How Dangerous Are Pavement Ants?

Pavement ants are not aggressive, and are not known for venomous stings. They are considered more of a nuisance pest. Unfortunately, they are great explorers, and they have a wide, flexible diet that makes just about any food source in your home interesting to them. In fact, food availability is usually what brings pavement ants into your home. Pavement ants will contaminate any and all foodstuffs they infest, and they also pose the risk of contaminating any surface they walk across, like counters, cabinets, and dinnerware.
