These ants are scavengers, anything they find, they'll eat within their territory.
They prefer sugary food; they also store seeds and grains in their nests for later use.
They have a mutualistic relationship with several other species of caterpillar.
Pavement ants drink the nectar produced by the caterpillars, and in return ants provide shelter and protect the caterpillars from predators.
