I guess the name is self-explanatory.The pavement ant was introduced into North
America from Europe.It is a dark brown
creature, less than 4 millimeters in length.Just like other ants there is a pecking order.They have workers, alates (those with wings),
and of course, the queen herself where everyone gravitates.
The drone has one job in its short life (but it’s a fun
one!).It is to mate in the late spring
and summer and create lots of new pavement ants.They find a suitable nesting area and the eggs
will hatch.The thing about these little
pests is that they will eat everything in sight…other insects, people food, you
Now that spring is turning into summer watch your
sidewalks.Pavement ants may be starting

This may have been an old “hippie” phrase from the 1960’s. What we mean by it in Chicagoland is that when these winged creatures invade your property they need to be eradicated. Some see wasps as a benefit to the environment, but make no mistake about it, they are predatory flying pests.
There are generally two types of wasps…the solitary and the social. The social variety congregate in large numbers. The queens have been hibernating during the cold-weather months. They are much more hot-tempered than bees and should be treated accordingly. There is a specific time of day when a wasp nest should be eliminated.
A professional exterminator knows the time, the process, and what equipment to use to eliminate these potentially dangerous insects that can hurt or even kill your pets as well as your family.
