These ants, like all North American Dorymyrmex, thrive in hot, open xeric habitats. Workers are opportunistic predators that can quickly recruit many individuals to newly discovered food. Their diet is quite varied. Foragers will readily imbibe honeydew, or any nutritious liquids they encounter, but will also feed on vertebrate carcasses.
