Pavement ants are a common ant species in Wisconsin. They are actually an invasive species of ant that were brought over from Europe during early settlement. These tiny ants are very similar in appearance to little black ants. Pavement ants are often found nesting in or under pavement, hence their name. These ants will also host epic battles in the summer months as they try to expand their colonies into enemy ant territories. Like most ants, they love sweet and sugary substances.

Pavement ants make their nests in or under cracks in your driveway or walkways. They will form small mounds of soil which help keep their nest cool during the summer months. Pavement ants will also build nests indoors in walls or floors damaged by moisture.
