Ant Photos

Pavement ants are nuisance pests found primarily in the northeastern US and throughout Canada. Their name derives from their tendency to build nests underneath and inside the cracks of sidewalks, driveways and slab foundations. As aggressive colonizers, they often wage war against nearby colonies in the summertime, leaving behind hundreds of small, dark corpses across concrete surfaces in the aftermath of the conflict.
