Carpenter Ant Behavior

The main colony is generally located in a dead wood outside the home, where it can have access to moisture, and other colonies are often found in dead limbs, stumps and other wood. A water leak or poorly ventilated crawl space can provide a welcoming environment for these invaders to set up a colony and, once established, the main colony will spawn satellites, which are usually found inside the home. Trunk trails in the ground connect satellites to the main colony.

Locating an Infestation

It is important to identify the problem and seek appropriate carpenter ant treatment as soon as possible because these are among the most destructive pests to property. Signs of a carpenter ant infestation can be difficult to determine because homeowners often don’t notice the main colony and all the satellite nests, and ants are found in a variety of colors. Meanwhile, the pests may be causing damage to your home.

Eliminating the Ants

Carpenter ant removal requires knowledge: it is essential to locate the nests and treat them with the right chemicals to ensure that the entire colony is destroyed, or else the problem will recur. A professional exterminator is best equipped to find and eradicate these pests from your home or commercial property, and our trained technicians have extensive experience to completely eliminate the problem.
