What Are the Signs of Infestation? 

Some signs to know if your building has a carpenter ant infestation include:

  • Presence of swarmers in the small openings of wooden surfaces.
  • Accumulated debris below the holes.
  • Rustling sounds produced by the movement of ants in tunnels.

Identifying Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are widespread across North America. Their presence is often mistaken for termites because of their wood infestation. There are numerous carpenter ants species, all with their unique features, which makes them even more challenging to identify. However, there are some characteristics you can look out for when detecting carpenter ants. These include:

  • When looked at from the side, their waist and thorax (the area behind the head) are perfectly round.
  • They are usually black with some red or brown.
  • Their length varies between 7 mm and 10 mm.
  • The queen and male ants are larger as compared to the worker carpenter ants.
  • Although they don't eat wood, they make their homes inside it.

It is easy to tell carpenter ants apart from other types of ants because the latter don't infest wood. At Pestroy Inc., we can quickly identify a carpenter ant infestation on your property and eliminate it efficiently. To book an inspection, please get in touch with us.


Damage Caused by Carpenter Ants

It is essential to tackle a carpenter ant infestation as soon as possible. If left untreated, a single infestation can produce colonies, which will escalate the damage. A thriving colony of carpenter ants can cause severe damage to the areas on your property. Their choice of home is wooden structures, which is why they can destroy wooden areas such as doors on your property. When nesting in wood, they damage it from the inside, which can threaten your property's structure. These ants can even get through crevices and areas such as those found in your insulation.


What Should be Done to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants?

Here are some steps to control a carpenter ant infestation:

  • Do not keep firewood inside your building.
  • Clear infested wood from the vicinity of your building.
  • Do not bury wood debris near your office.
