During the spring months, pavement ants will attempt to conquer new areas and attack nearby enemy colonies. These attacks can sometimes lead to huge sidewalk battles among the ants. They swarm in spring and mate in flight.

PAVEMENT ANT HABITAT
Found throughout the United States.
Pavement ant nests are usually located outdoors under pavement, under stones, next to buildings, or under cracks. They can occasionally be found in structures under floors, in walls, and in insulation. They enter homes through slab cracks and similar openings.
PEST THREAT LEVEL
Pavement ants are not a threat to humans directly but can contaminate foods. Because they forage for dead insects, rats, and rodents outside, when they enter your home, they may carry disease-inducing organisms. Pavement ants have the potential to sting and bite humans if the nest is threatened.
The bite is basically harmless and may cause pain, redness, swelling, or inching. Most bites are harmless but there is always a threat for a more serious allergic reaction.
