Detecting the pavement ant
A small ant that’s brownish or blackish in colour, the pavement ant, which lives in colonies, usually builds its nest under paved walkways and in cracks in the asphalt. It can even settle under concrete slabs and in the empty spaces in structures, which makes pavement ant extermination more difficult. Its presence can be identified by the mounds of sand that indicate the entrance to the nest. The pavement ant is attracted by sweet and fatty foods, which constitute the basis of its diet. Outside, the pavement ant is primarily encountered in June and July, but it can appear in any season inside your home.
