How Did I Get Carpenter Ants?
Carpenter Ants enter homes, condos, and apartment buildings most often through cracks in doors and windows and occasionally through plumbing. Like most pest insects they are looking for water and a suitable home. While they prefer to nest outdoors in wet or moist trees or wood, they sometimes move indoors or around the exterior of the home. They select areas where wood has been exposed to moisture. This could be rotting wood in walls, attics, decks and porches.
Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Carpenter Ants?
There may be multiple nests. If you do not eliminate all nests, the colony may rebound. Carpenter ants build two types of nests: parent colonies and satellite colonies. The parent colonies consist of a queen, eggs, and workers. The satellite colonies consist of workers, older larvae, and pupae. Satellite colonies are formed when the parent colony lacks sufficient space or a food and water source. To rid your home of carpenter ants all nests must be located and treated.
How Can I Identify Carpenter Ants?
Worker Carpenter ants can vary in size from 1/4 to 3/4 an inch in length. The color of carpenter ants also varies among species, ranging from jet-black to dark brown, red, black, yellow, orange, yellowish tan, or light brown. They are most commonly black, but some carpenter ants exhibit both red and black coloration. It is best to let a professional exterminator identify whether the ants are in fact Carpenter Ants or another of the 25 common invasive ant species.
