Carpenter Ant Control
There are over 900 species of carpenter ants worldwide, 50 of which are in the U.S and are considered among the most troublesome ants found in and around homes.
Carpenter ants hollow out wooded areas and use wood to make their nests. The wood damage they cause can be compared to that of termites, but can be distinguished by its clean and sand-papered appearance.
Colonies consist of 3000 + carpenter ants, 200-400 are winged in a mature colony, however, most species are black, or have very dark bodies which vary in size from 1/4-3/4 inches long.
They feed on insects (dead or alive), and anything that people eat.
