I found out the hard way that ants love this stuff for colonizing. It's soft and easy to tunnel and move. Carpenter ants made a home of it in one of my window surrounds. The contractor "insulated" all of the voids with 2-part foam. After seeing huge black ants inside the house by that window I removed the trim and found thousands of ants around the whole window. I guess I should feel lucky, they didn't enter any of the framing so all I had to do was remove the foam and all of the ants (including the queen), stuff it with fiberglass then replace the trim. I have seen carpenter ants completely destroy a house over several decades. I'd hate to see what would happen if they did this and undercut a huge concrete slab in the process! Places around here just inject cement or mortar to raise slabs that have sunk.
