Carpenter ant control can save the structure of your home from significant damage
Carpenter ants are large, black in colour and build their parent colonies in dead, damp wood. Carpenter ants do not eat the wood, they simply hollow it out. They often build their nests in wall and ceiling joists. If left untreated, these joists will significantly weaken due to the tunnelling and can eventually collapse.
Piles of sawdust (or frass) can commonly be found in close proximity to a carpenter ant nest. Frass is a combination or finely chewed wood dust and other insect waste.
Parts of a house most susceptible to carpenter ant infestations are areas adjacent to or directly in contact with windows, roof eaves, decks and porches. These are all areas most vulnerable to moisture.
Carpenter ants are most active at night. Evening is the best time to try and locate a nest – just follow the marching band. A carpenter ant will search up to several hundred feet for food.
