one of the most common wood-destroying insects

Carpenter ants are one of the largest species of home-invading ants living in the United States. These ants are black, red, or a combination of colors. Workers have large, powerful mandibles they use to chew through wood and create tunnels and nesting galleries. Carpenter ants do not feed on wood; they only create nesting sites inside of it.

are wood-destroying insects dangerous?

Carpenter ants and other wood-destroying insects are responsible for causing billions of dollars in damages across the country each year. Being proactive and keeping these insects at bay is essential to protecting the wooden structures on your property, along with saving your bank account and sanity.

why do i have a wood-destroying insect problem?

If your yard or home is offering carpenter ants easy access to food, water, and shelter, they will take full advantage. Carpenter ants forage for food in gardens, trash cans, compost, pet bowls, and outdoor eating areas.

Outdoors, carpenter ants’ nest in water-damaged or decaying wood. Nesting sites include dead trees and stumps, rotting fence posts, and old piles of wood. Carpenter ants nesting outside near homes and other structures eventually find their way indoors while foraging for food. Once inside, they are attracted to water-damaged wood, and may stay and create a satellite nest to expand their colony. They usually place their nests behind walls, under floors, or in crawlspaces.

how can i prevent wood-destroying insects in the future?

In addition to our professional services, the following prevention tips will help you to keep wood-destroying insects out of your home:

  • Prevent water damage in your home by placing weatherstripping around windows and doors and keeping gutters clear.
  • Caulk the cracks in exterior walls and the foundation of your home.
  • Dry out basements and crawlspaces using dehumidifiers.
  • Fix any leaky hoses or outdoor fixtures.
  • Seal gaps in the roofline.
  • Place metal flashing on the end of deck boards.
  • Varnish, stain, or paint wooden structures on your property.
  • Remove fallen trees, tree stumps, and wooden debris from your yard.
  • Keep garbage cans and compost bins away from the outside of your home, and make sure they have tight-fitting lids on both.
