Signs of Infestation
Carpenter ants hollow out wood to nest inside. Sometimes you will see sawdust near places it should not be. You may also come across carpenter ant frass, a mixture of wood pieces, ant body parts, and excrement. In addition, you may find holes, hear rustling sounds coming from the walls, or notice swarming. These signs may point to a carpenter ant infestation.
Indoor nests are typically satellite colonies to a larger nest outside the home. In the yard, you may then see trails on the ground between the nest and foraging areas. Carpenter ants need to have access to moisture in order to survive. You may find them indoors where food and drink are accessible. Typically, they also indicate the presence of a moisture problem.
While you may see an indication of a carpenter ant infestation, it is easy to confuse carpenter ant damage with termite destruction. If you spot damage, you should immediately consult a professional. Only a trained expert has the know-how to correctly distinguish between the two.
Carpenter Ant Control & Elimination
At Pest-X, we take a complete approach. We'll start by providing you with a free inspection to correctly identify your pest problem, which is key to applying the right treatment. Our certified specialists won't misidentify winged carpenter ants as termites, like many other companies do. Following inspection, we will choose the most appropriate options for your particular carpenter ant problem. These include specialized dusts, non-repellent dusts, and/or baits. We may also make recommendations about bushes and trees in your yard, as well as your structure. Prevention techniques maximize our treatment's effectiveness.
In most cases, a one time specialized treatment plan can resolve the problem. This is normally the case if you correct any conducive conditions we will have gone over with you. With that said, yards prone to carpenter ants would benefit from an ongoing service like one of our tri-annual packages. Our team of trained professionals would keep an eye on your property and alert you to any potential threats.
Prevention is the best form of defense.
