Identifying carpenter ants
Carpenter ants do not actually eat wood, but they chew wood to excavate cavities to nest in. Once inside your home, they will eat insects and anything that the homeowner will eat. Carpenter ants come in different sizes and differ in appearance. Some of the ants are small and others are quite large. Worker ants tend to between 1/4 inch and 3/4 inch long. Winged ants are usually longer.
Some species of carpenter ants take up residence outdoors, but other carpenter ants prefer infesting structures. When they are outside, they use hollowed out trees or firewood piles as nesting places. When they decide to come inside they will enter the home just below the wood surface of the structure.
It is also possible for a founding queen to start a colony in the home. It may take years for the homeowner to become aware of the problem.
It is important to treat this infestation promptly. The most effective method of treatment should be left in the hands of qualified pest control experts. Professionals in the pest control industry are up to date on the latest, safest and most effective methods for eliminating these pests from the home. A do-it-yourself approach is not advisable.
