Carpenter Ant Treatments
Carpenter ants can be just as or even more harmful than termites. As they construct nests in wood by tunneling and nesting inside wood structures Structural damage can be caused by them. They’re large, black ants sometimes with dark brown or dark red areas. Carpenter ants are similar in appearance to the common pavement ants, but can be recognized by specific physical features. The carpenter ant has a single pinched node between the abdominal cavity and the thorax, while most ants have a dual node. Carpenter ants burrow in dead trees and unlike termites they don’t feed off rotting wood. They are known to hollow out sections of trees to create their shelter. They have the ability to travel up to 100 meters in hunt for food and they are most active during the night. They don’t sting but worker carpenter ants are known to bit.
