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.

Signs of Carpenter Ants Presence

Be on the lookout for these basic signs of ant presence.

  • Trails around your pantry, kitchen, and areas where food may be stored
  • Sawdust looking material (workers ants kick it out of their nests during the excavation process)
  • You hear sounds in the quiet of the night. (a sign the ants are chewing your wood!). Some describe the sound like rustling cellophane.

We advise a well formulated plan -carpenter ant control plan- in order to get completely rid of these termite-like ants. Upon suspicion of invasion by these ants seek immediate treatment.

If you don't, they will quickly chew everything in their path and weaken all wood in your home.
