The Latin name for Pavement Ants is Tetramorium Caespitum and while these ants are native to the European continent, they are also found in the North American region where they thrive as pests. Pavement ants made their way into America through the ships that travelled from Europe to the United States in 16th and 17th centuries. These vessels were filled with soil that acted as ballast and when they reached the ports, this soil unloaded. Thus, this was how these ants conveniently made their way to new territory, earning a name for themselves as pests.
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH Pavement ANTS WE CAN HELP.
The name Pavement Ants is mostly put to use in North America and is derived from the tendency of these ants to build colonies along the pavement. These colonies are inhabited by queen ants, alates, which are drones and new queen ants, and worker ants.Pavement ants are quite the celebrities too, considering that they were sent into space to the International Space Station as part of a study!
These ants are quite aggressive in nature and their colonies are known to attack each other and engage in fierce fights. These fights usually end in death and in some cases, thousands of ants are killed in these battles for territory.

Appearance and Characteristics
Pavements ants measure between 2.5 millimeters and 4 millimeters and are dark brown to blackish in color. Parallel furrows on the head and thorax as well as their size distinguish them from other ants. The ants that reproduce also have wings and their size is at least twice that of the regular worker ants. You can tell the difference between male and female easily. Females have easily noticeable spines on their back while males don’t.
In the spring, the reproductive ants begin the process of reproduction by mating high in the air. However, since a sufficiently heated environment is the primary need for these ants to begin work on their colony, certain heated buildings may experience the onset of an ant colony even in the middle of winter.

Pavement Ant Colony
After the mating ritual is complete, the queen ants burrow into the soil and lay the eggs after which the worker ants begin to emerge, this process usually takes around a couple of months or more. Soon, there is a full-fledged colony on your hands.
The favorite locations for pavement ants to set up their colonies are under the slabs of sidewalks, under building slabs or even under large rocks. You can trace Pavement ant nests by following their trail. The nest location will usually have heaps of excavated sand or soil particles. At times, the size of these heaps as well as their distribution will give you affair idea of the expanse of the colony.
Pavement Ants as Pests
Pavements Ants usually stick to the outdoors and feed on nectar, fruits, seeds, dead insects and grease. However, in the absence of food outside, these ants may enter the household too. Foraging ants are often seen loitering around the house and if they find a food source, you will soon see a long trail of pavement ants. Primarily though, Pavement Ants stick to the outdoors, especially when it comes to their colonies. Effective service and reliable solutions.
