Southeast Michigan, Metro Detroit & Ann Arbor Area Carpenter Ant Treatment

Carpenter Ant

How to Identify A Carpenter Ant Infestation?

Have you seen some sawdust around your home or even small burrows in walls? Are you sure you don’t have termites?

If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then you may have a carpenter ant infestation. Although both eat wood and other organic material, signs of a carpenter ants vs. a termite infestation vary significantly. Learn important signs to give yourself peace of mind and save money.

Carpenter ants are one of the largest species of ants found throughout Michigan and the United States and can be the first major sign of a problem. Carpenter ants love to chew through wood as their name suggests. They are characterized by their large black bodies, growing up to about 12 mm in size. Carpenter ants, like most other species of ants, are social insects, meaning they will live and interact with their own kind in fairly large numbers.

Carpenter ants can often be found on wooden objects inside your home such as baseboards, door jambs, and window sills are all popular places. One of the most common misconceptions about carpenter ants is that they eat wood. This is false. Carpenter ants, unlike termites, do not eat wood but in fact use their strong mandibles to excavate the wood in order to create nesting sites. These sites serve as main nesting sites or can be satellite sites interlinked with the original. As a carpenter ant burrows, it leaves behind sawdust-like material called “frass.” Termites are pests that eat wood and leave behind moist soil and mud where they burrow. The wooden homes and passageways of carpenter ants are clean, smooth, and look almost sandpapered. If you see any wood shavings on the ground or hear rustling in your walls, you may have a carpenter ant problem.

Carpenter ants are not to be taken lightly. If you suspect a carpenter ant infestation, you should contact professional pest removal services immediately.

Why You Might Have Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants, like all living things, need food and shelter. If your Detroit Metro or Ann Arbor home has these two essential qualities, then carpenter ants may want to move in. Carpenter ants prefer to burrow through moist or rotten wood. If your home has a moisture problem, all the better for a carpenter ant.

Like all ants, carpenter ants enjoy sweets and sugary liquids. If you have unsecured candy, cereal, or spilled soda somewhere in your home that could entice carpenter ants to your home. Keeping your food and drinks in sealed containers and immediately cleaning up any spills is a great way to prevent a potential carpenter ant problem.

Reasons to Treat Your Carpenter Ant Problem Immediately

Fighting these destructive creepy crawlies is no small task. Carpenter ants may quickly spread and create new nests at an alarming rate. If you don’t exterminate every nest, they are very likely to rebound and create new satellite colonies. Do it yourself methods may show some results, but are certainly not as effective as the monthly or quarterly pest control service from Guardian Pest Control.

As Carpenter Ants burrow through your home, it may cause massive structural damage. Carpenter ant damage does not occur as quickly as termite damage. It may take years to have a serious structural problem, but it is important to find the carpenter ant infestation as soon as possible.
