Hogarth's Pest Control specializes in all types of industries, residential and commercial.
Pavement Ants are found in cities all around the midwest. They’re about a half an inch long with two nodes with a red-brown head and thorax. These ants nest outside under rocks, at the edge of pavement, door stoops and patios. They move their colonies inside between the foundation and the still plate. Pavement Ants will eat other insects and seed. They store debris in the their colonies and when it’s time to expand they will kick the debris into piles made up of sand, seed coats, dead insect parts, and sawdust. Pavement Ants are not difficult to get rid of, and with proper inspection and identification Hogarth’s can eradicate these ants in a timely manner.
Tips for preventing Pavement Ants:
- Remove stones that could be sheltering ants. Practice proper Indoor sanitation and eliminate moist garbage. Caulk observed ant entrance points.
