Pavement ants might prefer to live in cool, damp spaces but that does not stop them from entering your home. Despite their size, pavement ants can cause a lot of damage to both the exterior of your property and your person.
Pavement ants have earned their name due to to their living conditions. When you seem small dirt mounds lining the sides of hard surfaces around your property, there is cause for concern. These small mounds are not just collected dirt but they are small, self-contained ant colonies. These ants move from one established colony to another, searching for resources and digging tunnels as they do. These tunnels move around and under patio foundations, driveways, sidewalks and paving stones. Over time, these tunnels displace more and more earth that runs under these surfaces. Do not think sinkholes but more of an even surface area. This unevenness combined with rapidly changing weather patterns can cause cracks and breaks to concrete. By removing these pests as soon as possible, you are limiting the potential threat of costly repairs or replacements.
In addition to being a threat to your property, pavement ants can make their way inside your home or business and bring bacteria with them. As they crawl over surfaces or food preparation stations, ants can leave behind harmful bacteria. The germs left behind can lead to food poisoning or other intestinal issues.
