How Did I Get Carpenter Ants?

Carpenter Ants enter homes, condos, and apartment buildings most often through cracks in doors and windows and occasionally through plumbing. Like most pest insects they are looking for water and a suitable home. While they prefer to nest outdoors in wet or moist trees or wood, they sometimes move indoors or around the exterior of the home. They select areas where wood has been exposed to severe moisture. This could be rotting or decaying wood in walls or even decks and porches.

Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Carpenter Ants?

There may be multiple nests. If you do not eliminate all nests, the colony may rebound. Carpenter ants build two types of nests: parent colonies and satellite colonies. The parent colonies consist of a queen, eggs, and workers. The satellite colonies consist of workers, older larvae, and pupae. Satellite colonies are formed when the parent colony lacks sufficient space or a food and water source. There may be multiple satellite colonies. All nests must be located and treated.

What Are The Signs Of A Carpenter Ant Infestation?

Presence of worker carpenter ants inside the home:
