Carpenter Ants

carpenter-ant
Carpenter ants have a segmented body (three parts). The carpenter ant chews wood or wood based products. They are considered excavators, because they do not actually eat wood, but remove it so they can nest in the wood.

Typically, they begin outside, and will enter homes and buildings through various methods. For example, access points can include windows, cable lines, and under siding, just to name a few. After entering buildings, they prefer nesting in dead and/or damp wood.

Carpenter ants can and do follow pheromone trails to and from a home. Untreated carpenter ants will set up “satellite colonies” in the home, which often results in damage to the structure.

Treatment for carpenter ant control:

A) Exterior foundation treatments will not only kill many of the insects, but will also help prevent the carpenter ants from trailing back into the home.

B) Exterior baits are also used to eliminate carpenter ants in areas that are common nesting sites, such as trees, fence posts, and wood piles.

C) Interior applications are used in areas where the carpenter ants are found, or are suspected to be. They are also applied where the ants have left wood frass, or wood shavings, behind.
