Pavement Ant Identification (Two Node Ant)

Pavement Ant (Tetramorium caespitum)

Tetramorium caespitum

Description of workers

Small workers, around 1/8-inch (2.5 to 3 mm); light to dark brown or blackish. The head and thorax is furrowed by parallel lines. These ants have one pair of spines on the thorax and a sting on the tip of the abdomen.


Pavement ants get their name because they often nest under sidewalks, driveways and building foundations. A mound of displaced soil along a paved area is probably a sign of pavement ant activity. During the winter, pavement ants may nest inside structures near a heat source.

Pavement ants are trailing ants and feed on a wide variety of foods including dead insects, greasy foods, seeds and sweets, including the honeydew of aphids.


Management includes locating and appropriately treating colonies. Commercial baits have been shown to be effective.
