Pavement Ants Control
Pavement ants get their name because they typically make their nests in or under cracks in pavement, however they occasionally infest structures. If you are seeing small ants inside your home or business, take a look outside and see if there are a lot of ants adjacent to the foundation.
If so, this is usually the source of the infestation. An exterior treatment, coupled with either baiting or spraying inside, will usually rid you of these small pest ants.
These ants do not pose a public health risk, but they can contaminate food and should be avoided. They are not aggressive, but can bite and sting. Pavement ants will eat almost anything, including insects, seeds, honeydew, honey, bread, meats, nuts and cheese.

Preparing for a pavement ant treatment requires minimal effort. A good cleaning to remove any food attractants is always a good idea when dealing with small ants. If they are infesting your kitchen, emptying and cleaning cabinets is necessary. Don’t forget to pull out the refrigerator and stove! Once cleanup is complete, all we need is access to the infested area. We use a combination of ant bait materials and sprays to treat the interior and exterior areas as necessary. You’ll need to stay out of the spray treatment areas for up to 4 hours while the product dries. Contact our office for full preparation details.
This slow moving ant enters buildings through cracks in the foundation and similar openings in search of food, with greasy and sweet materials preferred. Sanitation and good home maintenance are the key to preventing pavement ants.
