Where To Spot Pavement Ants
These insects make their homes under and along concrete and cements structures. This could mean sidewalks, driveways, foundations, or retaining walls. During winter months, however, ants need to find a heat source. Warm environments allow populations to spread out. As these ants are quite small, it is not difficult to find their way into homes. Even the smallest of cracks allows entry. Although Penticton is partially shielded by the mountainous surroundings, its proximity to water brings cold air shifts inward and toward the city. These bursts of cold push the migration indoors toward the heated interiors.
Pavement ants can survive on a very wide range of what can hardly been considered food. They are attracted to sweet substances, greasy and starchy substances as well as other dead insects and organic debris. Once a food source is located, these insects are in it for the long-haul. Ants hunker down and make camp close enough that they have direct access to resources.
