Carpenter Ants

Contrary to common belief Carpenter Ants do not eat wood. They excavate the wood in order to build spaces for their nests, hence the name “carpenter”. They usually invade wet, moldy or damaged wood first. But often continue into dry, undamaged wood. Carpenter ants range in size from one-quarter inch to up to an inch

They can enter your home through small cracks around windows, doors, or wire holes. They build their nests outdoors in various wood sources, including tree stumps, firewood or landscaping. They need a constant water source to survive.

Carpenter Ant Prevention:

  • Eliminate standing water around your home and dry out moist areas.
  • Prune back trees and shrubs that might be touching your house.
  • Calk cracks and openings around the base of your home. Weatherstip windows and doors.
  • Stack firewood well away from your home. Insects build nests in stacks of wood.
