Carpenter Ants

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Carpenter Ants Dangerous?

Carpenter Ants are not directly dangerous to humans, as they do not bite or sting. However, they can cause significant structural damage to homes and buildings by tunneling through wood to build their nests, potentially leading to costly repairs.

Why do I have a Carpenter Ant problem?

Carpenter Ants are attracted to homes and properties that provide food, water, and shelter. They are particularly drawn to moist or decaying wood, which is easier for them to excavate. Leaky pipes, woodpiles, and damp building materials can all contribute to a Carpenter Ant infestation.

Where will I find Carpenter Ants?

Carpenter Ants can be found both indoors and outdoors. Inside, they prefer dark, damp, and secluded areas such as attics, basements, or wall voids near water sources. Outdoors, they can be found in woodpiles, tree stumps, or decaying logs.

How do I get rid of Carpenter Ants?

To get rid of Carpenter Ants, you should first identify their nesting sites, remove any decaying wood, and repair moisture issues. Use bait stations specifically designed for Carpenter Ants and apply insecticides to the perimeter of your home. However, for the most effective results, you should hire a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Carpenter Ants?

Preventing Carpenter Ants involves proper maintenance of your home and yard, addressing moisture issues, and sealing potential entry points. Keep food in airtight containers, clean up spills and crumbs, and avoid leaving dead wood or debris on your property. Regularly inspect your home for signs of Carpenter Ant activity and address any issues promptly.

What are Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants (Camponotus spp.) are one of the largest species of ants found in the United States. They are usually black, red, or a combination of the two colors. Carpenter Ants are known for their wood-destroying behavior as they excavate wood to create their nests. Unlike termites, they do not consume wood but can still cause significant structural damage to homes and buildings if left unchecked.
