SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION Most carpenter ants nest in dead or hollow trees, but the working ants tend to find homes to invade. When carpenter ants make their way into your house, they will hang out in areas most exposed to moisture such as your windows, doors and porches. These pests range from dark brown to black and are 1/4" to 1/2" long. Their antennas are elbowed in shape and their front wings are usually longer than their hind wings. They prefer to chomp on dead damp wood. The main difference between these pests and termites is that they do not consume wood, whereas termites do.

Signs of Infestation:

Carpenter ants are very dangerous especially when it comes to an infestation. The most obvious sign that you have an infestation is just seeing these pests in your home. Although they may be in your home, this does not necessarily mean they are nesting there, these ants forage for food and water miles away from their nests. If they are infesting your home, you will start seeing wood shavings around windows, decks and anywhere there is wood. You might also hear faint noises as they burrow into wood and create their nests. If you let an infestation get out of hand, it can become severe and the wood structure of your home can become compromised.
