Pavement Ants Exterminator
Do you think you may have a problem with pavement ants? Pavement ants are widely prevalent pests that primarily invade outdoor areas.
As their name implies, Pavement ants tend to take over places around parking lots, driveways, or sidewalks and may also inhabit other sheltered ground areas, like parks or unused sandboxes. Though relatively harmless, these ants multiply quickly, and their swarms over pavement can be very unsightly.

So, if you are in the Clearwater, Palm Harbor, Dunedin, St. Petersburg, Largo, or Tampa area, you will want to contact Drive-Bye right away when discovering pavement ants.

Pavement Ant Appearance
Pavement ants are small black-brown ants. Their legs and antennae appear a lighter brown color, and the abdomen is solid black. You may notice them for the mounds of dirt they push up in pavement cracks, along curbs, in sidewalk joints, and under potted plants.
Pavement Ant Behavior
These swarming ants appear in large colonies predominantly in June and July. They eat a diet of sweets, fruit, insects, greasy foods, and pet food. Pavement ants appear in outdoor areas like pavements, under stones, and next to buildings. Sometimes they will wander into walls and under floors. They move in small motions, and their trails are most visible when it is dark out.
Colonies may be foraging around foundations of the home, under brick pavers, or around large rocks. Inside you may locate pavement ants near baseboards, plumbing connections, and along the seams of carpet.
Pavement Ant Treatment
These pesky ants are mainly active at night, so treatment sometimes is best served in the early evening hours. The professional at Drive-Bye Exterminators will use a specialized bait to drive the ants out. Typical insect repellents will only spread the problem.
When using sugar or protein/grease-based bait, the ants will take the bait back to the queen, essentially wiping out the colony.
