Ants

Pavement Ant

pavement_ant

Size - About 1/8-inch long.

Color - Brown. The name is derived from it nesting in soil beneath concrete slabs, sidewalks, porch, and driveways.

Behavior – Colonies can be controlled using ant baits, however perimeter inspection and treatment are sometimes necessary. Habitat – Under the foundation and within hollow block walls. Occasionally, a colony may move dirt up into a wall to form a nest. When piles of soil or dirt appear from under baseboards or on top of a basement or garage floor, it is an indication that pavement ants may be present.

Control – A Select Pest Control professional can succesfully treat for these types of ants.

Tips - Seal cracks and voids in the exterior of your home to prevent ants from entering. Keep vegetation cut away from the foundation of your home. Avoid using items such as stones and landscape timbers next to your home's foundation. Keep layers of mulch in landscape beds less than 2 inches thick and at least 12 inches away from the foundation.
