Pavement Ants. Harmless...But Still A Bother.


Pavements are found everywhere.

They're small, blackish in color and like to make nests in pavement cracks, hence the name. They're not picky eaters, but prefer a diet rich in protein.

Pavement ants in Cleveland are quite happy living outside. However, they can move indoors if they find an access. Once inside your home, pavement ants typically stay on the ground level and nest under the floors and inside walls.

What Do Pavement Ants Eat?
Pavement ants' favorite food are the crumbs on your kitchen floor. No matter how good you sweep, pavement ants will find those crumbs and food debris lodged in the cracks and crevices of your kitchen.


They also will attack your pet’s food bowls and may even climb on your kitchen counter, possibly contaminating your food preparation surfaces.
