In today's blog, I am going to talk about how to recognize and spot a carpenter ant infestation.
As detailed in an article by Dr. Jim Fredericks for PestWorld, carpenter ants are larger than most other ant species. They
range in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to
three-quarters of an inch. They are black or red, or
sometimes a combination of both colors.
Typically, carpenter ants act as “silent destroyers,” quietly
tunneling through wood without any external signs of damage. In
some cases, homeowners may notice wood fragments and sawdust that
fall through cracks the ants have created. Badly damaged wood will
have small openings, like little windows.
If you're concerned that you have carpenter ants in your home or place of business, give Dave a call at 1-800-400-6009.
