Understanding Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are a common pest that can cause significant damage to your property. Unlike termites, they don’t eat wood but carve out nests within it, which can weaken the structural integrity of buildings. Identifying and addressing a carpenter ant infestation early is crucial to prevent costly repairs.

Identifying Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are larger than most other ants, ranging from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length. They are typically black but can also be red or a combination of colors. Key identifiers include:

Size: Larger than other common ants.
Colour: Black, red, or a combination.
Habitat: Prefer moist or decaying wood but can also nest in dry wood.

Signs of Infestation

To determine if you have a carpenter ant problem, look for the following signs:

Frass (Wood Shavings): Fine sawdust-like material near wooden structures.
Rustling Sounds: Often heard within walls as ants move through their tunnels.
Winged Ants: Presence of winged ants indoors, especially near windows, indicates a mature colony.
Hollow-Sounding Wood: Tapping on wood surfaces that sound hollow can suggest tunneling inside.

Dangers of Carpenter Ants

While carpenter ants do not eat wood, their tunneling can cause severe structural damage over time. They can also compromise the integrity of insulation, wiring, and other building materials.
