Do You Have a Carpenter Ant Problem?
Learn the Key Characteristics of Carpenter Ants and How to Identify Them
Are you noticing piles of sawdust in your home? These may be created by a nest of black carpenter ants. Carpenter ants don’t eat wood – they only nest in it. Still, this nesting can cause significant structural damage to your home if left untreated. Carpenter ants prefer moist wood which is easier to tunnel through so you may notice them in areas of your home that have moisture problems such as a leaky roof, window, or pipe.
What Does It Eat?
The black carpenter ant is omnivorous and eats a variety of food. They cannot digest cellulose, or wood, but they do cause damage by tunneling through wood.
Where Does It Hide?
Carpenter ants favor moist wood and will nest in the wooden members of a house or structure. Carpenter ants create galleries in the wood and sawdust-like piles sometimes accumulate below their tunneling activity.
What Can It Do to Me?
Carpenter ants have been known to cause significant structural and property damage to homes.
