Natural History: C. decipiens nests in wall spaces and joints of wood structures. I once collected it foraging outward into a lawn from a nest in the trunk of an old apple tree. The habits are not well reported, but I have found it be a shy, perhaps mostly nocturnal forager, with a penchant for sweets such as those emitted by hummingbird feeders, membracids on garden sunflower leaves, and aphids on fruit tree foliage. As evidenced by a large nest collection containing all castes from a wooden shed I tore down one early spring day, alates of this species are apparently reared in late summer and fall, but do not fly until the following spring, as with other Camponotus.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 1 times found in hardwood thicket, 2 times found in log w/myrmecine ants, 2 times found in Mixed hardwood forest, 1 times found in Live oak woodland, 2 times found in scrub and hammock, 1 times found in Mesquite- acacia woodland, 1 times found in oak woodland, 1 times found in Palm- hardwood forest, 1 times found in riparian woodland, 1 times found in mesquite and Celtis(?) scrub, ...
Collected most commonly using these methods or in the following microhabitats: 1 times hand collecting, 2 times in wood, 4 times search, 1 times dead branch, 1 times Live Oak Tank, 1 times On live oak, 1 times on live tree, 1 times Dead pine branch
