Most ants found in Colorado are foragers, meaning they search for food and water to bring back to the established, outdoor colony. Following the line of marching ants may lead you to the nest. All ants have a “pinched” waist at about the middle of the body that distinguishes them from most other insects, including termites.

Pavement ants are one of the most commonly found ants in schools.
