impact on overall conditions. The habits of these particular insects are to burrow into damp spaces, namely underground. One tunnelling insect might not seem dangerous but hundreds of them dislodging dirt can lead to uneven or broken concrete. No, ants are not snapping concrete slabs in half but unbalanced weight distribution and environmental factors can lead to unnecessary breakage. In addition to causing potential structural damage, ants spread bacteria all over sensitive areas, like kitchens. Ants prefer to share food sources with their human hosts but as they are foraging for food, they are spreading bacteria. Any bacteria within the home is bad news but it is even worse for commercial spaces and restaurants. Seeking out professional pavement ant control can nip these problems in the bud and keep property owners, visitors and clients healthy and happy.
