Pavement ants choose to nest within pavement such as sidewalks or street cracks, hence why they are named pavement ants. These ants are very intrusive and will invade other ant colonies to expand theirs or create colonies in areas that are difficult to penetrate. They are attracted to moisture and sweet foods and have the ability to contaminate food sources, so they should be avoided.
