Spire Pest Control’s Carpenter Ant Exterminator Service

Is the wood in your home deteriorating? Do you see little piles of sawdust around? Do you hear strange scratching noises coming from inside your walls? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be in the middle of a carpenter ant infestation. It’s  scary when you find carpenter ants or see the damage they cause because nobody wants big ants tearing up their home. Here atSpire Pest Control, we want to help you control carpenter ants; you don’t  need to live in fear of carpenter ants anymore.

Signs of a Carpenter Ant Infestation

You might already know  you have a carpenter ant infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs  carpenter ant exterminators look for.

Sightings

Large ants crawling inside your home or other building, especially if they’re coming out of holes in the walls, ceilings, baseboards, cabinets, or other home features.

Wood Damage

Piles of fallen wood shavings, especially if they’re near an ant hole inside the building.

Noise

Scratching or rustling sounds coming from inside the walls.

Things to Know About Carpenter Ants

  • Carpenter ants can cause serious damage to your property by tunneling through wood. It’s important to recognize them when you see one.
  • Carpenter ants have a constricted “waist” and three body regions
  • These ants are often up to 5/8 of an inch long, but the queen can be as long as one inch.
  • Some of them may even have wings, making it easy to confuse them with termites.
  • Both carpenter ants and termites have two pairs of wings. There is a front pair and a back pair. On termites, both the front and back pair of wings are the same length. On carpenter ants, the back wings are significantly shorter than the front wings.
  • Carpenter ants seem to prefer building their nests in wet or damaged wood outside. However, this does not mean they won’t build nests inside your walls, as well.
  • Once carpenter ants develop a primary nest, they will create satellite nests providing the large queen ants places to lay more and more eggs.

Helpful Carpenter Ant Prevention Tips:

  • Move all dead or moist wood as far from the foundation of your home as possible.
  • Seal all cracks with caulk to prevent carpenter ants from getting inside your home.
  • Reduce excess moisture in and around your home. Ensure water drains away from the foundation.

Carpenter Ant Control FAQ

What is the difference between a carpenter ant and a termite?

Knowing the difference between these two pests can save you time, stress, and money.

The Wings:
Ants have four wings of different lengths
Termites have four wings of the same length

The “Waist”:
Ants have a tiny waist
Termites have a broad waist

The Antennae:
Ants have an elbow bend in their antennae
Termites have straight antennae, which are like a tiny string of beads.

How much damage can carpenter ants do to a home?

Even though carpenter ants don’t eat wood, they can still cause a huge amount of damage. Homeowners across the nation and spend thousands of dollars out-of-pocket because insurance companies don’t cover damage by insects.

Do carpenter ants eat wood?

No. True to their name, they carve wood, just like a carpenter. Carpenter ants use their large jaws to cut galleries and tunnels. But unlike termites, they don’t eat wood.

Can I treat carpenter ants on my own?

Carpenter ant infestations can be extremely serious and difficult to remove without professional help. Homeowners often spend vast amounts of money and resources to fight carpenter ants, but without long term results.

Do carpenter ants only infest damaged wood?

While some species prefer wet or damaged wood, they can also infest undamaged or dry wood, but that’s much less common.

Why do carpenter ants keep coming back?

One reason carpenter ant infestations are difficult to treat is because they make satellite nests, which the queen can replenish if they die out because of treatments.

If the carpenter ants in your home are a satellite nest, it could be many yards away from the main nest. This means the queen will be unaffected by non-professional treatments. The queen could completely restart a new infestation in your home without detection.

What is a carpenter ant satellite nest?

Mature carpenter ant colonies can create satellite nests which are separate from the main nest but still dependent on the queen. Satellite nests allow the ants to widen their territory and find more food sources. The ants march back and forth between the two nests to carry eggs and to replenish food for the main colony.

Are carpenter ants easy to find in the house?

No, because they don’t like to come into the open. Once they gain entry to the house, carpenter ants tend to stay inside the wall voids and out of sight. Because of this, they can remain undetected for 8-10 years. If you sense trouble, callSpire Pest Control. We’ll send a licensed and certified technician to your home to get rid of carpenter ants today!
