Carpenter Ant


Carpenter ants make their nests by excavating wood. These ants can best be identified by their large size compared to other ants, as well as their tendency to infest wood. 

These ants first nest in damp or wet wood but may build paths through dry undamaged wood. They can enter homes though holes and cracks, as well as overhanging wires or branches. They build nest in various outside wood sources, such as tree stumps, firewood, or landscaping and need a constant water source to survive.

Carpenter Ant Prevention

Prevention of carpenter ants includes eliminating moisture and standing water sources, cutting back branches from structures, sealing cracks and holes, as well as moving wood sources stored near structures.
